Feyen Zylstra was chosen to complete all electrical work at the Gerber Infant Nutrition Plant in Fremont, MI. Feyen Zylstra upgraded the controls system on Palletizer #1 from an obsolete Allen Bradley PLC 2 Programmable Logic Controller to a new Allen Bradley ControlLogix 5000 processor with built-in safety control. In addition, remote Ethernet I/O distributed control and safety signals to components were installed across the equipment.
Our Automation experts utilized the ControlLogix 5000 safety PLC to provide increased performance, diagnostics, and safety. Preplanning and testing were essential to ensure the success of the program and to minimize downtime on the plant floor.
The entire project was completed in one month and will extend the reliable, usable life of this equipment for many years to come. The success of this project has led to continued work at Gerber Infant Nutrition.
