CLIENT EXPECTATION

Within the context of the implementation of a new fusion oven, the complementary raw material feed realised by the HFX bridge had become strategic.

Our client’s aim was to modernise the bridge with the aim of automating it in the long term.

DV GROUP SOLUTIONS

  • The implementation of induction elements piloted by drives with optimised energy throughputs in order to replace the existing motorisations which were ageing and obsolete.
  • The implementation of a robot to monitor safety and movements and the implementation of zoning with defined speeds, all of which could in time manage the bridge automatically.

TECHNICAL ZOOM-IN: EQUIPMENT IMPLEMENTED

  • Schneider ATV 930 type drives associated with Leroy Somer motors: closed loop regulation, network-piloted.
  • M580 safety robot and safety input/output separated from the network via CPL
  • Screens in the bridge cabins
  • Excalibur radio control
  • Bridge operator’s seat for fixed cabin creation
  • Piloting of the new cupboard magnetisation, with stripping management (management of the level of magnetisation and demagnetisation)

WORK CARRIED OUT

  • Electrical, electro-technical, robotic and safety studies with SISTEMA
  • Realisation of the cupboards on the bridge, containing the drives and the main PLC

  • Supply of a new fixed cabin bridge operator’s seat
  • Replacement of cables
  • Implementation of zoning captors
  • Replacement of the motors and mechanical adjustments
  • Replacement of the electrical cupboards
  • Fitting of the new fixed bridge operator’s cabin
  • Renovation of the old onboard bridge operator’s cabin
  • Implementation
  • Training of bridge operators, maintenance and production staff
