Requirements

Batch Weighing & Filling System

BOC Gases Ireland Ltd had done extensive searching for a new computerised batch weighing and filling solution for their C02 filling plant in Dublin.  Their current system was at the end of its life and it was constantly breaking down, causing havoc on their production floor.

They wanted to modernise the current filling operation to improve throughput and be more efficient.  For this to happen they needed to add much more functionality to radically improve productivity.  They also needed additional reporting features to help improve control.

Increased accuracy and achieving 100% traceability was of paramount importance.

They wanted a bespoke system, customised to meet each and every one of their requirements, a flexible solution which could be changed over time to meet ever changing demands.

One of the main things that impressed BOC from the start was DEM’s application  knowledge and ability to supply multiple solutions that matched their needs.

Approach

DEM’s approach started by DEM attending onsite for a full project scoping. The Project scope documented BOC’s current flows and also documented what they had envisioned the end solution to be. One of the main things that impressed BOC from the start was DEM’s application knowledge and ability to supply multiple solutions that matched their needs.

The other key factor for BOC was that DEM was also a hardware supplier so they could offer a complete solution from start to finish, software and hardware from one company.

Result

BOC Gases now have a new computerised Batch Weighing & Filling solution from DEM Machines.  Where DEM records the fill volume on each and every cylinder, giving them complete traceability and all the reporting tools they need.

“We now have an integrated, very efficient, streamlined, professional filling software and  hardware system.”

“Since the system was  installed productivity has increased due  to the system being more efficient  and  the new equipment being more accurate.”

“The efficiency of the new system gives us full control of the fill application which prevents the overfilling of the cylinders.”

The new reporting tool now allows BOC Gases to create production planning and management of stock.

The benefits for BOC gases is the cylinders are no longer over filled, minimising giveaways.

Summary

  • 100% Accuracy
  • Improved Profit from fewer giveaways Faster  Throughput;  quicker workflow. Improved Efficiencies
  • 100% Traceability
  • Increased Control
  • Advanced  Reporting

“We now have an integrated, very efficient, streamlined, professional filling software and hardware system.”
