Aluminium Line Cross cut

Aluminium cross-cut saws managing cut accuracies over 70m lengths. Squareness of the cut and accuracy are key components.

Operator interface to allow a wide range of functionality.

Scada Layout Recycling Plant South Africa  500x400 - Unique Innovation

Processing Plant

The nature of the plant required precise control and reliable technologies.

The main PLC system used was Emerson CPL410 with RSTi EP io, Cimplicity Scada with 150 tags and remote interface for connectivity and remote support.

The network used was Profinet to 24 off Lenze i550 series inverters. The Lenze i550 inverters provide an optimum solution for motor control for gas flow, pumps, conveyors, fans and rotational drums.

This system solution was significant due to extensive control and Scada knowledge by the implementation team.

Medical Doors scaled 500x400 - Unique Innovation

Door control for Medical Use

Precise and smooth control of heavy doors in a medical environment. Lenze servo control with high reduction low backlash geared units offered this solution with easy set-up as well as low noise and smooth operation.

Safety interlocks are part of the system solution. For remote support or assistance, this can be provided with SA Power Edge-Control.
