Borg Manufacturing - Somersby Press Line 6 & 7

Borg Manufacturing - Somersby Press Line 6 & 7
Crossmuller recently completed commissioning on two turnkey Wemhoner Short Cycle Press lines for Borg Manufacturing at their plant in Somersby, NSW. These press lines are designed to handle quicker machine configuration changes compared to existing press lines which allows for more efficient operation on smaller size production runs.

 

Crossmuller's project scope included;

  • Mechanical and Electrical Design
  • Installation
  • Design and configuration of Wonderware MES system with integration to ERP for download of production work orders, reporting of raw material consuption and management of finished goods inventory.
  • Recipe Management system using Wonderware's Recipe Manager Plus
  • Safety Integration
  • Commissioning

One of the key features of this project was the seamless integration between the press line infeed and outfeed and the "Pack Store" Warehouse.  Driven by orders from the Dynamics AX ERP system, raw board is automatically delivered from the warehouse to the infeed of the presses, and finished boards are returned to the warehouse to be available for customer order picking.
