Following its success at AUSPACK 2019 and the launch of Open IIoT, SMC, a specialist in pneumatic control engineering to support industrial automation, will be showcasing at FoodTech Qld in July, engaging with visitors and demonstrating its solutions for the food and beverage industries.

In these industries, 24/7 operations, stringent hygiene standards and zero defects must be met. William Lebihan, SMC’s Head of Sales and Queensland State Manager, says that this is where the company’s specialist team comes in.

“We deliver customised solutions to the industry and ensure that our customers experience the highest levels of operational equipment efficiency,” he says. “Whether you’re farming cattle or vegetables, we have what it takes to support your automation requirements from paddock to plate.”

The company is firmly focused on developing products for the future, delivering the competitive advantages for its customers by making small changes that will in turn lead to big savings.

“Our mandate is centered around flexible, efficient components that are designed alongside our customers with factories of the future in mind,” Lebihan says.

SMC has a clear strategy and the technology to help implement Industry 4.0 solutions for all its customers. Today it’s all about faster and more flexible processes and plants to ensure increased, sustainable production and reduced costs.

“SMC is also playing an active role in upskilling industry via ongoing training and using state-of-the-art training systems and aids, to further enhance the skills of maintenance teams for optimised productivity maintenance scheduling and fault finding analysis,” Lebihan says.

In addition, SMC will use FoodTech Qld as a platform to showcase one of its latest innovations for robotic applications, the EX600 wireless manifold. This decentralised solution is compatible with Ethernet/IP and Profinet, can withstand electric noise and is suitable for harsh, industrial environments.

“This wireless and decentralised fieldbus system can manage both digital and analogue signals, as well as pneumatic products,” Lebihan says. “As a highly reliable unit, it makes use of frequency hopping techniques to prevent interference from other wireless equipment. Also, data encryption stops unauthorised access.”

SMC will be at Stand D16 at FoodTech Qld, which will be held at the Brisbane Convention and Exhibition Centre from 28th to 30th July.
