Drives To Power The Industry’s Highest-Rated Slitter Machines

DCS Drives to Power the Industries Highest Rated Slitter Machines Control Techniques 1 400x275

August 10, 2022

Control Techniques’ Unidrive M300 and M700 with MCI modules retain the high standard of quality, precision, and functionality synonymous with Canadian firm Deacro. 

The industry leader’s current facility is designed to meet the tremendous demand for converting equipment while providing the improved service that today’s converters require, and a working environment geared towards quality control and optimised service.

In 2004 it began searching for more flexible, dynamic drives; the Control Techniques portfolio proved to provide the flexibility it needed. Recently, the company switched to the latest Unidrive M300 and M700 series. 

By changing to the new drives, the Deacro machines no longer require a PLC. Machine control is provided via multiple MCi210 modules installed in the drives. The MCi210’s power the Unidrives, Modbus TCP/IP Remote I/O’s, and pneumatic valves on the machine.

Clarence Beishuizen, Deacro President, comments,

“The Control Techniques drives are the heart of Deacro’s control system. They offer us exceptional flexibility, particularly with the winder block design and optional modules to add our specific features. We build the highest quality slitter rewinders in the industry. And, with the increasing needs of our customers for the latest technology and faster web speeds – up to 3000 fpm – we require the most innovative control technology that is only offered by Control Techniques. They help create the most technically advanced equipment for our customers.”

Conserving Power and CO2 Emissions with Premium Efficiency Motors

The process of converting electrical energy to mechanical energy is never perfect. As much as we would like to have a 100% efficient motor, it is impossible to build a machine that will take 746 watts of electricity (the equivalent of 1 Hp) and convert it to 1 Hp of mechanical output. It always takes somewhat more than 746 watts to yield 1 Hp’s worth of output.

Motors are continuously being pushed to be more efficient and reduce these losses. Over the years the guiding regulations of motor manufacturing have pushed us to improve efficiencies to new levels to reduce the considerable global power consumption of motors, as they are everywhere. From our factories, utilities and homes and most anywhere you can think of.

How much power consumption aka money are you spending that you do not have to? Take a minute while having your coffee to see if you can save money.
