Control System Upgrade for Foam Insulation Cutting Process

Challenge

A leading producer of fiber-free mechanical foam insulation for HVAC, plumbing and refrigeration applications was looking to upgrade their production system with new technology. They wanted a new system that would improve efficiency and precision in their cutting process. The upgrades had to work within the constraints of their existing footprint.

Solution

We have worked with the customer on prior projects, so they knew the team at OSCO has the skills and experience to upgrade the equipment safely and reliably. We designed the system as 3 separate control panels to fit within the footprint requirements. Each panel includes the necessary components for proper operation of the equipment (drives, servomotor, and low voltage).

Result

After installation, testing and startup, the customer has commented that their cutting process is now “light years” ahead. HMI’s help set the control speed and provide direct feedback for more precise control and setting cutting lengths. The systems is way more intuitive and much easier to operate.
