After significant design works, Arkopharma, assisted by its partner, Technord, has developed and installed an industrial weighing software on a computing development platform proposed by Wonderware.
Based on a standard market solution, this application, referred to by the Laboratories as "MES-ArkoWeigh", now perfectly meets the specific needs of the company.
The results after a year of operation are positive:
- 5% drop in material loss during weighing activities;
- 13.6% productivity rise,
- secure control process
- reduced file rereading time,
- saving of 60 kg of paper/year, i.e. 2 trees saved each year by reducing
- the number of documents printed.
The MES-ArkoWeigh solution was presented at Connect#2 where the work performed by the team managing the project was praised and rewarded by an Award Application.
This award is yet further proof of Arkopharma and its team's commitment to turning the industrial site in Carros into a centre of Excellence.
 Connect#2, the unmissable meeting on industrial IT, was held in Paris on the 12th and 13th of October 2016.
