CDE launches Intelligent Plant with AI technology

Bottom: The world’s largest wet processing plant for C&D waste, situated alongside the company’s natural sand and aggregates processing plant, at Velde Pukk in Stavanger, Norway utilizes CDE Intelligent Plant technology and has seen a significant increase in output.
Industry innovator CDE - a leading manufacturer of wet processing equipment - is redefining how the modern plant operates through the integration of artificial intelligence (AI) to boost productivity.
Launched at bauma 2019, Intelligent Plant, CDE’s pioneering next generation technology, utilises advances in machine learning and the Internet of Things (IoT) to monitor and automate previously manual processes.
Enabling the plant to make smart decisions in real time, Intelligent Plant can boost productivity by up to 40 per cent* with a payback period of less than six months.
Tom Houston, director of CustomCare at CDE, said: “We are constantly striving for innovations to help customers maximize output with minimum effort. Intelligent Plant has created thinking plants that reduce downtime, maintenance and fixed costs while increasing yield and revenues for plant owners by almost half – and in some cases even more.”
Material overloading can cause considerable disruption to the running of a plant. Overloading can impact plant optimization resulting in lower yields and the need for greater maintenance. Intelligent Plant uses a series of belt weighers to accurately establish the amount of material which enters the plant and determine the ratio among sand, aggregates and silt output.
If the plant is running at below optimal utilization where weightings and output are unbalanced against set targets or failing to maximize on production capacity, the plant will respond to address the issue itself in real time by, for example, adjusting feed rates.
At the centre of Intelligent Plant is OptiMax technology, the latest addition to CDE CORE - an innovative range of technology solutions developed to give customers greater control of their plant. CORE uses automation and sensors to monitor and enhance productivity, minimize downtime, automate processes and lower operating costs while maximizing profitability.
Any CDE plant ordered during or within three weeks of bauma 2019 will receive a free Intelligent Plant upgrade, including a three-year subscription. Existing customers interested in upgrading their plant to an Intelligent Plant are eligible for a 40 per cent discount.
CDE will be exhibiting in the outdoor exhibition area North/East – Stand FN 1022/1 and Stand B2 119 in the main exhibition hall at bauma 2019, from April 8 – 14.
