prover/2 - Automation

demig is one of the leading enterprises in Europe in the area of metals for the automation of heat treatment plants. We also have a lot of experience in the glass and ceramics industry as well as in the chemical and food industry.

In the program prover/2 our engineers develop project specific solutions for all automatization tasks. Standard modules are used as a basis and then customized specifically for each customer. By doing so, low-priced solutions for all degrees of automation can be offered

In the expansion of the process control system prosys/2 with an SQL- data base, production data are available online at any time, so that all divisions of the company can receive necessary information, transfer data or even directly influence the process.

Selected examples for automation projects

Chamber furnace line
Continuous belt furnace
Automatic line
Automatic line for aluminium parts

The industrial terminal DE-BT 1000 is a display and input terminal for the automation solutions in prover/2. As it is only a terminal, a further host system for the control is needed (e.g.: process supervisory system prosys/2). The host system transmits the messages/commands via different communication systems to the DE-BT 1000.

Module 1

Charge / Product tracking (with single part tracking)

In the basic version, the material flow is recorded at the charge level. With this charge tracking, basically two kinds of charges are differentiated: real and virtual charges. They result from the kind of installation charg-ing or from the material flow through the installation. In the expanded version, the size of the trading units can be changed during the treatment. Finally it is possible to track individual parts on their way through the installation.

Using installations with more than one zone (usually continuous band or continuous flow installations), an optional zone-oriented presetting of setpoint can be carried out.


  • Real charges

    Concrete charge packets (mostly on charge transporters or plates) at defined positions.

  • Virtual charges

    Abstract charges, which are spread over several con-crete or virtual positions, e.g. by distributing the heat treatment parts on a belt.


Module 2

Charge-related process data recording

This module is closely associated with the charge tracking. Because of this charge relation, there are also two differ-ent principles.

  • Real charges in periodically working installations

    Depending on the installation where the charge is current-ly treated, a measurement file is created and assigned to the charge. If the charge goes through several installations successively, then such a file will be created and assigned each time. This process can be repeated as many times as needed.

  • Real and virtual charges in continuously working installations

    All process variables are recorded first in a central pool. Because of the charge tracking, the system knows the time when the charge was treated in the different installa-tion sectors.From this information, a measurement file will be created to which the charge will be assigned when leaving the installation.


Module 3

Transport command generation for the automatic loading and unloading of installations

The logistic is based on the information from the charge tracking. For a fully automation line, the process supervisory system has the ability to generate transport commands for the transport unit (loader, manipulator, shuttle etc.) based on the disposition of the load and unload facilities. For the transport command generation exits also an additional option for the time optimized usage of pre-heating furnaces. Likewise, an empty plate management can be integrated, where the empty plates will be taken back to the magazine store and then be managed by the system. Users can request an empty plate for loading at any time.
