The machine is used to press glass mats with extruded plastic materials into a very robust base material used in the automotive industry. The S5-135 series controller was retrofitted with integrated third-party hardware to control multiple axes. Due to the new S-7 400 series controller and a newly designed control software, it is now possible to operate the machine with a high level of investment protection. The state-of-the-art WinCC system also replaced the control system. Conversion work was carried out during the annual audit after which time the machine was put back into full operation – 24/7.
