Oil price fluctuations impact directly on raw material costs in the plastics industry. Steep rises in the cost of raw materials mean that manufacturing plants need to ensure high uptime of their injection blow molding machines and precise dosing and use of raw materials in order to increase production efficiencies and to reduce the amount of raw material wear and tear.
Contel operates in the following areas of the plastics industry:
- Control systems for production machines.
- Dosing and weighing installations.
- MES (Manufacturing Execution Systems), with emphasis on KPIs for improving and streamlining production processes.
Contel’s traditional customers in the area of industrial control include Palram and Cafrit, as well as many others.
Contel ITS has deployed MES software at Netafim, Amraz and Amgat, etc.
