Toscotec has responded to customer demand and introduced its latest generation of Distributed Control System TT Brain DCS.

TT Brain DCS is an open system developed on standard Advanced Process Libraries (APL) by Siemens, and Toscotec said the latest generation offers the latest innovative functions and add-on customised tools.

The supplier said it has designed several additional customised functions that have been successfully integrated into the DCS, including tracing systems for jumbo and rewound rolls, and recipe management systems.

It offers useful functions to various users including maintenance managers and technicians, process engineers, energy managers, production engineers.

TT Brain DCS integrates with Voith’s QCS e BTG Group’s dataPARC and it can also exchange data with the paper mill’s Manufacturing Execution Systems (MES) and Enterprise Resource Planning system (ERP).

Sebastiano Goddi, Software Department Manager at Toscotec, said: “By building on customer feedback, Toscotec has pushed ahead with the development and implementation of a wide array of functions designed precisely to simplify and streamline the daily work of operators, maintenance and process managers, or anyone else closely working on the tissue machine.

“The breakthrough idea behind this effort was to create an even more open system tailored to the reality of each individual paper mill.”
