PlantPAx Distributed Control System Reduces Downtime For Mallinckrodt

Source: Rockwell Automation

For system operators with the nations leading supplier in prescription pain medication, one of the most challenging aspects of relying on an outdated system was the limited support. Learn from their experience and how this company upgraded their control system.

Mallinckrodt Pharmaceuticals' old technology did not allow maintenance engineers to perform predictive maintenance. The daily production reports would pinpoint problems, but only after they had occurred. With reactive maintenance as their only solution, unplanned and longer downtimes were inevitable. Realizing the cost of downtime is greater than the cost of change, Mallinckrodt completed their upgrade by replacing the legacy PLCs with a PlantPAx® distributed control system from Rockwell Automation. In the end, commissioning only required five weeks, minimizing system downtime for the install.
