Automation and Drives SIMOTION in the glass industry SIMOTION References OEM Individual section machine to produce glass containers Machines Back Automation and Drives Summary SIMOTION References Machine: Sklostroj I.S. glass forming machine Sector: Glass industry Products: SIMOTION D and SINAMICS S120, SIMOTION C , PROFIBUS DP, Industrial Ethernet As trendsetter in the glass industry, Sklostroj is replacing mechanical motion couplings and user-specific open-loop control and closed-loop control technology by standardized mechatronic solutions. SIMOTION combines servocontrol for 49 axes, electronic cam Back controller (E-Timer) with over 500 I/Os in one system and ensures that bottles transported using the servo-pusher are not damaged and there is smooth transfer. Automation and Drives Company profile SIMOTION References www.sklostroj.cz Company HQ: Přepeřská 210, 511 01 Turnov, Czech Republic Profile: Sklostroj, was founded in 1950 and has been under new management since 1994. It specializes in the mechanical design and construction of machines that produce glass containers in glass plants around the world. Individual machine components are produced as well as complete production lines with up to 16 Back stations in parallel. Their quality management system is certified in compliance with ISO 9001-2000. Automation and Drives Requirements on the SIMOTION solution SIMOTION References I.S. glass forming machine Machine Requirements: High production rate, continuous duty and ruggedness High-precision motion control and reproducibility Units must be precisely synchronized at the hot end: Uniform drop formation of the plunger, high dynamic and precise operation of the Back shears, reliable supply to all sections through the drop distributor, blowing the containers in the sections up to synchronized removal of the bottles Automation and Drives Automation solution SIMOTION References Machine Control: SIMOTION D435 (electronic cam controller) for the motion control open-loop control and technological tasks; SIMOTION C (3-axis pusher) for analog stepping motors Drive: SINAMICS S120 with Active Line for increased Back availability Communications:PROFIBUS-DP and Industrial Ethernet HMI: SIMATIC WinCC and mobile client via WLAN switch Scalance W Automation and Drives Customer benefits SIMOTION References Machine This mechatronic high-performance motion control solution utilizing SIMOTION and SINAMICS S120 offer the following advantages: Optimum plant availability and productivity under extreme ambient conditions Reduced wear of units 49 axes or more are precisely synchronized with reproducibility in the range of microseconds Back Open interfaces, seamless integration High degree of reproducibility and process value archive open- up new potential for optimizing machine use Automation and Drives Facts that convince! SIMOTION References www.sklostroj.cz Rolf Themann M.B.A.: (Technical Director of Sklostroj) “We use the drive-based SIMOTION D435 system in all sections as axis control and E-Timer. This compact design is especially attractive to us as the control board is directly integrated in the SINAMICS S120 Back drive and essentially in the background controls the complete distributed I/O in realtime.”
