Matrix Composites engages KAPP Engineering to further extend and implement automation of macro-sphere production at the Matrix Composites Syntactic Manufacturing Plant in Henderson, WA.

The new project incorporates two phases where the initial phase would be work scope identification and generation of a control philosophy. Matrix uses complex recipes on CitectSCADA for the manufacturing of macro-spheres utilising twenty rotating tumblers. This project involves the automation of the generation of macro-spheres to keep seven silos constantly topped up for production.

The second phase of the project will involve in house programming, testing and witnessed testing works at the KAPP Engineering premises utilising a virtualised replica of the site CitectSCADA server/client architecture.
