American Metal Processing (AMP) is the largest rotary heat-treating facility in the U.S.A. When their PLCs began experiencing regular failures and the operating system of their HMI approached its end of life, president Grant Pinkos knew the company was "on borrowed time." 

In addition, the majority of system components were not integrated or automated beyond direct motor control. What was the best road to a modern system? How could the company achieve the data integrity, tracking, and connectivity required by their customers?

See how AMP approached their modernization project and improved reliability, alarming, operator control, traceability, and data logging.
