Robust and Fail-safe PROFINET Switches in Practical Use

Future-proof machine networks: Anyone who builds machines and plants with a very long operating life, like Erema, always has the future in mind.

This is why the Austrian manufacturer of plastics recycling plants has been relying on Profinet since the introduction of the latest control generation. Profinet switches from Helmholz play a central role in the implementation of corresponding machine networks.

In a study quoted by the BVSE Plastics Recycling Association, the management consultancy McKinsey expects 80 percent more plastic waste worldwide in the current decade by 2030. So there is no question: global consumption of plastics has been growing rapidly for years - and with it the need for efficient recycling plants, especially as recycling rates are rising in many markets. Erema Engineering Recycling Maschinen und Anlagen Ges.m.b.H. has also grown up with this development: started in 1983 as a pioneer in the industry, the company headquartered in Ansfelden near Linz in Austria is today the world market leader in the development and manufacture of plastics recycling machines and system components.
