By introducing change management and version control software from M.A.C. Solutions for more than 400 of its programmable devices (PLCs and HMIs) at its facility in Oxfordshire, Diamond Light Source is minimising the risk of machine downtime caused by PLC back-up or software code errors, thus avoiding costly delays and disruption to its round-the-clock service for academic research scientists and industrial customers.
Located at the Harwell Science & Innovation Campus in Didcot, Oxfordshire, Diamond Light Source is the UK’s synchrotron. It works like a giant microscope, but is 10,000 times more powerful, harnessing the power of electrons to generate bright light, which scientists can use to study anything from fossils and jet engines to viruses and vaccines. The machine speeds up electrons to near light speeds so that they give off a light 10 billion times brighter than the sun. These bright beams are then directed off into laboratories known as ‘beamlines’, where scientists use the light to study a vast range of subject matter.
By introducing change management and version control software from M.A.C. Solutions for all its programmable devices (PLCs) in five production plants across three different Continents, heat exchanger manufacturer SWEP has minimised the risk of machine downtime, thus avoiding costly delays and disruption to customer delivery schedules.
Part of the Dover Corporation, SWEP is a leading supplier of compact brazed plate heat exchangers (BPHE), which are used in applications where heat needs to be transferred efficiently, for example, in air conditioning, refrigeration, heating, and industrial applications. SWEP has approximately 850 employees and is represented in more than 50 countries. The company’s six production plants are located in Sweden, Switzerland, USA, Malaysia, Slovakia and China.
