Wittmann Battenfeld equips old machines to meet new challenges

Successful control system upgrade at Liebherr Hausgeräte GmbH

(PresseBox) (Kottingbrunn, ) Wittmann Battenfeld machines are often in use for decades and remain in perfect mechanical condition even after heavy stress. Control system upgrades can be used to refit aging control systems. This helps the customer avoid the continuously increasing costs of spare parts along with time-consuming and expensive retrofit programmes.

Especially in economically troubled times like these, control system upgrades offer plastics processors a reasonable alternative to investing in new machinery. Wittmann Battenfeld now supplies such options in the form of control system packages based on the latest microprocessor technologies for upgrading to the latest generation of Unilog B6 control systems.

This ensures the first-class operation of the machine's control system for many years to come while enabling new technical functions without the need to purchase new machinery. The process and batch logging function fulfils the requirements of Quality Management, facilitates the updating of documentation and shortens future corrective and preventive maintenance work.

Control system upgrades offer a number of economic and technical benefits. These derive primarily from an increase in the reliability and machine availability and an increase in productivity as a result of reduced downtimes, as well as the achievement of shorter cycle times. The use of state-of-the-art technology guarantees the greatest levels of operability and usability.

Application of the latest control technology leads to measurably greater reproducibility of processes - individual program sequences can be generated locally by the user. A separate e-mail function automatically sends notification in the event of an unplanned shutdown.

These decisive arguments convinced the long-time Battenfeld customer Liebherr Hausgeräte GmbH, headquartered in Ochsenhausen (Germany) to modernize their Battenfeld BA-series machines - which remain, in the customer's eyes, in first-class condition - by installing an upgrade to the level of the Unilog B6-generation control system. Technicians from the German Wittmann Battenfeld subsidiary in Meinerzhagen successfully carried out this customer request on a total of eight machines during the summer months of 2008.
