Flying roll change (splice control)


The splice control application forms the platform to develop a position-based solution to implement a flying roll change.

Function overview

  • Scalable solution (fast outputs, standard outputs)

  • Position-based calculation to control outputs for the press roll and knife

  • Dead time compensation

  • Optional: Position monitoring

  • Referencing via probe or sensor


It includes standardized functions for a flying roll change, and can run on the following automation platforms


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


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

Additional standard applications associated with the splice control application from the Converting Toolbox
