Rubber extrusion line in China
Our task was to activate the line extruding the thread of tyres for KraussMaffei Bersdorf trucks in the emerging tyre factory in China. In the course of a half a year contract we carried out a successful commissioning of automation system, i.e.: software development, I/O tests, corrections of electrical installations, configurations and tunning of the drives and PID loops, as well as start-ups of safety systems.
The control system was based on Allen-Bradley hardware: 3 ControlLogix modules, panels PanelView Plus CE, more than 50 PowerFlex 700/70EC drives, Ethernet/IP architecture and PointIO modules – approximately 3000 I/O modules, AC drives from Control Techniques with power capacity up to 600kW.
