Automated MDF manufacturing MERBOK

Today we visited Merbok factory curtesy of IEEE.

The factory was fully automated.All were controlled by Allen Bradley PLC s... The number of PLCs were staggering, the io number topped 10000, all the machines were huge and controllers , SCADA were truly exceptional.
I never thought that i will ever see such a huge Automated factory.

The great thing is, this was 100% in line with my training where they do systems which are similar but vastly  smaller in scale.

The machinery was fully automated and the workers were there only for quality assuarance , it is a perfect example of the wonders that can be done with the effiency of a process by automation.

Cheers to this wonderful science which helps man kind to further the boundaries of knowledge !

This is unbelievable
