AUTOMATIC MACHINE FOR PROCESSING ROLLER SHUTTER GUIDES
Complete with 10-slot bar-holder trolley, bar movement system, bar feed system, mobile work units to carry out the necessary operations on the roller shutter guides, mobile work units to carry out the operations on the guides, a labeling machine, a motorized unloading at the end of the job (does not scratch the profiles during the unloading phase) with chute and product collection, double separate collector for recoverable and non-recoverable scrap, a 15″ PLC console, intuitive and with simple buttons, with integrated software to manage and optimize the work process, and a sensor system to detect the operating status of the machine. The working units are changed manually, according to the guides to be worked. The brain of the machine is the PLC, i.e. it is possible to set the production data: the software allows you to establish the type of bar to be machined, on which bar to make the round hole, the type of hole to be made (on some bars you can have the hole not embossed, on other embossed ones, there is no double possibility), and allows you to automatically calculate the pitch, it is also possible to decide whether to perform the rectangular break, and finally the number of bars to produce. Once the data have been set, by pressing START, the line works automatically, the machine performs the operations established on the rolling shutter profiles. The PLC integrates a 4.0 software that allows you to monitor the production data and the processing status of the machine in real time on your computer. Furthermore, the machine makes it possible to optimize the scrap: the recoverable scrap will fall into a special collector positioned on the side of the machine, while the non-recoverable scrap will fall into a separate collector. All OPM machines comply with the reference CE standards.
The 4.0 allows to facilitate and automate the management of production, progress, control and monitoring in real time. In other words: ensure efficiency, effectiveness and flexibility in the implementation of production plans. Furthermore, the system itself can warn in real-time of any critical issues encountered. Interconnection is a key element in the creation of a Smart Factory 4.0 as it makes the factory an integrated and connected system. The purchase of “intelligent” machinery allows access to the Industry 4.0 tax benefits provided for by Italian law.
The OPM machine is controlled by means of a PLC equipped with a 15” single touch resistive display equipped with digital and analog inputs/outputs. The machine has numerous sensors designed to preserve and guarantee the order of operation of the components and to identify any critical issues, and to monitor the working and process conditions.
It is designed to be interconnected to the factory IT systems via the TCP-IP E communication protocol and via the international addressing standard for unambiguous recognition, the IP address.
It is designed to be integrated in an automated manner with the logistics system or with the supply network and/or with other machines in the production cycle, i.e. the machine can be interconnected with other devices via a special LAN port located in an easily accessible position communicate information. The machine can interact with other production equipment within the company through the use of software and track the operating status of the machine, productivity, any anomalies and all the information that is deemed of sensitive interest. For example, the machine can “read” an Excel worksheet as input, and provide an output worksheet with production data, which the customer extrapolates and decides on its use.
This makes it possible to integrate it into the company’s production context. It includes a simple and intuitive man-machine interface, i.e. a 15″ touch screen PLC programmed with an easy and intuitive user interface.
It meets the most recent safety, health and workplace hygiene parameters: The machine is manufactured by oPm S.r.l. in accordance with the conditions of the Machinery Directive 2006/42/EC and subsequent amendments. The CE marking as required by the machinery directive 2006/42/EC is affixed to the machine.
The machine has telemaintenance and/or telediagnosis and/or remote control systems, i.e. it is possible, via the Ethernet cabling provided by the machine via a special external connector, to connect it to computer network devices, and therefore to a PC. This makes telediagnosis or the possibility of monitoring the status of the machine remotely possible
The machine is set up for continuous monitoring of the working conditions and process parameters by means of suitable sets of sensors and suitable
