Heye International -advantages of process visualisation

Post Time:Jan 28,2021Classify:Company NewsView:1035

Ardagh Group’s Knottingley glass container facility in the UK is benefiting from the recent conversion of an existing production line to Simotion®, a registered trademark of Siemens, servo drive and FMT control technology.

Installed and commissioned by production machinery specialist Heye International, the highly flexible control system is based on the multi axis Simotion® drive system from Siemens.

Independently operating visualisation and real-time control is enabled delivering simplified access to all production data parameters and system error reports. Enhanced reliability of the electronic components in combination with the application of a compact servo motor with robust resolver guarantee resilient, non-stop operation.

If control components need to be changed, complicated programming is not necessary because the configuration data is stored on a memory board. When control is initiated, data is automatically transferred. Hence, commissioning times and downtimes during servicing are minimised, whilst the staff training requirements are reduced.

As part of the project, retrofitting the Simotion® and FMT control equipment was combined with a series of advanced glass container production technologies from Heye.
