SyncroSpeed is the most effective energy-saving technology an injection moulder can buy. Systems are installed on all popular brands of injection moulding machines, reliably delivering reductions in motor power consumption from 25% - 55%
SyncroSpeed is a retrofit control system installed on injection molding machines (IMMs); its purpose is to improve the machine’s operating energy efficiency. The system includes a variable frequency drive (VFD or inverter) which is used to regulate the speed of the pump motors. Controlled in the correct way, reducing motor speed can result in a considerable reduction in motor power consumption while at the same time maintaining full productivity (cycle time) and process consistency (part quality); this is what SyncroSpeed does.
The most common industrial control system is based around a PLC based controller, usually of modular construction with dedicated modules for specific tasks, tailored PLC systems can be assembled to carry out complex and varied tasks. Axis control modules are usually available to integrate motion control modules into PLC racks, providing control of servo systems from within the PLC Ladder diagram programming language. Integrated safety functionality is available in medium and larger platforms to handle emergency stop, guarding and safety devices used on a machine.
Motion controller based systems are ideal where high performance positioning or movement by AC servo systems is required for machinery, but have limited requirement to control conveyors, fixturing and interface with other equipment. Robotics, machine tools and high speed packaging equipment often use motion controllers which offer axis interpolation, complex motion profiles and cam functions for multiple axis machinery.
PC based control systems are suited to applications where either data acquisition or large amounts of data are to be stored or recorded in the form of databases. We develop PC based applications using National Instruments Labview which provide excellent graphics and connectivity to databases and programmable controllers. We also develop machine control systems using TwinCat soft PLC which offer deterministic functionality with motion controller capabilities and advanced functionality for networking and remote access.
CCS Technology was established in 1988 and design and manufacture specialist control systems for industrial plant, machinery and equipment. With full ISO 9001:2008 for the design, manufacture and software for Control Systems and machinery, we work with machine builders and machinery end users, providing individual engineering services or a complete turnkey control system solution.
