PROMAS ST (Structured) factory automation software embodies 40 years of KSE’s experience in animal feed production processes. Integrate your factory operations seamlessly with our unmatched expertise in the market. KSE operates globally – wherever you are, we’re able to support you. It ensures hugely simplified management, operation and maintenance – for simple plants to complex plants with thousands of I/O points.
Each software module integrates its own control, visualization and alarm handling. Your needs are probably already written and tested in any ‘special’ modules, and object oriented codes are easy to reuse and recycling means you can use them immediately. And if not, it’s easy to modify them.
You can add new equipment easily without rewriting the complete code, and you’re not tied to a few people with specific knowledge. System testing is easy through a simulation mode that lets you solve problems without affecting production. During training, the simulation can give everyone a hands-on feel of the production processes.
The overview screen gives a clear picture of the status of all shipments. The operators and drivers are guided step by step through the entire intake process with PROMAS ST, from delivery and weighbridge to handling at the intake pit or blow intake. With the multilingualism and the possibility to use RFID, the chance of errors is reduced to a minimum.
The detailed process and machine control ensures a correct dosage. In case of problems, the operator can intervene directly. This leads to higher quality, fewer rejects and less downtime.
There are different mixer executions wherefore specific functions are available; such as multiple drives, rotation, product detection, etc. Also available are various controls such as mixing time monitoring (prevents demixing) and start detection at a filled mixer. Liquids or hand tipping can be easily added to the mixer.
The PROMAS ST pelletizing line control software is independent of machine brand and type, and is therefore compatible with all regular brands of pellet mills and pre-compacting equipment. It can control pelletizing lines, double pelleting lines, pelletizing lines with expanders, extruders, pre-conditioners and it can control also the processes of ripening, drying, cooling, crumbling, sifting and (vacuum) coating.
PROMAS ST ensures you have the control in a user-friendly way. The use of modules means you can upgrade or modify your logistics infrastructure without having to completely renew the bulk outloading control software.
The advanced functions for production remain available (batch on demand, batch size optimization, raw material replacement and contamination control).
PROMAS ST is a completely integrated system through which all data is available in a central database. Measured process values can be added automatically or manually. This data is converted into useful information for the operators and management. This is possible, for example, with a real-time display on a dashboard or by generating a report. This stimulates your employees with specific information such as KPIs (Key Performance Indicators), creating a culture of optimization.
Due to various laws and regulations information needs to be recorded from the supply of raw materials to the delivery of finished products. Our Track & Trace software ensures in case of calamities, the cause or the causer is identified quickly.
A Maintenance Management System (MMS) reduces the risk of breakdowns and saves you money by ensuring that machines and spare parts are maintained and replaced at the right moment. To manually implement MMS is very labour intensive. PROMAS ST carries out MMS fully automatically, giving you instant access to data.
“It was mainly KSE’s process know-how and experience in the animal feed sector that convinced us to choose PROMAS ST. That confidence has more than paid itself back because KSE was literally on hand day and night during the difficult period as we switched over from the old to the new system. Thanks to the upgrade to PROMAS ST, we are able to respond quickly to all opportunities the markets offers, both now and in the future”.
