White Paper Netzwerksicherheit im
Industriellen Umfeld 

Ein praxisnaher Leitfaden zur Netzwerksicherheit im industriellen Umfeld. Es werden nur ausgewählte, in der OT-Umgebung praxiserprobte Mechanismen vorgestellt. Eine sorgfältige Konzeptionierung und Planung des physikalischen Netzes und der Sicherheitsmechanismen sind entscheidend für die spätere Netzsicherheit und Verfügbarkeit der Anlageninfrastruktur. Kriko unterstützt im gesamten Prozess von der Beratung über die Planung, bis hin zur Umsetzung.

Of course, there will also be a lot of interesting news in our KRIS³ in 2020. Turning huge amounts of data into valuable information is a real challenge. Many companies are still at the very beginning of tapping into the enormous data potential. The new Cockpit app from KRIS³ takes you a big step further. Because it is able to bring together ERP and automation data to transparently display and analyse large amounts of data.

In order to achieve fast changeover times and safe product changeovers, KRIS³ offers recipe management with which you can bring more standardisation, efficiency and safety into your production. As the central platform for your production, KRIS³ recipe management can communicate with both the control level and the company level to ERP systems to achieve a continuous and automated workflow.

With the new maintenance contract, it is now easier than ever to always be up to date with KRIS³. As it is our goal to keep all customers up to date, we offer our existing customers a discounted entry into the maintenance contract. This means that they automatically and continuously benefit from the latest developments and comprehensive support. And for new customers, we are now offering KRIS³ for sale as part of a three-year maintenance contract. If you do not extend the maintenance contract, you can still continue to use KRIS³ indefinitely. We will be happy to inform you about the various options.

Migration auf PCS 7 Version 9 mit Siemens SIPAPER MMA und DCS „Classic“

Die Zeiten ändern sich natürlich auch hinsichtlich von Software, wo es regelmäßig nach einer gewissen Zeit zum Generationswechsel kommt. Mit dem Siemens Prozessleitsystem PCS 7 - Version 9 ist auch eine neue Generation von Betriebssystemen verbunden, die eine Weiterentwicklung der Bibliotheken erforderlich machte. 32-Bit Betriebssysteme gehören der Vergangenheit an, und damit auch einige bewährte PCS 7 -Bibliotheken, wie z.B. die vielfach eingesetzten SIPAPER Bibliotheken aus dem Hause Siemens.

KRIKO ist bekannt dafür, intelligente Lösungen zu kreieren. Deshalb bieten wir Ihnen die Möglichkeit, den bestehenden Siemens SIPAPER AS-Bausteinen ein neues und dem technischen Stand entsprechendes Gesicht zu geben. Mit der APL-Bibliothek als Vorbild sind neue Faceplates für die SIPAPER „Classic“ Bibliothek entstanden, die Ihnen eine kostengünstige und risikoarme Migration Ihrer Anlage auf die PCS 7 Version 9 ermöglichen. Die Vorteile der Lösung sprechen für sich: es sind nur geringe Anpassungen an der Software notwendig, der Inbetriebnahmeaufwand wird durch unveränderte AS-Programme minimiert, die offenen und nicht kopiergeschützten Faceplates sind mit allen SIPAPER Bibliotheken kombinierbar und zukunftssicher durch die Verwendung von Standardmitteln.



KRIKO has long been known for the modernisation of multi-motor drives. Paper machines, support roll and back-up roll winders, rolling mills and processing machines for paper and aluminium, such as drying plants and coating plants, have been an integral part of our wide range of activities for years. As with all other machines, however, the electronics of cross-cutters also reach the end of their life cycle at some point. Techniques that were still up to date 20 years ago present service technicians with problems that are difficult to solve today. Spare parts are often no longer available. Connections to modern MES/ERP systems are impossible. Manufacturers and suppliers have disappeared from the market or experienced service technicians have retired. Service is sometimes provided from abroad, with the familiar problems such as language barriers or the different perceptions of service.

In order to spare our customers such problems in the future, we have taken up this challenge and can now provide references for the modernisation of sheeters, both for format adjustment via a crank drive and for state-of-the-art format adjustment with an electronic cam. Features such as multiple unwinding, inline cross-cutting, error tracking, error rejection and a fully automatic pallet change are of course also included. Not to forget the automatic longitudinal knife adjustment. Here, too, we can provide references for systems from different manufacturers.

In addition to the security of being able to continue operating your machine without any worries, our solution offers many additional advantages. Obvious are simple operation, clear and diverse diagnostic options as well as the comprehensible, structured and well-documented software. By dispensing with special components and using commercially available components from well-known manufacturers, repairs can be carried out without any problems even in a few years' time. And last but not least, of course, KRIKO's well-known good service also speaks in favour of our solution.
