Dieffenbacher's Cebro is a holistic smart plant concept combining Evoris digitalisation and advanced engineering solutions with operational excellence and sustainability initiatives.

Cebro and Evoris support smart board manufacturing The digital platform Evoris is a pillar of Cebro. Supported by artificial intelligence (AI) analysis of live data, Evoris is based on standardised interfaces that collect and process sensor and actuator data, including camera footage. It gives manufacturers insight into their production and processes, thereby accelerating decision-making.

Evoris is an open system and browser-based. With its modular app structure design, it is easily extendable and updateable. All apps use a modern, intuitive interface and can be securely operated from any mobile or desktop device within a plant’s network.

One essential app is Anomaly Detection. It uses AI to detect deviations from automatically defined target values for important plant parameters. This enables operators to react quickly to anomalies and prevent potential errors before they occur, thereby maximising plant availability.

Another app is Quality Prediction. This self-learning system steadily predicts specific board quality parameters during production to help operators easily spot irregularities and take countermeasures to reduce waste, save resources and increase productivity.

Diefffenbacher says Cebro’s advanced plant engineering solutions help customers create smart synergies within a plant. Intelligent heat recovery concepts, including reusing heat from the press and dryer exhaust air elsewhere in the production process, are among many ideas to reduce energy costs and emissions and increase profit.

To help manufacturers achieve operational excellence, Cebro uses optimised processes and innovative technologies. Examples include a new forming station for particleboard production that improves board quality through increased spreading accuracy; the EVOsteam steam preheater, which increases capacity by up to 20%; and the new Emission Measurement service, which fosters a better understanding of actual emission flows and their reduction possibilities to make processes more sustainable and less costly.

Cebro also helps manufacturers balance economic and sustainability goals to build a better future for business and the environment.

Dieffenbacher says wood recycling solutions that help free manufacturers from dependence on fresh wood supplies are one way that it supports economic success and sustainability. Others include intelligent environmental and new energy-generation technologies that save costs, cut emissions and reduce a plant’s carbon footprint.

Our vision for the future of FireHawk is to continue providing effective early fire detection to help combat fires while they are still manageable. We will continue using the most up- to-date equipment and technology while remaining affordable and providing user-friendly, simple-to-use products.
