When you choose Omipa you are sure you will always have the best process qualities: stability, simplicity and customisation.
All Omipa lines are supplied with a supervision system controlled by PLC.
The software, produced internally, is always tailored to individual needs.
The use of a PLC allows you to record and monitor all the line process parameters: speeds, revolutions, temperatures, absorptions, outputs, pressures and alarms.
Designed for the central control of the entire line and of each single equipment, the system guarantees precious advantages as it makes line management more practical and functional.
Each alarm (the system can manage up to 400) can be connected with a control procedure, enabling the operator to solve problems by consulting stored instructions.
Codified recipes can be stored and recalled in real time, whenever necessary, thereby making it possible to modify line parameters easily and quickly, with the possibility of immediately repeating the desired production, without slowing it down in any way.
All the data provided during line operation are, in turn, stored to create an overall historical record of all the production parameters, such as:
- graphs of pressures, motor speeds, line output trends
- automatic starts
- line values
- alarms (date, time etc.)
- product management, stacking systems etc.
In addition, the software will allow you to manage:
- automatic start-ups
- pre-heating by means of a timer
- line maintenance program.
Although this is a complex system, it was studied to offer the operator extreme simplicity of use. The entire line management is concentrated in a single work station, and a graphic display of all the functions allows direct action at every point of the line from a single control site.
The system can be interfaced with the main corporate data management software, for global and integrated control of production (orders, purchasing, stocks).
The digital control system is the “mind” of every Omipa extrusion line.
For the operator, everything becomes easier, safer and more manageable. For the company, practical advantages result in better overall control of production with a consequent higher profitability of the line.
