Project Synopsis

Up-gradation of drives and control system for Dual Extruder Line. This line is continuous feed extruder line.
Earlier system was working with relay logic and hardwired temperature controller units for extruders zones.
The System is retrofitted with S7-300 PLC WinCC to convert it into a modern control system. MP270 is used as the field operator device. All drive synchronization parameters are configurable from WinCC.
DC Drives for both extruders, Drive for Calendar rolls and AC Drives for conveyors are all controlled on Profibus.

The scope of work included:

  • Design & supply of control systems and cabinets.
  • Software development.
  • Commissioning.
