Heye International’s Simotion Servodrive Compact upgrade kits provide a cost-effective solution to match these requirements.
An easy way to keep pace with rising efficiency pressures is to modernize a glass factory’s manufacturing equipment. Often, mechanical parts are still in good condition, whereas the electronics are out-of-date. Invariably, this results in long downtimes, especially in instances where spare parts are no longer available. The solution is Heye Simotion® Servodrive, a highly flexible control concept, based on the future-proof multi axis System Simotion® from Siemens.
The Heye Simotion® upgrade package comes complete with servo motor, servo inverter, cables and control panel, depending on the specific mechanism. This technology is used increasingly to upgrade such equipment as feeder stirrers and plungers, dual motor shears, gob distributors, machine conveyors, ware transfers, cross conveyors and lehr loaders.
Key benefits include:
- Good usability through visualization with simplified parameter setting.
- Shorter job change times.
- Reduced downtimes through the fast replacement of parts and easy configuration data saved on memory cards.
- The use of standard components to reduce spare parts stocks.
Upgrade kits are available for many existing systems. Their modular design allows a simple and cost saving upgrade of existing systems. Contact Heye experts for help with the preparation of tailor-made solutions!
