Ferlin Bridge

Ferlin Bridge for Grip, Insight and Control.

FERLIN BRIDGE

The FerlinBridge is the bridge between all our machines. By means of a web-based application, our dosing and mixing machines, hopper loaders, filters, and dryers can be operated from any device as long as it is connected to the same network. In addition, the FerlinBridge offers the possibility to be integrated into various protocols such as SQL, OPCUA, MODBUS and PROFIBUS, for example in MES, SCALA or ERP systems. Industry 4.0, also known as smart industry, becomes thus very accessible.

FERLIN BRIDGE
OFFERS TOTAL CONTROL
Connecting and using data to make life easier may just have the same impact as the accountant's calculator. His work suddenly looked very different—more time for what is really important, less time for things that are necessary. The FerlinBridge offers something similar. Through a web-based application, all our machines can be operated in a very user-friendly way. In addition, the FerlinBridge offers real-time data that can be used by the operator. Data that helps him to improve the end product and to get the process further under control. The FerlinBridge also offers the possibility to integrate our machines in an ERP, MES or SCADA system.

STATISTIC PRODUCTION CONTROL


The statistic production control function displays current trend lines very easily. By working with references, these can also be easily linked to customer orders. This way, you can demonstrate exactly what was actually dosed. The statistic production control function easily displays current trend lines.

INTERFACE

When the depositors, conveyors and dryers are all connected in a network, the machines can be operated with a web-based application on any device with a browser and access to the same network. This interface is very user-friendly. Users can be added themselves, and there is plenty of room to assign rights to users. The user-friendly interface of the FerlinBridge makes it easy to work with.

GRAVIMIX

The GRAVIMIX is connected to the network via an Ethernet cable. Once everything is installed, the machine can be operated with the application. Data like the used recipe, dosed mix ratio, alarm history, parameters, user history and many more can be stored. This way, it is possible to see at any time what has happened to the material, and it creates a perfect traceability.

MOVAC

By adding an I/O expansion board to the GRAVIMIX and an Ethernet expansion to the PLC, the hopper loaders can also be integrated with the FerlinBridge. The same ethernet cables that are used with the GRAVIMIX, are now also used for the hopper loaders so that far fewer cables need to be pulled. In addition, the suction times, cleaning cycles and other parameters of the hopper loaders and filters can be adjusted. Finally, all this data is stored in the SQL database. This makes it possible to see at any time what has happened to the material and provides perfect traceability.

KNIFE & ERP INTEGRATABLE

The FerlinBridge offers the possibility to integrate the connected machines into ERP and MES systems. This gives you all relevant business processes in one cover. Thanks to this automation, work can be done faster and without mistakes.

INDUSTRIAL PC

The FerlinBridge is a software system that is pre-installed on an industrial PC. By connecting this PC to the network, the FerlinBridge can be accessed by tablet, mobile phone, laptop or any other device connected to the same network.

AUTOMATIC DOCKING STATION

To have total control, you can integrate the machines into an ERP, MES or SCADA system by using the FerlinBridge. By adding the automatic coupling station to the FerlinBridge, you can choose at any location which material to feed. No physical action is needed anymore, which saves time, but also the chance of incorrect connections is theoretically zero. In addition, this data can also be stored in SQL. This way, it is possible to see at any time what has happened to the material and it creates perfect traceability.

NETWORK

Our dosing machines, conveyor systems and dryers can all be operated in the FerlinBridge. An Ethernet network is required to connect all machines, as well as an industrial computer with FerlinBridge software.
