Automation – Galcont™

Galvatek’s Galcont™ process automation system has been constantly developed and improved for already four decades to meet ever-increasing demands in surface treatment plant control.  The system has the following key features:

  • Freely programmable treatment programs
  • Different treatment programs can run in the line at the same time, while each bar follows its own program
  • Automatic process control and optimization
    • Operator’s main task is to handle the loading and unloading
    • Loaded bars are sent automatically to process
    • Optimization ”sees the future” and takes into account:
      • Treatment program of the loaded bar
      • Bars already in the line, their treatment programs and their progress
      • Time needed for transporter moves
      • Capacity of parallel stations
    • Also applicable with waste water treatment plant
