Another successful application from our Netherlands distributor Innomotion.
This time is a Woodcutting / Profiling machine with 11 axis control!
As you can see on the picture our partners use 7 VFD-E drives for transportation and high speed spindle, and 4 servodrives ASDA-A2 400W for the cutting/profiling.
Everything controlled by central CPU with Master CANopen module (DVPCOPM-SL).
Via the PC Cad drawings are imported to the Machine and machine settings are executed. The PLC is controlling all the I/O and servo’s for the motion.
In this machine the wooden boards for the stairs are cut to length , width and angle on front and end of the board. The PC software is written in Labview.
I hope you like it!
And with some luck, you can use it as inspiration for your next project!
This time, the problem comes because of the big number of drives needed for the application.
Up to 68 Slaves to be controlled by a PLC, and even in Modus the theoretic limit is 128 nodes, the ones who are really in the field should know than more than 32 nodes means big troubles.
According to this, we recommend to our customer to use CANOpen in two different CANOpen Networks of 34 slaves each.
See the below picture with the network configuration
Just let you know that it wasn’t easy, but is working, thanks for the great technicians of our Turkish distributor FastLTD.
This is a new application for our Netherlands distributor Innomotion.
The idea is to make a concrete truck more economic and silent.
Normally the drum is turned with diesel power (hydraulics) from the truck.
Now the drum is loaded at the factory on electric power (cable) and on the road a small generator is supplying just enough power for slow turning and unloading of the truck.
It will save fuel but most of all were possible the truck can unload on the cable so in the innercities there is less pollution on the building site and less noise.
Inside the big cabinet there is a C2000 45KW delta PLC and HMI.
Nice eco-project Innomotion!
Dank u wel
Did you already test our DVPSCM12-SL?
If not, I don’t know what are you waiting for!
The DVPSCM12-SL is the magic device that allows you to communicate with any RS485 based device.
And we’re no talking only about PLC’s or HMI’s… We’re talking about inverters, HVAC, Electrical power analayzers or whatever your customer decides that needs data.
Injection Molding machines is a quite common application, because of that, Delta develop several solution depending on the different type of injection moldign machine.
In frirst place, we develop specific solution for this application called HES
This system provides precise pressure and flow controls, with our Delta key point in power: The energy savings.
In this moments, this product is under field test in Asia, and really soon on the rest of the world!
But If you want to take a look over our technology, check the below presentation
But for standard systems we got another solution.
Probably many of you already hear about our new C2000 Delta Inverter series, and possibly many of you already work with it in some application.
So this is one of the multiple ways to squeeze the capabilities of this versatile product.
The keypoint in this system is use the internal PLC and the PG card (encoder feedback) of C2000 to create a standalone control system able to adjust itself without any extra controller.
On the below links you will find the parameter configuration and PLC program to beable to test by yourselves.
The G-Code files are a codified files that transform a Autocad file into a motion control trajectories, making the programming of motion control systems really easy.
Thanks to that codification, you can cut a difficult wood profile for example, designed previously using Autocad, and avoiding the hard PLC programming work to the engineer.
The problem that customer use to have with DVP20PM is when customer want to change the cutting profile of their product, because in that occasions, the Computer is needed, and not always our customer have a computer on the machine, isn’t it!
Here, is where appears our new DOP-PS models, already available in EMEA region.
With this HMI´s your customer have the capability to change the G-Code profile only with one USB disk, following the next process:
1. Create Autocad File
2. Transform to G-Code and copy to USB disk
3. Connect the USB Disk to the DOPB-PS and download it to the 20PM
4. Run the program!
According to that, our HMI team prepares for us the complete following example where we´re going to cut an Scorpion picture profile into our 20PM.
You can download the HMI and PLC programs, and a nice pdf detailed explanation of how they create this application in our FTP Delta application guide folder
As you should understand this really simple kind of CNC tool could be applied to many kind of applications, from Wood cutting, plasma, or gluing, to stone grinding or even metal cutting!
Don´t hesitate to share your experiences with us.
And really soon same functionality to DVP10MC the future CANopen motion controller from Delta!
Probably in all the factories of the world, is necessary to codify the items produced in some central computer.
And the most typical way is using barcodes, I am pretty sure that all of you already seen some.
In the past, the Barcodes readers sent the information to the computer/HMI using RS232 serial port, but obviously the interface has changed lately to USB or wireless readers.
According to that, we would like to share our experience with the following factory configuration
Long time ago I got the opportunity to program by myself an industrial Washing Machine.
In my case I remember to use:
– DOPAS35THTD -> Is what we got on this time.
– DTC1000 -> with PT100 sensor
– DVP10SX11R -> To be able to control the inverter using analog output, and using the analog input for pressure sensor)
– VFD-E inverter -> To be able to use OOB (out of balance) function specially designed for washing Machines.
OOB or Out of balance is a firmware instruction used during the spin stage, to stops automatically slows down the inverter when the clothes are not perfectly centred.
This special function is not really common on other brand inverters, so be aware washing machine makers!
In this case the Global Service Centre uses different kind of elements, but with the same result.
