Process control technology

Making complex things simple

LUX Automation offers innovative process automation. Whether it’s for the metal or automotive industry or intralogistics: we match our automation technology to your processes and requirements. With vision, foresight and many years of experience, LUX Automation is your partner for intelligent process automation.


Industrial IT

In the field of industrial IT, LUX Automation optimizes your control systems along the entire production. You benefit from maximum transparency and efficiency and the highest level of user-friendliness.

With our industrial IT Solutions, you can control and monitor your industrial plants centrally and thus make your production processes more efficient. Benefit from our extensive experience with application-specific Level 2 software for control systems. The modular structure and modern development tools ensure the best results in the shortest possible time. With optimized control systems in the area of industrial IT, you will increase efficiency and consistency along your entire value chain.

As a specialist with decades of experience in automation solutions, we offer our customers integrated solutions for a wide range of requirements in the field of central control of industrial plants, including:

  • As-is analysis and creation of specification and requirement documents
  • Application based on the LUX PRODAVIS framework
  • Implementation, installation and commissioning (with parallel operation if necessary)
  • Training and instruction
  • Optimization after acceptance
  • Service and maintenance

From level 0 to level 2.5, our specialists can implement a wide range of applications. From one source. Under one roof. In most projects, we integrate our solutions into existing, often extremely heterogeneous DP landscapes. We have developed our own framework for this purpose: PRODAVIS. We have been using this framework in industry for more than 25 years. The demand for this successful industrial IT tool is evident from the fact that the fourth generation is already in use, in the form of PRODAVIS Industry 4.0 MES. PRODAVIS is our basis for delivering your projects.


Core modules are used to control inter-process communication, including with higher-level, lower-level and secondary systems. Our application modules are based on this. They represent a wide variety of solutions: from melting plants to shipping, from planning to control of internal transport, as information and control systems, as classic material tracking or warehouse management, and last but not least as a dashboard for displaying operational information. All together. For a wide variety of roles. For one plant or across the board.

    Application-based information and control

    LUX Automation offers application-based control systems and control system development for the entire value chain in the metals, automotive and logistics sectors. The tried and tested LUX PRODAVIS framework provides you with all the components you need for this. Our common HMI solution with WinCC was created specifically for the metal and logistics industries, just as our ArchestrA solutions from AVEVA Solutions (formerly Wonderware Solutions) have been designed specifically for the automotive sector.

    Batch and material tracking

    The increasing complexity of modern industrial plants requires a perfect overview of all production processes. Our IT solutions provide you with real-time information and the current status of your plant in relation to each material unit and assembly. They also allow you to track all recorded production parameters to increase output. Through integrated cut optimization, for example.

    Event-driven KPI calculation and consistent evaluation and documentation of the data provide you with the basis for further optimization. With our software solution, you can always access an overview of the current status of your plant on a mobile device (IOS, Android).

    Acquisition, management, calculation and display of process information in real time and storage of large volumes of data require a powerful program infrastructure. LUX PRODAVIS provides that.

    What are your requirements? Do you need more than 100 users at the same time, more than 50,000 signals per second, 4 gigabytes of data per day, 60 connected PLCs or more than 800 formulas? Is the use of standard operating systems (Windows), databases and computers a prerequisite? Then the LUX PRODAVIS framework with its functional modules for material and batch tracking is the right choice. It allows you to set up applications for your production facilities, such as melting plants, coil and strip processing lines, section rolling mills, etc.

    Common HMI solutions

    LUX Automation offers common HMI solutions for control systems with a large number of HMI screens. Would you like to integrate additional database dialogs and tables into your HMI screens? Here, too, the common HMI solution from LUX Automation is the right choice. There is no need to change the interface or the program and you can operate all the necessary functions with ease. Screens are displayed using WinCC and dialogs with .NET and WPF.
