PLC, machine control systems
Just as with process control systems, A&C plans the hardware and software according to customer requirements and specifications. Control and periphery cabinets are planned by A&C and built by longstanding partner firms. Built-in control panels or PCs are employed as user interfaces.
Testing and inspection machines
Depending on our customers’ requirements, A&C creates concepts for testing and inspection machines based on cameras or sensors. These are either integrated into ongoing production processes (with a connection to existing controllers, process control systems or OPC servers) or installed as standalone solutions with their own controller and operating unit – always depending on what the respective customer needs or the production process demands.
QCS, cross-machine and machine direction profile control
Originally developed for coating board web for beverage packaging, our PCS-7-based cross-machine and machine direction profile control is now universally used in both paper and board machines. A&C’s QCS application is programmed in SCL. While it has so far been used predominantly in PCS 7 environments, the code can also be ported to other PCS or PLC environments.
