High Tech Extrusion unveils new extrusion lines
The High Tech Extrusion group presents its new TEC 4s as retrofit kit, which has been developed with Siemens according to the newest state-of-the-art technique, and combining simple handling and a uniquely efficient control system .
The group, which consists of the companies Theysohn, Technoplast, Topf and Extruder-Komponenten Salzgitter, is an “all-in-one” provider which has developed a unique series of extrusion lines, tools and pipe heads, after the latest development of the new OMNIA series and the new RK Streamliner pipe head.
The new Extruder Control System TEC 4s has an operating terminal optimised for heavy industrial conditions , which enables a comfortable control of the whole extrusion line in combination with the modern HMI-Software. The 19“ touch screen guarantees easiest operation with large soft-keys and intuitive colour and graphic design.
The core of the new Theysohn Extruder Control System is a powerful, fanless and therefore maintenance-free industrial-PC. The communication between the TEC 4s and all drives, peripheral devices and the whole downstream equipment works through the most efficient bussystem - PROFIBUS. Operational reliability and short down time are achieved by simple wiring because of selected high-class components, an analysis program and remote maintenance via LAN and/or WAN.
The major advantage is that in 99% of all cases the customer himself can maintain or exchange spart part of the system. Changing the frequency converters or CF-cards is simple and does not require complicated technical know-how ; and therefore production downtime is avoided. Also, software updates can be installed simply and quickly.
