11 - Development and engineering of a complete set of modules to be
flexible on the metals sector,
applied successful to the Steelcorp of Philippines project.
last development which I'm been involved, is been for the creation of a
group of modules on VME standard (Unix - c), for ANSALDO
The Modules are conceived
to be interconnected within them self, and/or with a PLC or more PLC, and,
trough a configuration, to be adapted at any steel factory. This modules
are already been implemented on two project:
1: A pickling line on Bilbao - Spain by ANSALDO BMB -
Barcelona - Spain.
factory complex on development on the Philippines as follow;
1 Pickling line, 1 Coating line, 1 Galvanizing
Speed Master and tension master control of the line.
Pay-off reels and rewinders control.
Automatic slow down at end coil at the pay-off reel.
Automatic tail positioning at the rewinder. (coiler).
Loop pit management interfacing the speed master.
Coil car and/or Loop tower control (Hydraulic or motor).
This is the hot one, it manage; material presence,
welding presence, length counters, auto slowdown
function, at end tail at shear (both entry and exit, with or
without passline, from shear to a welder or joiner, both
head and tail, automatic slowdown and stop for a
welding or for length reached or tail in a desired point on
Strip code generation and interface them to the master
Enable or disable the pulse generator to Lpit or
Interfacing DC and AC drivers, multiply module can be
used, that means that if a module can control up to 60
drivers, if two moduls are used, can be controlled up to
Like drive but conceived to manage bridles with
maximum of 4 drivers each bridle..
