Tom Houston, Director of CustomCare at CDE and Ben Strickland. "Both myself and the team here at Gill Mill have been using CDE Core Technology for 12 months. We now use the proven technology as a management tool, which is reviewed hourly and then reported to the entire site team on a weekly basis. The system ultimately offers great visibility in terms of operational performance and identifying bottle necks in the process; what's measured is easier to manage,” said Ben Strickland, Quarry Manager, Gill Mill Quarry and Recycling.

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, utilizes 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 under six months.

Tom Houston, director of CustomCare at CDE, said: “We are constantly striving for innovations to help customers maximise 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 optimisation 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 between sand, aggregates and silt output.

If the plant is running at below optimal utilisation where weightings and output are unbalanced against set targets or failing to maximise 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, minimise 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.
