WINDERS & UNWINDERS

smarty

automation controllers use the

drive.web

distributed control technology to bring easy, cost-effective intelligence to high performance drive systems.

smarty apps

are pre-configured generic packages for common applications:
  • smarty

    OPTION-1101, Open Loop Constant Tension Center Winder
  • smarty

    OPTION-1102, Closed Loop Dancer Controlled Center Winder
  • smarty

    OPTION-1103, Closed Loop Load Cell Controlled Center Winder
  • smarty

    OPTION-1104, Closed Loop Slip Core Winder
Printing Press, Precision Tension Winder

These generic configurations can be edited by the intuitive

drive.web savvy

graphical tools to suit the particular application. The clear signal flow diagrams are stored in the controllers for reliable access in the field.
