Industry of tomorrow will be different. More volatile markets,
new technology capabilities, and increased pressure on performance. But with change comes opportunity. Our innovative solutions
analyze all the plant floor’s operational data, integrate it with external data, and place it into context to enable better, faster plant management decisions.
Efficiency in energy-intensive market
There is no question that cement production is a high energy consumption industry. As urbanization increases throughout the world, the cement industry is necessary to help support city growth. Today, the promise of energy efficiency in the buildings materials industry is taking hold.
The China National Building Material Group (CNBM), for example, has an eye on energy efficiency. Headquartered in Beijing, it is the No. 2 cement producer in the world. With more than 300 cement manufacturing plants, CNBM also executes turnkey cement and glass manufacturing plant projects.
For CNBM, energy efficiency doesn’t just make sense for the environment. It makes sense for its bottom line, because energy consumption accounts for more than 60 percent of CNBM’s total costs. The factory has deployed the Schneider Electric Kiln Expert Control System to help address its energy consumption demands.
By cooperating with Schneider Electric, and applying their world leading energy management solutions, we have managed to bring high efficiency to our energy consumption and production cost. The Schneider Electric system plays a guiding role in our production.
An “evolutionary revolution”
We see the Industrial Internet of Things as an “evolutionary revolution.” Industry always has been at the forefront of connectivity, productivity, and efficiency — trying to yield improvements and reduce operational costs. This is the first sector in which we really connected everything. Today, we have the end-to-end solutions for automation and control systems to enable our industrial customers to thrive in the digital economy with smart manufacturing.
