Siemens-Solution-Partner on/off ensures high availability, transparency and efficiency at Barberini 

Barberini GmbH in Grünenplan – the German subsidiary of the Italian ophthalmic lens manufacturer – has expanded its production capacity with a fifth melting furnace. One of the priorities of the project was to make the thermal processes for melting and cooling transparent and easy to operate, while ensuring high availability. The Siemens Solution Partner on/off engineering gmbh, headquartered in Wunstorf, Germany, was able to provide a solution that met all of the operator’s requirements. on/off worked together with the plant’s former owner and current service provider, Schott AG, and the entire project was planned and completed in only 100 days. That amounts to as little as one-third of the time frame for most projects of this type.
