Behind Material Handling Success: The Value of Plant Automation

Whether your plant produces precast and prestressed concrete, ready-mix and dry-mix concrete, concrete pavers and blocks or you run a bagging plant, customizing your material handling system with automation is the best way to ensure the success of your final product from day to day.

Automation plant controls offer

  • precise control of mixing and aggregate distribution
  • easy data processing
  • reliability
  • removal of guesswork
  • support for new and existing plants

Batch plant control systems

Control systems come with a variety of configurations and options. Those offered by Standley Batch feature some or all of these properties:

  • touch screens
  • computer-based interfaces
  • web-based remote diagnostics and services
  • electronic database collection
  • printing
  • industrial Ethernet connectivity
  • remote i/o drops
  • plant floor call boxes
  • industrial programmable logic controllers
  • and more

Depending on the plant’s production type, our range of control systems can be configured to different applications – depending on the requirements and product of the plant.

Field control devices

Finding the perfect mix design requires testing and trial and error. Field control devices aid in fine-tuning mix designs so your end product meets your desired specifications. Use field control devices for

  • aggregate moisture control
  • mixer moisture control
  • level indication
  • web-based plant monitoring
  • aggregate handling
  • concrete color handling
