Winder technology

Description

The winder application is the technological basis for many continuous finishing and converting processes. Moreover it provides comprehensive open-loop and closed-control functions for axis winder drives.
The application comprises modules with closed-loop control related blocks (e.g. filters and controllers) and winding-specific functions
Individual closed-loop control concepts can be implemented by adapting the blocks or by combining the basis blocks.

Function overview

  • Dancer roll position or tension control

  • Closed-loop torque or speed control

  • Diameter calculation technique with or without feedback

  • Precontrol of all of the relevant process variables

  • Parameterizable winding hardness characteristic


Converting-Toolbox

It includes standardized functions for winder drives and can be universally used on the following Siemens automation systems:

SIMOTION

For high performance motion control applications with central intelligence combined with SINAMICS S120 drive systems


SIMATIC

For applications with a PLC as central open-loop control, in which additional closed-loop process controls are implemented


SINAMICS

For drive-based applications with process-related implementation of the closed-loop control in the SINAMICS S120 drive system using DCC (Drive Control Chart)
