COE Press Equipment offers its next generation PLC Controls with multiple advanced features designed to reduce the time required to commission new press feeding lines. New loop and press simulation capabilities enable COE to test, debug and perform a complete startup prior to shipping, decreasing set-up time at the customer by half or more. A new user-friendly HMI logically guides operators through the set-up process and COE's Work Roll Advisor and Feed Roll Advisor software are now embedded into the controls, all contributing to easy set-up and changeover.

New features include:

  • Loop Simulation-Emulates material to see how a straightener reacts to changes from the feed
  • Press Simulation-Simulates a press with SPM changes, feed angles, pilot, start feed, press at the bottom, etc.
  • On the Fly-Automatically changes speed of the feed to adapt to a press
  • Direct Speed Enable-Straightener automatically hits target speed at the first stroke
  • Work Roll Simulation-A visual guide to help operators see what is happening inside the straightener
  • Work Roll Advisor-Automates straightener set-up
  • Feed Advisor-Automated feed set-up
  • Smart Speed-Automatically adjusts to optimal line speed based on press speed and feed window (requires ethernet connection with press)
  • Ethernet Diagnostics-Allows operators to see in real time any connection failures between devices
  • Pictorial main menus-Operators can easily navigate to machine specific control screens by selecting an image of the machine they wish to operate.

Key to the new controls is a totally redesigned user-friendly HMI and 10" touchscreen, making it easy to enter machine set-up information or quickly troubleshoot issues in the system. Other features of the new PLC Controls include 100-job memory storage and password protected job editing and parameters to secure stored recipes.

The new controls are offered with any COE coil processing line.
