High performance through state-of-the-art servo technology!
Founded in 1983, the family-run company from Großen-Buseck, Hesse, offers product-specific solutions for automatic packaging machines and form fill and seal machines, which are 100 % designed and manufactured in Germany. Also, the company has established a second mainstay in the production of special industrial products, such as sealing tape accessories and spare parts for packaging machines. I was able to see this for myself on-site!
Their many years of experience in packaging machine construction enable Prewa Verpackungsmaschinenbau GmbH to use their technical know-how to meet the diverse and increasing packaging tasks or requirements of their customers. In doing so, they rely on controls, operating devices and servo motors from Siemens. We are happy to provide support!
From dosing to the finished bag, the company offers “high-end”, “economy” or “low-cost” solutions for powdery, liquid, viscous and pasty as well as pourable products and granulates from the food and non-food sectors. Here, up to 200 tubular bags per minute from 5 mm to 750 mm film width can be filled and sealed.
Functional integration of machine and motion control
In their packaging machines, Prewa relies on the SIMATIC S7-1500 controller with integrated motion control function. From the conversation with a programmer and Martin Wagner, it emerged that a time saving in engineering and commissioning of the machine is estimated at 50 % precisely due to the function integration.
High acceptance by the end customer
Prewa does not only rely on Siemens for control and drive technology by default, this is mostly explicitly requested by the end customers! In the cooperation with Siemens, Prewa appreciates the good technical support both remotely by phone or by mail as well as the personal support on-site.
Remote monitoring & remote control
Especially in the current situation, where travel is severely restricted, remote monitoring reveals a welcome function with perspective! This allows changes to be made to the program remotely or a targeted diagnosis to be made in the event of a production failure. Besides the considerable reduction of service costs, the plant operators are provided with a fast as well as comfortable support.
