Bodycote Hot Isostatic Pressing Plant

Proactive maintenance program enabled steady productivity and better planning of capital expenditures

Bodycote Hot Isostatic Pressing Plant

AVEVA improves control and consistency for a hot isostatic pressing (HIP) plant, resulting in reduced re-runs, lower operations costs and increased customer and operator satisfaction.

Goals

  • Improve control and consistency of furnace temperatures
  • Enact a proactive maintenance program to save equipment costs
  • Provide better tools to increase operator efficiency and accuracy
  • Reduce product re-runs

Challenges

  • Existing data system did not provide historical information or useful reports
  • Uniformity of temperatures difficult to control between furnace units of different sizes
  • Maintenance scheduling based on calendar dates, not run times or performance data

Results

  • Proactive maintenance program enabled steady productivity and better planning of capital expenditures
  • Recipes have increased run-over-run product consistency and customer satisfaction
  • Operator efficiency improved; fewer operators accomplish more work with better accuracy
  • Reports provide more visibility and help facilitate better decision making

"Since getting AVEVA, we’ve noticed a decrease in product run-wrongs and parts that need re-processing."

– Shawn Crawford, Plant Engineer
