Ireland's leading distillery automation solutions provider
Why trust our distillery automation solutions?
Our clients are global brands recognised around the world, they have trusted us with their automation needs and service level agreements and we are 100% sure they would provide positive feedback. As Ireland’s leading systems provider we have successfully delivered large scale projects for those clients across Ireland and Europe. We understand that the spirits you produce are premium products exported across the world that requires 100% repeatable, consistent production in order to maintain your customer loyalty and brand image. Whether it’s designing a system for a startup distillery or upgrading a legacy system we have been there and done it. Our experienced distillery engineering team can help you automate your processes from grain to glass.
Rockbrook are a Siemens Food and Beverage Solution Partner and as such have access to the most up to date technologies within the industry. Rest assured our automation solutions will help you produce consistent, repeatable results within your distillery that will free you up to focus on other important areas of your business.
We never design for today, we always design for tomorrow by future proofing everything we implement. It is very important to us that today’s shiny new automated system isn’t tomorrow’s ageing headache. We only use open protocol fully supportable SCADA and PLC’s with defined future migration paths.
We have been in business over 18 years and deliver world class service level agreements 24/7, 365 days a year to a number of distilleries. From dialling in remotely to delivering boots on the ground quickly our custom SLA’s are designed to put your mind at rest and ensure your distillery is in safe hands.
From small craft distilleries to larger operations producing millions of cases per year our approach is the same. The first step is always to evaluate and understand your current processes. Our engineering team will then clearly and concisely design the most appropriate automation solution based on your specific needs.
SCADA + HMI
People are visual and as such we design our SCADA and HMI terminals to be user friendly and easy to understand. Thanks to our in-house audio visual and graphics team we can design features to suit each client’s individual needs. Using our predeveloped libraries of distillery specific templates and objects allows us to reduce the development time.
We are PLC experts well used to coding, designing intuitive user menus and integrating sensors and controllers into your processes. We have developed our own in-house PLC sequencers and batch controls which results in reduced engineering costs to the client.
Testing + Commissioning
We take a step-by-step approach starting with offline system testing and eventually moving to full production testing of actual product. All our software and hardware is rigorously tested and validated to the fullest extent possible to ensure everything is working is it should be before we sign off on the system.
real time reporting
No system is complete without reporting functionality that allows you monitor your process in real time and make adjustments if necessary. We can custom design the reports you need and display them in a user-friendly way. Even better they can be accessed and viewed remotely over a secure network.
We set time aside to ensure you and your staff are fully trained on the system. It’s in your interests and ours to make sure the systems, processes and reports are fully understood, easy to use and acted on correctly. It avoids frustration and unnecessary call outs. Our aim is to be on site only when you really need us.
Every project is a partnership between you and us. Once your new system is installed we will always be there for you when you need help. We can provide any level of SLA you require, from basic ad hoc call outs to customised 24/7 365 days a year service level agreements.
