We have supplied dozens of retrofitted control systems on presses from several different press manufacturers worldwide. The systems are based on standard ABB components such as controllers, control panels etc. that are in use in countless demanding industrial applications worldwide. This means that spare parts are also available everywhere.
The new press control system also means that the modern presetting functionality becomes available (as far as the press allows this) thereby reducing startup waste and improving quality.
The benefits of complete press control replacements are clear. The owner gets a modern, reliable control system which optimizes the quality and maximizes the productivity of the press without the enormous cost of replacing the steel. Owners will also find the long-term availability of ABB spare parts reassuring and a protection for their investment.
