Advanced Graphical-Display PLC Feed-Line ControlJuly 21, 2021
Dallas Industries will feature its new interactive and advanced graphical display control for its press-feed lines, as well as a small conventional feed line, in a shared booth with Aida-America. The new 15-in. graphical display is designed to maximize productivity during startup and into production by providing an HMI touch and diagnostic screen for the entire feed line. The intuitive and easy-to-follow graphical format duplicates the machine in operation and, say company officials, can reduce launch and setup time, minimize changeover time and assist production by providing real-time diagnostics.
Booth visitors also will learn how to achieve smoother feed motion through the Dallas ProfileSelect software, which uses a sinusoidal profile (cam motion) that minimizes stress on the material and mechanics. Also on display: SyncLoop controls that synchronize feeder and straightener speeds to enhance loop stability and provide for smooth loop handling; and AutoSet controls, which automatically adjust passline height, edge guides and coil guides.
