Controls description:

Allen Bradley based controls. Low speeds usually under 300 packages per minute will use the Compact Logix controller. High speeds usually over 300 packages per minute will use the control Logix PLC. There may be conditions at low speeds were control Logix may be used, that will be determined by engineering and the customer requirement. The controls use ethernet to communicate between the components. A touchscreen for Humane Machine Interface is also connected to the ethernet switch. The HMI will allow personnel to troubleshoot and adjust the machine. The controller will have a modern software package installed. The software can be adjusted on site to accommodate the needs and requirements of the customer.

Installation Description:

Remove existing motors, gearboxes, cables, electrical panels, and any mechanical or electrical component that will not be used with the upgrade. Install preassembled electrical panels, motors and gear boxes. Install all input and output peripherals. Wire everything to electrical prints that are provided with upgrade. Install all operator interface components. Power up machinery, debug, setup parameters, and run onsite acceptance test. It takes 4-6 weeks to assemble all panels and sub-assemblies at our facility. The customer can run their machine until the install date. We will ship everything to the site and do the installation right there in 3-5 days.
