Placoplatre optimizes its production with intelligent video

Thanks to Axis network video, Placoplatre can instantly detect incidents on its production line

“Choosing an IP system meant looking at the requirements and quality we wanted to achieve with our process automation and with our production line upgrade at the site.“ M. Cordoba, Project Head at Placoplatre.


Placoplatre is the leading French company in plasterbased products and is part of the Saint Gobain group. This plaster and PSE insulation specialist (plaster, insulation, floor tiles) currently has 20 production sites in France. After upgrading its production line at the Chambéry plant, Placoplatre set out to optimize the production line's video surveillance system, in particular by improving the detection of production incidents.


France Télécom was consulted on this project and recommended upgrading the analog camera system to a system with 21 additional cameras and automatic production incident detection.


In addition to improving the image quality and ease of use of the new system, Placoplatre has been able to significantly reduce intervention time when production incidents occur.
