The User Day for ABB System 800xA customers demonstrated how a leading polymer manufacturer is using high performence control desks to improve the effectiveness and efficiency of control room operators.
Polymer plant adopts extended operator workplaces EOW
Improvements in the way operators work were achieved following the installation of ABB’s extended operator workplace (EOW) control desks at the Victrex polymer plant in Lancashire. Victrex, a specialist in advanced polymer solutions for industries including aerospace, energy and medical, has used the EOWs to optimise production, reduce the risks of human error and improve operator health and safety.
Following a presentation on the facilities and functions of the EOW by its manufacturer CGM, part of the ABB group, System 800xA users were given a chance to see the control room in action.
