Servo motion control
This machine required a full retro fit since its previous control system was out dated and had no spare parts and was starting to fail. This machine was vital to feeding primary product to the production lines for the paper industry
BDM Electrical Service used an Allen Bradley compact logix L43 PLC for this project. In addition we used three Ultra 3000 Allen Bradley servo amplifiers, Serco fibre-optic communication, panel view plus a 700-colour touch HMI screen. Servo motors, toothed belts and pulleys, were also supplied. Other features include the ability to store 200 programs with 100 steps using 3 servomotors: hydraulic, pneumatic, and VSD on each step during its cycle. This machine enables accurate positioning and category 3 safety; including light certain guard switches and removable front consol for easy programming. An operator can sit down and program this machine.
