To mark the 40th anniversary year, miromatic is presenting one of its fastest machines for container sizes up to 10 kg with the use of the SINAMICS S210 servo inverters from Siemens, which made commissioning 20% faster.
Whether mixing, dosing or filling – at miromatic all wishes are fulfilled in the food and non-food industry. Based in Egg a. d. Günz near Memmingen, the family-owned company is one of the European market leaders for hygienic bucket filling systems and mixing plants.
The company was founded in October 1981 exactly 40 years ago with the aim of offering only the best solutions to the food industry and fulfilling individual wishes and requirements of professional project execution.
It all started with the mixing control technique to produce fruit yoghurt. The company then built up a second main pillar with the filling of food.
Filling quantities from 1 kg to 30 kg are possible here. The company is particularly strongly represented in the aseptic hygiene sector.
This covers all areas of application, from dairy products to nutritional additives to products for large consumers.
miromatic and Siemens deepen their cooperation
With the foundation of the company, the first salespeople from Siemens were in the company and were able to convince with their competence and support.
For this reason, a good partnership has always been important.
A crucial point for miromatic is Siemens’ market strength. Siemens components are already represented in 99% of customers’ equipment regulations, which offers a perspective advantage of using Siemens as a standard in their own machines.
From programmable logic controllers to fuses and contactors touch panels, many Siemens components are installed in the systems for end customers.
In connection with this, Mr. Rothdach, foreman in electrical engineering, emphasizes the perfect support. Whether on site or on the phone, the cooperation between miromatic and Siemens is going very well.
The positive experience with the support of Siemens was also a decisive factor in the decision to use the SINAMICS S210 servo inverter for the newly developed machine.
Siemens scores with a high speed in the drive system and easy commissioning
The order to supply a filling line with particularly high outputs was the basis for using a new drive system. The requirement for synchronous running to be able to transport and fix the container at the same time, is decisive.
This condition is fulfilled by the integrated motion control functionality of the SIMATIC S7-1500 in combination with the SINAMICS S210 inverters from Siemens.
Further advantages are the very easy commissioning of the SINAMICS S210 as well as the integration via Startdrive in the TIA Portal.
In particular, the common data budget and the direct connection of the drive technology to the control technology is a clear simplification compared to the old system. This has accelerated the commissioning time by 20%.
The integrated trace function also makes troubleshooting considerably easier, by the possibility to record drive and control signals at the same time.
The enthusiasm of Stefan Eichenseer, automation engineer at miromatic, speaks for itself: “The trace function is the best!”
In the end, the requirements were fully met and the Comfort Highspeed system was built, which enables more than 1000 cycles in one hour with a container size of 3 kg.
With this success, miromatic continues to offer its customers the best quality, with the highest hygiene standards and high-performance machines!
