APT (Application Technology)Division develops, tests and implements the software and finally carries out a start-up on the production line.

It comprises the following units

PLC – responsible for securing the station and interfacing external devices, conveyors and robots. A PLC functions as a superordinate layer of the station;

SCADA – dealing with the virtualisation of the station to allow for manual control. The SCADA system records and stores alarms and the station's statistical data. Wonderware InTouch and Zenon are the two most commonly used software applications;

Robotics – responsible for determining the robot paths and parameters of the material being applied;

RPC (Robot and Process Control) – software responsible for processes carried out by painting robots. It controls parameters such as paint pressure, voltage used to ionise the paint, air used to atomise the paint and atomiser rotational speed. Programming is carried out in KEBA's IEC environment. The software is implemented on industrial computers supplied by KEBA. The Windows Embedded operating system with RTX (real time extension) is used to guarantee the determinism of operation. KeControl dedicated software is used to control the robots. The controllers can work in three types of industrial networks: Ethernet to communicate with the virtualisation system, ProfiNet to communicate with the PLC and Sercos III to communicate with the robot's periphery devices.
