ATS received an order from a Dutch media company that publishes major national newspapers including Algemeen Dagblad, Trouw, de Volkskrant and Het Parool.


This is a modernization project, at the printing plant in Amsterdam, of the control of two independently functioning overhead cranes. These cranes ensure the supply of paper rolls on which the newspapers are printed.

The ATS team will carry out a complete upgrade of the hardware, Siemens S5 PLC to Siemens S7 PLC, including all I/O modules, an outdated Lauer HMI display and more. Following that, the software will be migrated and then optimized so ensure that it operates correctly.
