Looks good on paper
18 August 2014
Mostafa Paper Complex Ltd (MPCL), a paper mill based in the Chittagong district of Bangladesh, uses the new Unidrive M variable speed drive plus encoders and systems solutions by Control Techniques on its latest paper machine.
Designed specifically for manufacturing automation applications, the Unidrive M drive solution controls various suction rolls, paper guide rolls and dryers within the paper machine.
The Unidrive M700 AC drive is reported to offer class-leading induction and permanent magnet servo motor performance, with real-time Ethernet. M700 delivers maximum machine throughput through greater control with single and multi-axis network synchronisation.
On-board real-time Ethernet (IEEE 1588 V2), advanced motion control and high speed I/O for position capture has made it easier than ever for machine builders to create more sophisticated and flexible machines.
