Sustainability Impulses for the Processing

by editorial staff WORLD OF INDUSTRIES

PC-based control, the PC- and EtherCAT-based control and drive technology from Beckhoff, offers great potential for making machines and systems for the plastics processing industry work more sustainably.

The TwinCAT 3 Plastic Framework enables integration of hydraulic and electric drive technology, providing a modular control system for plastics machinery that minimizes development work. What’s more, Euromap/OPC UA can also be integrated with ease. The sample code included as standard for various plastics applications, such as injection molding, blow molding, and extrusion, simplifies project planning and programming. Since all common Euromap interfaces are supported, users are able to adopt a standardized approach to exchanging data both between individual machines and to the higher-level MES. In addition, process data can be aggregated synchronously with the machine cycle using the TwinCAT Analytics data analysis tool. With an extensive portfolio of I/O terminals, Beckhoff also integrates the measurement technology required for energy monitoring into its standard control technology. Dynamic and high-precision servo drive technology from Beckhoff opens up further possibilities for saving energy and conserving resources in plastics processing.
