SyncMaster Integrated Controls for Coil Feed Lines


SyncMaster controls package for integrated coil feed lines allows operators to control many of the servo feed, straightener, and coil reel setups and functions from a single location. This ability to work from a single touchscreen increases efficiency and decreases the chance of error. The system includes a coil reel, a power straightener with an AC drive, and a PLC that controls the straightener and reel, and communicates with the servo feed. The servo feed has a touchscreen HMI that controls the feed and communicates via Ethernet with the straightener and reel. The controller features a user-friendly 5.7-in. VGA color touchscreen interface featuring a selectable scale for feed lengths, height, and edge guides. Additional capabilities include 400-job set memory, automatic speed compensation, fault display and history, and more.
