>> Coperion offers user-friendly solutions for the controlling of twin screw extruders – from standard control systems in the compact version to tailor-made, open control systems for complete plants.
Control systems for twin screw extruders and turnkey plants
CScompact – control system for machines in compact version
The CScompact control system from Coperion is mounted directly on the twin screw extruder. It is based on a comprehensive function module system and can be individually adapted to the respective control job by configuration of the software. The advantages of this solution which has long been proven in practice: Very short delivery times, fast commissioning and maximum availability of the extruder.
CSseparate – modular control system for machines
The CSseparate control system from Coperion contains an extended function module kit in addition to the advantages of the CScompact control system. It is installed separately from the twin screw extruder. This solution also ensures fast, trouble-free commissioning by pluggable connections between the control system and the extruder.
EpcNT - flexible control system for plants
The EpcNT is particularly suitable for customized plant configurations and for controlling complete extrusion and compounding systems from the raw material feeding to the finished product discharge. The EpcNT control system is based on Siemens components. It features a clear graphic visualization and numerous software functions which optimize the production process such as recipe management, job management or trend displays of all the production parameters.
EpcS7 – control system for high-capacity machines
The EpcS7 controller is based on Siemens S7-400 FH and PCS7. With its clear graphic visualization it simplifies the operation of high-capacity extruders: The totally integrated SIMATIC PCS7 software system ensures clearly structured processes and renders them traceable. The visualization interface allows tracking of signals to the individual sensors and enables fast localization of the problem. The control system ensures fast commissioning and high availability of high-capacity extruders.
CSflow – control system for bulk materials plants
The CSflow control system is excellently suitable for controlling the materials handling components in compounding plants. It covers the entire material flow from the raw material feeding to the finished product discharge. The configurable modular system and the high degree of standardization make the CSflow control system available at very short notice and ensure fast commissioning as well as maximum plant availability. It can be combined optimally with the Cscompact machine control system and the EpcNT control system in modular and turnkey plants.
