the project

Turnkey Drive & Control Systems for a complete Electro-Tinning Line at Trostre Works.

the solution

The drive system included over 50 Eurotherm AC & DC Digital Drives, utilising the link control system providing precision tension control, enabling flat pre-trimmed level strip to be presented to the process section for equilibrium of tin plating and coil quality in terms of final wound coil wall straightness and roll quality for further processing.

The process section of the line incorporated twenty eight 800 Amp 0-500 Volt AEG AC regulators to provide the precise control required for the tin plating and chemical treatment of the strip.

MCC’s were provided which incorporated HMI’s for local control, alarms and diagnostic’s.

The control system included a distributed Alspa PLC System with over 3000 I/O.

With operator control & visualisation for the line via five pulpit mounted intellution FIX SCADA systems.
