At the FAKUMA 2017 trade fair that will be held in Friedrichshafen from 17 to 21 October, Sesotec GmbH in hall B1, booth 1302, as trade fair highlights presents Industry 4.0-ready metal separators to trade visitors. These systems contribute to the optimisation of processes and to the minimisation of time and product losses.
The objective of plastics manufacturers and processors is to produce a maximum quantity of products in constant high quality. For achieving this objective the digitisation of processes is of decisive importance. For injection moulding, for example, digitisation in practice means that processes run stable and with high precision because information that is provided by peripherals such as metal separators is gathered in a network through standardised interfaces and machine parameters are thus automatically readjusted.
Networked Sesotec metal separators
Easy to use, highly robust, and efficient: These are the characterising properties of the PROTECTOR, RAPID PRO SENSE and GF metal separators that will be presented at the FAKUMA. These systems reliably detect and separate magnetic and non-magnetic metal particles even if they are enclosed in the granulate, and they thus ensure the quality of plastic products. Injection moulding machines, extruders, and blow moulding machines are protected against damage and clogging, the output is increased, and the amount of rejects is reduced.
Most machine and system manufacturers as well as plant operators today are faced with complex Industry 4.0 concepts. Concrete recommendations for action, however, are hard to find. Due to different communications solutions a system integration means immense efforts. This can now be remedied by OPC UA (Open Platform Communications Unified Architecture), which meets all the requirements of Industry 4.0 communication and is more and more established as a standard.
As an innovative company Sesotec concentrates on this type of integration to make metal separators "Plug & Play"-compliant.
Easy to use? Of course!
All the metal separators at Sesotec's trade fair booth of course also focus on ease of operation criteria. Intuitive user interfaces prevent user errors and thus increase process stability. The operating process is safe and the sequence of steps is logically structured. Data and the documentation in the system can be quickly accessed.
At the FAKUMA 2017 Sesotec presents proven metal separators and magnet systems for the plastics industry. Information about the presented systems can be found at www.sesotec.com/en/fakuma2017.
