Project Description

This project was a retrofit of an old machine that was mechanically overhauled. HmT Mechatronics got involved by calculating the different torque requirements as well as specifying required equipment. The motor and VSD had to be capable of rolling 6mm thick sheet metal into cylindrical forms.

To control the machine, 2x foot paddle switches in conjunction with 2x e-stop rope switches wired up to a WEG CFW11 VSD acted as the control system. One foot switch is for forward, other is for reverse.
