With the Universa 500 Servo C, Kallfass Verpackungsmaschinen GmbH relies on an integrated Siemens solution using the TIA Portal, all the way from the drive to the visualization system.
The family-owned company Kallfass Verpackungsmaschinen GmbH, based in Nürtingen, Baden-Württemberg, has been developing and selling film packaging machines worldwide for 50 years, with corresponding system solution expertise and the necessary industry know-how. In this context, the Kallfass product range includes a wide range of shrink tunnels, film banding machines and film wrapping machines. In addition, Kallfass packaging machines are characterized by high availability, reliable service and support, global contacts, and market-driven innovations.
These packaging machines are used in many different industries. This includes, for example, the printing and paper industry, contract packaging and service companies (fullfilment), the food and beverage industry, and the wood industry.
The Universa 500 Servo C is a fully automatic, continuously operating side welding machine. It is characterized by universal application possibilities and high flexibility. The machine type is very robust and meets internally high quality standards. Furthermore, the side welding machine stands out due to its simple and largely maintenance-free handling.
Technically and future-proof, the Universa 500 Servo C is equipped with the following Siemens technology – starting with the drive technology: 1FG1 servo gearmotors in combination with the SINAMICS S120 multi-axis inverter system ensure a continuous process. In the future, this process will be centrally controlled by a new S7-1500 T-CPU and supported by decentralized peripherals based on ET200SP. The visualization and operation is handled by a SIMATIC Comfort touch panel. All the automation components mentioned are integrated in TIA Portal, which creates a consistent database and major advantages in engineering.
The topology illustrates that there is continuity in the TIA Portal from the drive to the visualization, which can be seen in the following graphic.
With this, Siemens is supporting Kallfass on its way to the perfectly packaged donut.
