Universal gravimetric batch blender control based on a Siemens PLC

From Bolder automation a Simatic S7-1500 is designed for the process control of about all gravimetric batch blenders in the market. The PLC can be offered as a package for OEMs or as a complete solution together with Gravimix blenders from Ferlin.

The Siemens PLC in combination with an excellent software application offers a lot of advantages against a discrete solution. For example:

* The application can be designed customised
* Spare parts are available worldwide
* Service can use remote control (e.g. Sinema remote connect)

On the show we present:

* A smart user-interface with diagnostics and process optimization
* Recipe management locally and via network
* Traceability of each and every batch
* System integration of batch blenders in a co-extrusion line including material feeding

Future Perspectives & Global Challenges:
Resource Efficiency

Product category: Gravimetric dosing and metering equipment

GraviSys-g/m control of extrusions lines

Closed-loop weight-per-meter control has been used in blown film lines for many years. Many existing systems are getting on in years and are no longer state-of-the-art. Resultant electronics malfunctions, control problems and substandard performance cause frequent headaches for production operations.
There is a solution available. We can refurbish single components or retrofit your entire system if required by the problems at hand. The core elements of our systems are the Siemens PLC S7-1200 and the GraviProfi 2408. Our systems are compatible with all weigh hopper makes equipped with strain-gauge load cells. For systems requiring new weigh hoppers, we offer our BTW weigh hoppers with outstanding overload protection.
Our PLC systems and HMI panels can be personalized in accordance with users' specific requirements. Host PC's with Siemens WinCC visualization software can be used to provide up-to-the-minute data overviews for all production lines, a highly valuable tool for production managers.

Extruder throughput control quite simply

The implementation of a LIW system with GraviMaster 2408ex provides a very simple operation of an extruder in combination with excellent product quality.

Operation:
* set-up of throughput set-point
* start-up of extruder to desired speed
->
* GM 2408ex is going to switch to automatic mode when in tolerance
-->
+ no adjustments of the extruder
+ constant output even on variable temperature
+ reduced load on the operator
