Quad Plus engineers and technicians have a long history of optimizing coating and converting lines. Recalibration of controls, using mechatronics and empirical measurements, are necessary to ensure the line is running at optimal speed while maintaining the highest levels of performance and quality possible.
We start by assessing the gear in mechanics and the HP capabilities of the sectional control and then make recommendations to improve their performance. Next, the team will analyze the drive section and measure the reflected inertia on the shaft of the motor, making adjustments based on the findings. Finally, we will re-tune the outer loops, as necessary, to achieve a good solid tension control with minimal deviations.
Line Speed increases are similar to Line Optimization, but on the front end, we will review the mechanics and process variables to see if the machine can attain a new speed.
