SIGMATEK has 30 years of experience in the automation of plastic processes. We offer the right system solution for all areas of plastics processing. From extrusion and blow molding technology to injection molding, you will find the right hard and software with us. Our industry know-how also includes downstream machines, handling tasks, finishing processes, as well as peripheral devices. Such processes can be performed by the machine directly or connected to one another via real-time Ethernet standards such as VARAN.
The Engineering Tool LASAL provides tested software and technology modules that form the basis for a customer-specific design of the application software. Technology modules include, among others, hydraulic controllers, self-optimizing temperature regulators, online data writers, SPC, BDC, Energy Recording and Euromap interfaces. Language and unit conversion, alarm logging and password levels are only a few features that the LASAL automation software provides.
The right hardware for each application is essential for implementing cost-efficient solutions for the demands of the plastics processing industry. For this purpose, in addition to the standard hardware, SIGMATEK offers special modules for the plastics sector: from customized operating devices to process-optimized I/O modules such as for temperature recording with signal processing, modules for connecting potentiometers and ultrasound distance measuring systems or modules for recording energy use.
Our industry experts select the optimal application-specific hardware components and customize them for you, so that you have a tailor-made and economic complete solution - whether for:
Handling devices and robots can be fully integrated into the control platform. The productivity thereby increases, since for example, ejectors and robots move precisely towards one another.
Single and multiple CPU solutions are possible and can be connected to one another via field bus standards such as VARAN. A decentral system configuration is therefore simple and flexible.
For extrusion technology, there is special hardware, such as configurable temperature modules (type J, K, L, etc) and predefined software packages for up to 7 selectable extruders; each with up to 16 heating zones.
... through modern touch screen technologies. Display sizes up to 24 inches in vertical format and mobile HMIs guarantee, that you maintain an overview. The innovative HMI-Link Technology enable remote solutions of up to 100 m.
... provides synchronized motion sequences and short production cycles – with reduced hardware costs, since a separate robot control can be eliminated.
Tested software technology modules form the basis for flexible configurations of plastics machines. The software for the different machine types can be generated automatically with scripting.
... assembly line production: complete system for punching, welding, riveting and injection molding of MMS. Here, exact and fast control processes are the Alpha and Omega.
