Honeywell (NYSE:HON) today announced the appointment of 10 system integrators in Germany to sell and support the Honeywell Experion LS process control system for small to medium-sized manufacturers. The integrators will help Honeywell expand its presence into industries that require a combination of loop, logic and batch automation, such as specialty chemicals, secondary pharmaceuticals and food and beverage, the company said on Jan. 12.

The system integrators were selected for their engineering expertise and capabilities, geographic coverage and synergy with Honeywell's business development program.

The system integrators, by name and location, are:

- Actemium Controlmatic, Frankfurt;

- Ako-Tec, Euskirchen;

- cts, Burgkirchen;

- EMP, Leverkusen;

- Indurest (SPC), Wesseling;

- Kiel Engineering, Oberhausen;

- LeiKon, Herzogenrath;

- Rösberg Engineering, Karlsruhe;

- SpiraTec, Speyer; and

- Stadler+Schaaf, Offenbach.

Honeywell describes its Experion LS as a small, flexible process control system, of the Honeywell Experion Process Knowledge System line. It is designed to manage process control and optimize batch and sequence-oriented applications. Scalable from one PC and controller to multiple stations, Experion LS is suited for smaller production facilities, Honeywell sayd, because it allows manufacturers to better respond to market needs and changes while offering robust process and batch control features. With Experion LS, plant operators can more quickly and easily modify batch recipes and boost production, and, because it requires less engineering effort to configure and is easier to maintain than a PLC or large DCS, Experion LS can help manufacturers save up to€15,000 per year in support per system, Honeywell said.

Selection of the system integrators will improve Honeywell's efforts to sell process control systems to small and medium-sized companies in batch industries, said Elgonda la Grange, regional general manager, Northern Europe, Honeywell Process Solutions. The system integrators also will benefit from Honeywell's expertise, la Grange added.

Honeywell has a training program and provides the system integrators access to information including product and application know-how, and industry-leading expertise in process control.

Automation integrator contact information is available in the Control Engineering Automation Integrator Guide .

Annual Salary Survey

Before the calendar turned, 2016 already had the makings of a pivotal year for manufacturing, and for the world.

There were the big events for the year, including the United States as Partner Country at Hannover Messe in April and the 2016 International Manufacturing Technology Show in Chicago in September. There's also the matter of the U.S. presidential elections in November, which promise to shape policy in manufacturing for years to come.

But the year started with global economic turmoil, as a slowdown in Chinese manufacturing triggered a worldwide stock hiccup that sent values plummeting. The continued plunge in world oil prices has resulted in a slowdown in exploration and, by extension, the manufacture of exploration equipment.
