MANUFACTURERS

We can help you optimize the control applications of your equipment and build software solutions to monitor and acquire data from your various process steps.

Automation of processes and machines

To free your key employees from repetitive tasks

Some repetitive manufacturing processes can be automated to allow you to assign your employees to higher value-added tasks. 

Based on recognized methods and solutions, we support you in the construction of automated systems, to the scale of your operations and according to your specific needs.

Following that, we remain available to you throughout the life cycle of your system to accompany you in the evolution of your system.

Rigorous monitoring of production steps… without the paper

Digitization of production management processes – a key issue

Are batch and workflow management, productivity monitoring and quality control documentation fundamental issues for your business?

The guarantee of a reliable, suitable and rigorous production and quality management environment becomes a key advantage for your operations. 

Data integration with your ERP is also an integral part of Centris’ offering.

Achievements

The following customers have seen their operational reality changed by the implementation of modern automation solutions.

Logo Eolopharm

Ecolopharm

Chambly (QC), Canada

Ecolopharm manufactures environmentally friendly pharmaceuticals (100% recyclable) by plastic injection. 

We have worked with Ecolopharm in recent years to implement a monitoring and data acquisition system that allows us to monitor in real time the multiple critical parameters, production data (cycle time, rejection rates, etc.) as well as documenting the causes of stoppages of the various presses in their production plant.

Pratt & Whitney

Longueuil (QC), Canada

As part of the implementation of the new automated production lines in Longueuil, P&W had expressed the need to connect the line management system with their ERP software, the SAP product. 

Centris was commissioned to develop this imposing communication bridge between the two systems using OPC XML technologies and the PI/XI layer of SAP.

Logo YKK

YKK

Montréal (QC), Canada

YKK is a world-class zipper manufacturer founded in Japan in 1934 and established in Canada for nearly 54 years. They develop all the machines used for the manufacturing of their unique products themselves.

Centris Technologies, in partnership with the Institut National d’Optique, YKK Canada and Lapalme Groupe Conception Mécanique has developed a revolutionary 3D Laser inspection machine. This equipment ensures that the products delivered to their customers are performant without the slightest defect.

FAQ’s

Here are some frequently asked questions about software system implementation and automation. If you have any further questions, contact the Centris team.

In general, Centris can help you identify a “pain point” in your operations that could be the subject of an initial deployment. For example, a process where management is more complicated and performance data is required, could be the subject of an initial manufacturing management project. A system (MES) could help with the planning and tracking aspect and then be extended to other processes within your plant.

Centris Technologies generally uses software solutions from the large MES family. Products such as the Ignition/Sepadoft combination or the CooX software package have been deployed in the past to improve the manufacturing operations of several companies. If instrumentation or control products are also required, Centris works with major brands such as Allen Bradley, Omron, Beckhoff and Schneider.

The typical lifespan of a supervision system is easily 15 years or more. In fact, with routine updates of the application and operating systems, mainly to avoid the eventual obsolescence of Windows platforms, such a system has an infinite theoretical life.

This is obviously very variable. For example, a small factory producing plastic containers has instrumented 8 production lines with a yield monitoring system for about $100,000. Implementing a manufacturing management system for a large plant, with more than 75 people on the floor, a hundred machines with flexible production capacity can range from $500,000 to $1,500,000 depending on the desired set of functions.
