In order to increase the production of blood bags Fresenius Kabi decided to expand their production equipment by adding two new production lines for preparation of the solution and for assembling and filling. The project included new infrastructure such as cable routes and switchboards. ATS designed the electrical system, created the control software and integrated it all into the existing production control system. Modifications were also made to the existing system, such as changing the visualization system from iFix to Siemens WinCC and installing 3 new IPC panels. ATS also delivered an intelligent conveyor system that tracks and traces products, analyses them, provides statistical reporting, synchronizes the production cycle and is able to remove defective units from the process.


Fresenius is a global health care group with products and services for dialysis, the hospital and the medical care of patients at home.

ATS is an Independent Solution Provider, with more than 25 years of experience and a wealth of experience undertaking continuous improvement initiatives and Manufacturing IT solution design, deployments and 24/7 support assignments.
