Nexto brings out the best in wooden floors

Swedish company Bona decided to use a Beijer Electronics control solution after redesigning and upgrading critical processes in their production. Decision was based on user benefits linked to our technology, boosted by superior support. Family-owned Bona AB is a multinational company with its headquarters in Sweden. They provide products for the installation, maintenance and renovation of wooden floors throughout their lifetime, with dedicated solutions for professionals, homeowners and parquet producers.

Bona settled for a complete automation solution based on Nexto modular PLC, iX HMI operator panels, remote I/Os, BFI inverters and Ethernet switches for controlling the renovated and upgrade filling machine, filling various sorts of cans with polishing chemicals used for wooden floors.
The transportation and filling process is now efficiently controlled with remote I/Os and BFI inverters via EtherCAT. The reason for using EtherCAT was process speed, benefits of simple configuration and the reliability associated with powerful diagnostic features. Another great advantage was having a built-in EtherCAT master in Nexto. Other key factors for using a complete solution from Beijer Electronics was the full range product offering combined with the technical support during the development and commissioning.
