Digital Line Management System

The line management system provided by Broetje-Automation offers tailored digital integration solutions for both new and existing production lines. The system allows the control and monitoring of the entire production line, which helps to improve speed and consistency. Integrated automated and manual process control provides application-specific flexibility within the customer environment.

Additionally, Broetje-Automation provides flexible integration options for customer MES and ERP systems. With these features, the line management system can provide increased connectivity and interlaced production, enabling businesses to streamline their operations and optimize their production processes with the help of digitalization.

Interconnectivity of various industrial applications

Integrating different industrial applications in one production line is a challenging task. At Broetje-Automation we enable higher quality, better production rates and good process tracking of the previously processed stations through our networked and integrated line management system. While the machines interact with each other and pass the structures to the next machine fully automatically, the system keeps track of the workpiece status. Thus, work packages can be taken over quickly in case of anomalies in production.

To ensure the protection of our customers’ shopfloor data, the advanced software solutions are hosted on mirrored databases.
