Advanced PLC Controls

Our newest PLC controls offer multiple advanced features to significantly reduce the time required to commission new press feeding lines.  New loop and press simulation capabilities enable us to test, debug, and perform a complete startup of your line prior to shipping, decreasing setup time on your floor by half or more. 

PLC Controls Specifications

  • Loop Simulation – emulates material to see how straightener reacts to changes from the feed
  • Press Simulation – simulates press with SPM changes, feed angles, pilot, start feed, press at the bottom, etc.
  • On the Fly – automatically changes speed of the feed to adapt to press
  • Direct Speed Enable – straightener automatically hits target speed at the first stroke
  • Work Roll Simulation – visual guide to help operators see what’s happening inside the straightener
  • Work Roll Advisor – automates straightener setup
  • Feed Advisor – automated feed setup
  • Smart Speed –automatically adjusts to optimal line speed based on press speed and feed window (requires ethernet connection with press)
  • Ethernet Diagnostics – allows operators to see in real time any connection failures between devices
  • Pictorial Main Menus – operators can easily navigate to machine specific control screens by selecting an image of the machine they wish to operate
