Alejandro Mestre Ceciarelli is managing partner and Eduardo Gaytan is a solutions consultant with Tecno Productos. The Mexico-based distributor serves several industries, including the food and beverage industry.
In the tequila sector, where the firm has a long-standing presence, reporting requirements by the US FDA have been a key driver for process standardization and optimization.
“Tequila is an old industry. They still have a lot of processes that waste water, energy, and time,” Alejandro explains. “With the new technologies Rockwell Automation provides, we’re focusing on how to provide sustainable processes that enhance productivity with automation.”
That includes using Rockwell Automation’s PlantPAx® Distributed Control System to upgrade control and PanelView™ Graphic Terminals to visualize the entire production process from recipe and batch management through to equipment cleaning.
