Surface finishing and filter expert opts for consistent engineering Surface treatment and finishing requires a wide variety of highly complex systems for pre-treatment, powder coating, painting and drying, as well as for automation relating to transport and the handling of parts. The relevant engineering is also accordingly complex. Rippert Anlagentechnik works for this with Engineering Base (EB), which is developed by the software developer Aucotec. The Surface finishing and filter expert Rippert Anlagentechnik GmbH und Co. KG, which has maintained its position in the market for over 45 years with painting and filter systems, automation and industrial fans, is an experienced plant construction company in this sector. Its growth and the constantly increasing demands for highly automated systems led the East Westphaliabased surface finishers to search for a modern engineering system which would grow in tandem and be viable for the future. Data and information integration as a topic Consistency was the central topic in the search conducted by the plant construction company. The desire for significantly more consistent processes was the driving force behind the decision. “Out of all providers considered, only the software developer Aucotec with Engineering Base (EB) was able to fulfil an Entire project’s requirements from the process engineering flow diagram (P&ID) to control technology,” recounted Thomas Quante, Head of I&C Design at Rippert and EB administrator and key user Thomas Möller. The North German system house celebrated its 30 th anniversary in 2015 and succeeded in achieving sales growth of around 80 % in the last six years, mainly due to the database-driven software EB. From sales via processing and manufacturing to commissioning, all disciplines access the same common data model to view or edit engineering information. EB’s database and object orientation as well as its special multi-layer architecture make it possible. The central data storage enables even highly complex tasks to be completed quickly and cooperatively, also across multiple sites. The application server connecting the client and database relieves the client’s computer and manages the business logic with its elements and logical relationships to each other. “With EB, different HANNOVER MESSE Production hall with pre-treatment facilities at Rippert works with a perfectly designed information system 46 WORLD OF INDUSTRIES
