Material Handling
PRINTING BARCODES DIRECTLY FROM A PLC PROGRAM

Executive Summary: The L-Shear uses servos to position large laminated copper sheets under a shear to cut them into precise sizes used for circuit boards. One goal of a recent control system retrofit was to allow bar code printing to be controlled by a PLC without requiring a computer or operator data entry. This machine is a limiting factor in plant production speed. This meant that plant production was impacted when data entry errors necessitated a special re-run through the L-Shear to reprin

TUBE AND CONDUIT MATERIAL HANDLING AND BUNDLING

Executive Summary: Kredit Automation was contracted to retrofit the PLC and HMI on a line that bundles tubes coming off the fabrication line. (Tubes are made by roll forming cut-to-length steel sections into a tube and welding the seam. Various chemical treatment and coating steps including intense UV irradiation result in tubes fit for various harsh conditions and duty.) This project was done to replace aging equipment for which reliability and parts availability and a closed proprietary H
