The Perfect Spool

The Perfect Spool

 

October 8th, 2012

Spooling (or winding) is the most effective way to provide convenient packaging for materials of exceptionally long length. Typically, material is fed from a large spool at a certain rate while a SmartMotor traverses the material back and forth to create the desired pattern.

For the "perfect spool", the winder traversing position should be electronically geared to the rotational velocity of the spool that the material's being wound onto. The SmartMotor uses a customizable electronic gearing dwell control to ensure the winding stays in the desired shape even as the diameter of the spool changes because of additional material wound onto the spool.

Why Use a SINAMICS servo pump?
Simple: Energy saving of up to 70%

Superior efficiency all along the line. This is the criterion when optimizing hydraulic injection molding and blow molding machines. In particular, this applies to all kinds of hydraulically driven axes on, for example, injection molding machines. In addition to the trend to design hydraulic machines completely or partially electrically, it is also advantageous to optimize the hydraulic units.

For this, Siemens provides a perfect approach with the new, highly dynamic SINAMICS servo pump. With an energy saving of up to 70%, your investment in the future will pay off within a very short time.

Reading Multiple Codes
Do you struggle with one of these applications?
*Multiple codes of the same symbology within one field of view
*Multiple codes of mixed symbologies within one field of view
*One or more codes on multiple sides to verify that codes match
*One or more codes on multiple sides to output both sides' read results as one

Reading more than one barcode at a time is challenging for many manufacturing and material handling engineers. In a new Expert Guide from Cognex: Multiple Code Reading Applications Made Easy, learn about how image-based technology solves these four applications with ease.

Tech Tip Automation Selection Tool

Tech Tip Automation Selection Tool

 

September 5th, 2012

TIA Selection Tool with extended scope of use.

The TIA Selection Tool helps you to choose the right products and components for your automation task, configure these and obtain a complete order list as a result. The order list is checked for errors and for compatibility of the configured products. The look and feel of the TIA Selection Tool user interface is based on the TIA Portal. Like the TIA Portal, it can be operated in either a guided portal view or in a comprehensive project view.
In addition to the products which were already available, S7-1200 and practically the entire distributed I/O can now be configured with version 1.5.

If you wish to download the TIA Selection Tool (as stand-alone version):

Tech Tip  Siemens 3-point Stepper Control

Tech Tip Siemens 3-point Stepper Control

 

September 5th, 2012

3-Point Stepper Control with SIMATIC S7-1200
For products: 6ES7211-1AD30-0XB0; 6ES7211-1AE31-0XB0; 6ES72

PROBLEM: The valve of a mixer tap shall be controlled according to a desired given temperature. A three-way mixing valve with valve actuator is used. The valve is digital controlled in both directions. This is referred to as a 3-point stepper control.
Varying the valve position can yield any mixing ratio of hot and cold entering water and so the water outlet temperature.

SOLUTION: For SIMATIC S7-1200 as of firmware V2.0, the development environment STEP 7 V11 provides the "PID_3Step" 3-point stepper control block.
