Feed Control System Boosts Cut-To-Length Productivity .
01 May 2002
Rexroth's OptiFeed-CS drive and control system for material feed and cut-to-length operations includes a number of functions, which can be set without resorting to NC programming. These functions include automatic feed optimisation, feed angle start point setting and auxiliary controls for coil and roll feed peripherals. Inputs such as length, speed or number of parts are all that is required from the operator. The firmware actually contains 99 production programs, each with up to ten single-part lengths and up to 999 repetitions. The system includes, controller, HMI, rotary and linear servo drives plus inverter drives rated from 1 to 600kW.
