Achieving a customized converting solution with a minimum of effort
Meeting complex requirements with ease
IEver-increasing production speeds, maximum availability and flexibility, optimal product quality and minimal lifecycle costs – the demands placed on the converting industry are immense. For this reason innovative automation concepts are needed that are perfectly adapted to the industry's requirements which you as a machine builder can implement quickly, simply and reliably. It's already a reality, thanks to the Digital Enterprise solution portfolio.
Integrated converting solutions from a single sourceWhether winders, cross cutters, flying saws and much more – we can provide you with an extensive range of automation and drive solutions for any type of machine to ensure first-class processing of continuous material webs. High-performance converting machines can be realized quickly and reliably with standard components on the basis of three platforms: SIMATIC, SIMOTION and SINAMICS.
You want functional solutions that significantly reduce your engineering effort? The Converting Toolbox is a standardized automation package that we have put together especially for you. You can count on on completely functional solutions and tried-and-tested know-how – perfectly documented and pre-tested. Ready-made software functions and applications simplify applications for the processing of continuous material webs.
You can select your preferred hardware platform depending on your application-focus
- The SIMOTION high-end motion control system is available for drive-controller-based applications.
- For PLC-based applications, standard or technology CPUs of the SIMATIC S7-1500 Advanced Controller family are available.
- Drive-related converting functions are executed directly on the controller board of the SINAMICS S120 drive system.
With Industrial Edge you can use the intelligence and scalability of the cloud directly in your production - simply, performant and without your data leaving production.
Fast Fourier Transform (FFT) analysis helps to identify process errors automatically. Via frequency analysis and the comparison of frequencies with a reference list containing the mechanical data of all the machine components the element causing the failure can be automatically identified with Industrial Edge.
