The existing old machine control system was replaced by a system based on modern industrial controllers for harsh environments, and advanced sensors.
The following effect was obtained as a result of implementation of the system:
- improving the reliability of the machine work by applying modern microprocessor-based means of automation and as a consequence, reduced downtime of production equipment and consumption of energy resources through the fault of failures in an outdated control system;
- increasing the productivity of the machine by means of fast providing information about the current relative compression without the need to stop and measuring by other means (methods);
- the improved quality and competitiveness of produced goods by increasing the quality of the strip surface;
- more efficient use ejector and equipment by reducing the downtime of production equipment and consumption of energy resources through the fault of failures.
