Brückner’s 70 years of success through
Mrs. Regina Brückner, CEO, Brückner Trockentechnik, Germany.
For 70 years, BRÜCKNER has been the
worldwide partner for all companies which are drying, coating
and finishing web-shaped materials: whether clothing fabrics,
nonwovens, carpet, glass or coatings - the variety of materials
to be processed has never been limited.
Today, it is no longer just a question of
machines, but rather of automation and control systems. The
topic of digitization and Industry 4.0 opens up completely new
possibilities for increasing productivity, reducing the use of
resources and improving quality. In addition, an increasing
shortage of skilled workers can be addressed by more intelligent
invested, developed and implemented a lot in following areas in
Intelligent assistance systems monitor the
machine settings in the background and provide the machine
operator with information on how to run the system even more
productively and consuming less resources. Studies have shown
that optimizing production parameters can increase production
speed by up to 40% and/or reduce energy consumption by up to
A newly developed simulation tool helps to
optimize existing recipes. The many machine parameters to be set
have been reduced to the essentials and can in future be
calculated automatically on the basis of the textile key data.
Pakistan Textile Journal congratulates
Brückner on their 70 years of success through
innovation and their contribution towards the
Pakistani textile industry over the years.
For the service, there is a new
maintenance tool that proactively gives the machine operator or
maintenance department service instructions that can be tracked
in a logbook. In future, a newly developed online service
platform will support our customers with all service inquiries.
The technicians communicate directly with the customer via video
conferencing - partly with augmented reality. Documents such as
circuit diagrams or maintenance manuals can be viewed and
explained together and spare parts can be ordered directly. For
regular maintenance processes, photo or video illustrations can
be stored in local language. Technically caused downtimes can be
significantly reduced by these new systems. This increases
system availability and thus productivity.
The exchange of machine data with
higher-level control station or ERP systems is easily possible
with OPC-UA. This allows to rationalize processes in the textile
factory and to monitor the quality.
