ABOUT IML TECHNOLOGIES
IML technologies has a great commitment to automation. High demands and challenging applications are something we like, and we are dedicated to finding smart and creative solutions. We’re sure our customers would agree when we say that we really do things with passion.
We take great plesure in helping our customers to be competitive. We want to share what we know about successful automation solutions with everyone involved in production in the plastic packaging industry.
We’re at our best when it comes to high-speed manufacturing of thin-walled containers and lids.
”WE’RE A THREE-BUTTON FACTORY”
One of our customers expressed the need for user friendliness in a telling way: ”We’re a three-button factory. We need a start button, a stop button and a reset button to use when something goes wrong. Any other buttons are bad news.”
The customer’s statement can be said to encapsulate our business idea and what we offer while confirming that we have the right idea. As system-builders we need to make very high demands on ourselves if we want to continue to help Swedish industries be competitive. Which we do.
EASY TO USE
Our customers are experts at producing containers and lids of all kinds with very high demands on quality and technical accessibility. Production is often around-the-clock and it’s not possible to always have staff with advanced automation skills on site. That the production facility is easy to use and easy to handle is critical.
Our strength as automation provider is that we can build sophisticated technical solutions that anyone can use, making for problem-free production every day of the year.That’s why we pay so much attention to user-friendliness and build intuitive operating panels that are easy to understand. For highest availability, in the meaning that the facility runs smoothly, we incorporate instructional alarms and reliable systems for handling malfunctions.
In the plastics industry, production is often run 24/7, and often with both regular and temporary staff. Therefore, a large part of our projects are devoted to making the systems as easy to use as possible.
When everything works perfectly, start and stop are enough. But reality is something else, and there will be mistakes, disturbances and unexpected events. Our automation solutions are easy to reset and restart for that reason.
