Photo 4 | JST large display wall cladding: On the left behind the large display wall cladding is the door to the technical room. The photo shows the AmbientLight - shown here in orange; the colours can be freely selected according to taste.
Photo 5 | JST Operator workstations: Visually and technically a successful solution: the special operator desks in front of the large display wall.
Photo 6 | JST control room: Special highlight for guests at Spenner Zement: The entrance offers rare insights into the ultra-modern control center.
Photo 7 | JST workstations: With its own display wall already planned for the future: an engineering workstation for programmers, which can also serve as a reserve for possible new installations.
Photo 8 | JST Operator Desk: By means of infinitely variable electromotive height adjustment, the worktables can be adapted to the operator's needs; for example, switching between sitting and standing to relieve back strain.
Photo 9 | JST MultiConsoling®: The myGUI surface - shown here on the middle screen - serves as the user interface for the MultiConsoling®. Advantage of this technology: Computer signals with keyboard, video, mouse, audio signals and cameras are flexibly displayed on the monitors at the workplace or on the large screen wall.
Photo 10 | JST Displays: Thanks to the movable display rack, the two 46-inch displays can be flexibly rolled back and forth in the room to set the optimum distance to the operator.
Photo 11 | JST furnishing - thought-out down to the last detail: individualisations, such as here the Spenner cement lettering on the headrest of the operator chairs, are also among the many possibilities offered by JST.
Photo 12 | JST Operator desk: Offer a perfect look thanks to generously proportioned utility rooms: The Stratos X11 series desks allow cleanly installed technology without visible cables.

"Gates opened to progress"
It was a long way from the old mosaic picture technique up to the representation of all processes on the modern large display wall. With the support of the experts from Jungmann Systemtechnik, the Spenner Zement company has opened the door to technical progress in control technology. Four decentralised operating and control centers were combined in a modern control center at the company headquarters in Erwitte, North Rhine-Westphalia.
Where buttons used to be pressed and controls moved, plant operators today have to process a veritable flood of information. They are confronted with a constantly growing number of digital control technologies . A project team from Spenner has joined forces with the Jungmann specialists in order to provide the employees with a better visualisation and a faster acquisition of all relevant data. The result is a control room perfectly tailored to the company, whose technological innovations convince not only the management but also the employees.
The Spenner team became aware of Jungmann Systemtechnik via internet search engines. After an initial meeting with the JST consultants, it was already clear to Dr. Heinrich Sievers, Head of Production at Spenner Zement, that “this could suit us”. Sievers: “The whole package was simply coherent, and we also really liked the commitment of the Jungmann employees.
The necessary configurations were worked out in joint project meetings and the employees at the Erwitte plant were also informed about the concept of the project via a clear 3-D planning. After all, they are the ones working with the new technology today. “The production controllers are coping well with the new plant,” says Markus Falkenstein, member of the Spenner project team and deputy production manager for clinker production. His conclusion: “The nice thing about the large display wall is that you can show the complete plant on it: from the raw mill at the beginning, through the fuels, to the rotary kiln. And all this without complicated switching.”
According to project manager Heinrich Sievers, models of all processes as well as various camera images, e.g. for monitoring conveyor belt routes, are displayed on the large display wall. “This medium is used optimally,” says Sievers, who gives the entire project the grade “completely successful and pleasing”.
