Making-up is the process of turning fabric into clothes or home textiles. The techniques involved include mechanical, thermal and hydrocutting, joining techniques like gluing and bonding, as well as ironing and folding – all of which require precise movements and continuous temperature control. B&R offers automation platforms that are especially suited to these needs:
B&R's extensive temperature control library with function blocks, PID controllers and HMI templates is perfectly suited to systems that require precise control of heating and cooling.
The library supports:
- Management of multiple temperature zones
- Storage space for large amounts of data
And of course complete integration into the system goes without saying.
Safe motion control
Ensuring maximum safety during maintenance requires safety functions that are implemented directly on the drive, including Safely Limited Speed (SLS), Safe Direction (SDI), Safe Operating Stop (SOS) and Safe Torque Off (STO). openSAFETY guarantees safe motion control up to SIL 3 in accordance with IEC EN 62061 or PL e, Category 4 in accordance with EN ISO 13849-1.
Controlling motion with optimal performance
B&R motion control has the performance you need to get the best product quality at the highest production speeds. Using special function blocks for PLCopen, you can switch between position control and high-precision torque control within 400 µs.
