Many process lines are based on different sections (e.g. entry /furnace /exit), and each one may have different speeds according to the process requirement. pxSPEED™ can manage different speeds and control the filling /emptying of the loopers to reach the overall process line speed set-point.
The system pxSPEED™ operates autonomously and detects potential issues on actuators or sensors, if necessary it switches to a lower and safe-speed. If the trouble still persists and could affect the material quality or integrity, pxSPEED™ can stop the line in a smooth way. This approach avoids damage and ensures a faster restart.
