COMPLETE REFIT OF A 3500 TONNES PRESS IN UK
Back in 1999, DB Engineering built the electrical control system of a complete Aluminium Extrusion Line in UK. That included everything, starting from the High Voltage 10kV transformer station, cabling all installed machines en designing all PLC programs. From Billet heater, over press, Puller, until the packing area.
The original PLC system, made by Schneider PREMIUM series, became obsolete after 20 years of perfect service. Since this platform is now end-of-life, DB Engineering was asked to come with a solution to ensure another 20 years of flawless production.
Since DB Engineering has a lot of experience in refitting older extrusios presses, and is renowned for Schneider PLC systems. We were able to offer a complete new automation platform based on the new M580/M340 PLC platform of Schneider. All field networks will now be controlled by Ethernet.
