In addition to the industrial PLCs, I / Os and fieldbus components, the drive technology and the automation software S7, 1200/300, the product range includes a uniform, scalable and modular control system.
Increasing product diversity, strongly fluctuating lot sizes and pronounced cost awareness require a high degree of flexibility in global competition. This is exactly where the PLC-based control technology from ATM offers a decisive competitive advantage:
- and flexible solutions with high performance and high precision.
As varied as the size and shape of sheet metal parts, the machining processes are just as varied, from rolling, cutting, embossing, folding, drawing, joining and cleaning to finishing the surfaces. The production takes place on processing machines, in presses, in punches, in processing centers or in fully automatic production lines, which in addition to the pure sheet metal processing also include handling devices, storage, automatic material feed and integration into the company network.
The production systems should work in a highly productive, precise, reproducible and of course cost-effective manner. This requires optimally coordinated processes with short downtimes and set-up times. Large forces at high speeds, which are required for machines, also require sophisticated control technology. ATM also require expandability and flexibility in order to be able to meet customer requests simply and inexpensively.
Automation solutions | Scalable control technology
The scalable and modularly designed ATM solution enables customized solutions with regard to computing power, complexity and costs, which significantly increase the productivity and flexibility of sheet metal processing machines. All over the world, diverse applications in presses, cutting, bending and welding systems demonstrate the advantages of PC-based control technology, in which all processes, from the control to the control, motion and HMI, run on one PLC. The high processor performance of the PLC technology enables the elimination of special hardware. B. Position and pressure regulator for hydraulic valves can be replaced by software. The PLC calculates even the most complex control engineering algorithms without sacrificing performance and also provides enough performance for other functions, such as measurement tasks.
The optimal control for every application
ATM offers industrial PLCs with Windows operating systems for every size and performance class of sheet metal working machines. In combination with the S7 200/300 automation software, the PLCs form a powerful controller for PLC, NC and CNC functionalities. Additional programs, for example for visualization, can be easily integrated.
