Replacement of PLCs and NC controls by IPC based controls
A customized HMI is integrated into the operating panel of a sheet fed offset printing press, which can do double-sided printing in a single pass. The printing machine is controlled via a TFT touchscreen on which settings and status data are displayed. Almost all the peripheral devices are controlled using the touchscreen via CANopen. The system, which is equipped with an onboard graphics solution, is shock and vibration resistant.
