Europoligrafico (Fibrapak) Invests in ER-WE-PA™ Control System

Europoligrafico (Fibrapak) of Perugia, Italy, reportedly recently improved efficiencies and line performance with a new control system from ER-WE-PA™ GmbH, a subsidiary of Davis- Standard, LLC. The new system was installed on an existing ER-WE-PA extrusion coating line used for aseptic liquid packaging applications. The control package features Siemens drives and a central S7 PLC with WinCC® visualization screens for managing all aspects of line control including speeds, extruder temperature, automatic die profile control, unwind and winder functions.

“One of the best and most cost-effective ways to improve operation on an existing line is with controls,” said Paul Knorsch, aftermarket business development leader at ER-WE-PA GmbH. “The supervisory control and data acquisition (SCADA) of this system simplifies operator functionality while allowing for greater monitoring and regulation of various parameters. We know Europoligrafico (Fibrapak) is already seeing a marked difference in line functionality.”
