This rewinder slitter control panel was designed and built for Steadfast Machinery.
The system replaced an ageing Titan 5 control desk, and uses the very latest Parker 890 common bus closed loop vector drives.
The machine control is handled by an Omron CJ2 PLC, which also controls the pneumatic tension system on the unwind and rewind bars.
We used an Omron NS8 touchscreen as the main operator interface.
A Pilz PNOZ safety system was incorporated, for Emergency stop, guard switch, and rope switch safety monitoring.
We used a Sick UM30 digital ultrasonic sensor to provide diameter feedback to the PLC and both top and bottom rewind drives.
Axis Controls also supplied the three closed loop AC vector motors, with Sick programmable encoders.
