Applications

  • Process Optimization - Improved system performance by providing dynamic, continuous monitoring, automatic control strategy formulation and responsive control using software algorithms, resulting in reduced operating costs and compliance with regulatory standards.
  • Reduced Downtime - Minimization of production downtime by providing practically maintenance free solutions achieved by means of eliminating mechanical shafts and gears.
  • Open Information Access - Access of data collected by the SCADA system to other administrative and engineering applications such as GIS, CAD, maintenance management, etc., thereby enhancing production and engineering management.

Advantages of Servo Technology for the end user:

  • Easier to apply standards.
  • Reduced capital and operating costs.
  • Reduced spare parts inventory.
  • Reduced maintenance.
  • Higher degree of reliability due to drive accuracy and repeatability.
  • Improved machine diagnostics.
  • Improved machine flexibility for alternate product sizes.

Side by side comparison between mechanical and electronic machines found that the new technology dramatically impacted packaging line performance:

  • Greater than 10% improvement in equipment performance.
  • 75% reduction in changeover time (based on recent installation).
  • 60% averaged reduction in required maintenance.
  • 40% improvement in recovery time when jams occurred.
  • Most trouble shooting done at operator level (reduced nuisance calls).
