Automated dispensing system

Mandate:

The Systemex Automation team was mandated to design a system that would dispense a chemical solution into wire plating basins. The goal was to create a turn-key technical solution. The Automation team was responsible for the mechanical engineering and for making a tank to hold the main CUSO4 solution that would be poured into each basin. A regulatory system for acid and copper equipped with dosing pumps was designed and installed. The system is monitored by a control panel that uses proportional calculations to regulate the required amount of copper and acid. An operator interface was added to modify recipes and monitor operation. The main goal of the system was to increase product quality by eliminating any contact with the chemical basins and to ensure optimum safety for operators.
