Wedge System is easy to use, fast and visual

In our opinion the Wedge process data analysis system is easy to use, fast and visual. In this system it is also possible to easily combine data from different sources. There are powerful and extensive analysis tools in the Wedge,” says Production Technology Director Mr. Tommy Lindgren from Paroc´s Base Division.

“It is also important that time shift compensations inside the process are easy to make for efficient analysis.”

Great cooperation

In the beginning of this project Wedge was presented to all plant managers in order to get people acquainted with the system. Paroc found this information and trial use important step before investment decision. User training and support in application development are important project phases.

The cooperation has been smooth and we have received all the help and support from Trimble we have needed,” says Lindgren.

Both Paroc and Trimble see great possibilities for extending the cooperation in the future.

“We think there is a great potential in Wedge to be used also in monitoring other things such as energy efficiency.”
