Automation, Industry 4.0

The best and brightest are attracted to and stay with manufacturers offering highly digitized and automated facilities that allow them to focus on process management and critical thinking.  Wasmer will integrate automation into your building materials manufacturing process to streamline production and monitor quality parameters in real time. Industry 4.0 services optimize supply chain by improving inventory management, reducing lead times, and increasing responsiveness to customer demands.   

Natural Resource Management

Building materials manufacturer can benefit from Wasmer’s knowledge in a range of energy- and water-saving services. Energy audits analyze energy use and identify areas where improvements can be made. Automation systems can optimize energy use by automatically adjusting lighting, heating, and cooling based on occupancy and environmental conditions.  Water use audits, lead detection, and water recycling systems are services that help reduce water consumption, lower water bills, and enhance sustainability.    

Industrial Controls Engineering

Wasmer can design and implement automation and control systems that ensure consistent and accurate production processes, including PLCs, HMIs and SCADA systems.  Process optimization implemented through production process data-gathering informs waste reduction, quality improvement, and efficiency increase solutions.  Wasmer can assist building materials manufacturing companies comply with regulatory requirements by designing controls systems that meet environmental and safety standards.  This includes monitoring and controlling emissions, minimizing waste, and ensuring workplace safety. 

Equipment Management

Building materials manufacturing plants often have large, complex equipment that is costly to replace. In addition, older equipment may be less efficient, create hazardous environments, and not properly sized.  Wasmer can assist in creating an equipment management plan that balances investments in equipment upgrades with maximizing equipment life.
