Applications > Textil Machines
Because of long term cooperations with well-known companys such as Kleinewefers Textilmaschinen (also referred to as KTM), Ochtruper Textil Veredelung (also referred to as OTV) and Trigema we build up a major pool of experience especially in textile finishing.
Ochtruper Textil Veredelung
These two Pad Steam plants were parallel assembled and commisioned in Managua, Nicaragua.
Each machine is equipped with 24 main drives and 62 auxiliary drives. A consistent application of Profibus for the control of the drives and all sensors and actuators characterises these machines. This assembly provides us with the opportunity to get remote access to all components in case of a teleservice.
In the case of faults or defects it is possible to conduct a fault diagnosis from Germany. Furthermore of a newly built in inverter can be configured via modem for example. This ensures that the parameters adjusted during commissioning need not to be determined and adjusted again by the customer. This reduces downtime considerably.
Pad Batch switchgear
We developed and implemented a new control concept for pad batch systems in cooperation with the company KTM.
By applying this new technology a new kind of machine with a unified combination of mechanical, electrical and pneumatic parts was realized. This made manufacturing of standardised plants with modular components and a short startup time possible.
These plants were sold by KTM for many years. After the takeover by the Benninger AG this concept has been in principle adopted by Benninger and newly incorporated.
This bleaching machine used two old voltage regulating transformers for drive control. Then it has been rebuilt and equipped with modern drive control and digital control. Subsequently the Raco-Yet in front of the bleaching machine was modernised. The old S5 PLC was exchanged to a new S7 PLC.
A consistent application of Profibus for the control of the drives, and all sensors and actuators granted key benefits for start up and maintenance of this facility. For the visualisation we used WinCC by Siemens.
The stenter frame was modernised as well. The old S5 PLC was exchanged to a new S7 PLC and for the visualisation we used WinCC by Siemens.
This bleaching plant is equipped with complex spray lines to applicate the bleaching chemicals. The control prepares the necessary batches of chemicals. These batches are being pumped to spray lines and the PLC controls the amount of chemicals according to the cloth and the speed of the machine.
The dosing can either be controled by the operating panel at the machine, or typically from the parent computer. The PC keeps the recipes in a database and sends the desired recipes for activation to the PLC in cabinet.
This Pad Batch is equipped with several different PLCs. Each PLC has its own task and is linked to the PLC network. The PLC network is connected to a PC. The PC keeps the recipes in a database and sends the desired recipes for activation to the PLC network. Furthermore datas of consumption are stored on the PC.
Together the PC and the PLCs present one consistent control. These means combine a modular structure on the engeneering side and a centrally managed operation of the machine.
