Automation Solutions for Food & Beverage Plant

Innovative Solutions

ITAC was selected to provide a turnkey automation solution for the San-J Richmond plant expansion. Rockwell Automation’s configuration tools enabled a quick turnaround that resulted in the delivery of over a dozen custom designed, multi-door control panels, along with another six HMI panels. Rockwell’s PlantPAx® Process Automation system featured ControlLogix® PACs with FactoryTalk® View HMI visualization for process control. PowerFlex® variable frequency drives and SMC pneumatic valve systems were packaged to provide electrical and pneumatic control of the process. Our control panels were designed for flexibility using Rockwell’s Modular Control System (MCS™) for distribution. Utilization of Rockwell’s Integrated Architecture Builder and Proposal Works software enabled the design to be completed in under 8 weeks.

ITAC’s automation and controls team collaborated with InSpec Group weekly over the course of 6 months to assure the project’s success. Our  principles were leveraged to provide the client with up to the minute communication and decision resolution. Utilizing our Assured Project Management (APM®) process, every aspect of our execution from the design narrative, software functional specification, design, and fabrication through factory acceptance testing, shipping, and commissioning reflected our commitment to a principled approach to automation system delivery.
