Control system for flying saw for paper tubes.

One of our customers, a manufacturing company in paper sector, was fully modernizing their flying saw for cutting cardboard tubes. Our task was to design a control system from a scratch – program and launch it on the modernized device. Our task included, in particular, the following: Selection of servo-drives for mandrel drive and a cutting trolley – in the scope of their achievable dynamics. Selection of a frequency inverter paper winding drums’ drive. Performance of an electric design. Prefabrication of a control and supply cabinet. Analysis of operational safety of winding and sleeve cutting system – included in the delivery of components. Preparation of a control program and the system operation visualization. Connection of a control system on the machine. System start-up and acceptances with the user. A set of documentation (manuals, schemes, declarations of conformity for the control cabinet). The system was made with the use of the following: PLC controller by LENZE series 3200C integrated with a motion controller. Components of production safety system by Allen-Bradley. Selection of servo-drives and frequency inverter, system based on sub-assemblies by LENZE. Operator panel with 7” diagonal P300 by LENZE. Other drives controlled by sub-assemblies by EATON: gluing unit and unwinder reverse operation, wrapper drive start/stop operation. Module instrumentation by EATON.
