Cerulean, part of the Coesia Group, has opted for a complete solution from Omron for the control system of its packaging solutions. This has also prepared the company for the development of Industry 4.0 capabilities in the future.

Cerulean has been supplying precision test and measurement equipment solutions to the tobacco, oral hygiene, healthcare and cosmetics industries for over 70 years. Its clients include leading organisations and the solutions it has developed include the design and manufacture of specialist equipment for packing empty, squeezable tubes into cartons.

The Challenge: Seeking a powerful solution to a complex issue

The company invests a significant proportion of its revenue on in-house research and product development. The move from its incumbent supplier to Omron originated from the need for a more controllable, scalable and flexible solution that would enable equipment to be integrated smoothly into the production line. This included integration into complex lines in which both upstream and downstream equipment needed to work in synchronization.

Optimized solution for flexibility and scalability

Omron provided both a hardware and software solution to Cerulean’s needs. This included its Sysmac programmable logic controller (PLC) NX1P2 PLC, designed to handle applications from small-scale equipment to entire production lines. The company also supplied its NB5Q human-machine interface (HMI), which provides faster, more efficient control and monitoring. Finally, Omron provided and R88A servo systems which optimize everything from the machine design, installation and commissioning right through to maintenance once the equipment is in production.

The full Omron solution has given Cerulean greater control of its production line, more flexibility and a scalable capability for the future. The servo systems provide a faster and smoother operation that is Industry 4.0 ready.
