Vancouver, WA (PRWEB) October 28, 2013
Capstone Technology Corporation (http://www.capstonetechnology.com), provider of the dataPARC system, a leading technology for the visualization of real-time data, and ProSensus (http://www.prosensus.com), a global specialist in multivariate data analysis, today announced a strategic technology agreement to provide an innovative and comprehensive batch process monitoring and control solution. The joint suite of products combines ProSensus' expertise in detecting and diagnosing abnormal batch behaviour and implementing automated corrective action with the powerful visualization and alarm management capabilities of Capstone's dataPARC System. Both companies will offer the products, ProBatch Online and ProBatch Control, which provide a comprehensive set of tools for modeling, troubleshooting, monitoring and controlling batch processes.
"The integration of dataPARC's capabilities with ProSensus' software suite will produce technology solutions addressing markets such as pharmaceutical, specialty chemical, petrochemical, pulp and paper, and food and beverage,” said Ron Baldus, President of Capstone Technology. "It will build on the strength and successes we already have in the continuous manufacturing sector to address the unique challenges posed by batch manufacturing."
By using ProBatch Online and ProBatch Control, customers will minimize expensive scrapping or rework costs by receiving early alerts of anticipated end-of-batch quality problems with the ability to implement automated mid-course corrective action.
"In today’s fiercely competitive global economy, consistent product quality is an imperative for every manufacturer. Effective batch operation requires a high fidelity, predictive view of where the process is going, whether product quality targets will be met, and what corrective action to take when needed; the ProBatch Online and ProBatch Control systems provide this capability", says Mark-John Bruwer, CTO of ProSensus. "This solution is flexible to a wide variety of batch manufacturing scenarios. It combines the world leading technologies of both companies to create a new benchmark in real-time batch monitoring and control."
