One cheese vat - 100 different cheeses – Siemens automates cheese vat for Giovanelli GmbH

The cheese vat from Giovanelli GmbH automated with Siemens components offers integrated recipe management and supports remote access via PC or mobile phone. For the automation of the cheese vat, Siemens used a combination of high-performance hardware and software components.

Whether for yogurt, curd or cheese, cheese vats are an indispensable component in the manufacture of milk products. This innovation from Giovanelli offers companies in this sector the opportunity of producing more efficiently and therefore increasing their competitive edge; especially because the vat is also a pasteurizer (a machine used to preserve beverages or food), a key sales driver. By selecting suitable automation components, Siemens was able to meet customer requirements for a flexible, high-quality and cost-efficient solution. The vat is controlled via a Simatic S7-1214C. The basic controller with integrated communication and technology functions is ideal for compact automation tasks. For operation and visualization, a package comprising a Simatic IPC panel PC and Simatic WinCC Runtime Advanced visualization software is used. 
With a well thought-out project architecture, Siemens was able to meet customer requirements and create a flexible, high-quality and cost-efficient solution. The Simatic IPC panel PC from Siemens is ideal for the cost-effective implementation of HMI applications and can be integrated easily thanks to its fanless cooling.

Easy visualization and reliable remote access

As a preconfigured, turnkey complete solution comprising an industrial PC and robust single touch display, a Simatic IPC (Industrial Touch Panel PC) supports the cost-effective implementation of Human Machine Interface (HMI) tasks, as required by Giovanelli GmbH. Due to passive cooling, the solution can also be integrated easily. The PC-based HMI solution WinCC Runtime Advanced in turn includes the central HMI components for visualization and messaging, and features recipe management as standard. The relevant data sets can be easily created and managed. Remote access is supported via the Smart Server option, which means that the vat can be accessed via mobile phone or computer in order to control or monitor processes.
