Smart Solutions New Equipment and Software Applications at ‘K’
Brabender Technologie is showing the full range in Düsseldorf: The company comes to the K 2019 show with new equipment, new smart control features and a wide range of proven solutions.
Many new developments follow the ‘Easy Clean’ premise – simple cleaning and fast removal for easy product changeovers. Some of the existing equipment was also revised and optimised in this regard. This year, the company is presenting its new and existing designs as well as ideas both virtually and physically.
Focus on: control system
The equipment will be accompanied by many videos and on-screen applications which will also highlight new control features. The firm’s new OPC-UA interface is a step towards Industry 4.0. Data exchange regardless of the manufacturer is an important factor for establishing smart factories. OPC-UA means improved industrial communication: This interface transmits process and control data in a service-oriented architecture which opens up new possibilities for the organisation’s customers, states the firm.
The expansion to upstream machines, such as vacuum conveyors, is now also available in the feeder control and the OP16 control unit. This provides customers with a control for both machines from a single source, allowing them to optimise refill processes and ideally coordinate the machines, adds the company.
Launch of DSR28 and DDSR20
The engineers have completely revised two feeder models, the DSR28 and DDSR20. In addition to a new type of gearbox, this new range features many new components which are all compatible with one another and allow easy operation without tools – for easy cleaning. According to the company, both machines are displayed at the exhibition and also demonstrate the possible motor types, such as the new motor with extended adjustment range (1:100).
