Aquatech presents “Industry 4.0 ready” new temperature control line at Fakuma 2018
September, 15, 2018 - At Fakuma, stand A7-7201, the Piovan Group will feature its Piovan, Aquatech and Fdm brands. While Piovan and Fdm are specialized in material handling systems and advanced solutions for plastics processing - with Fdm more focused on the extrusion process - Aquatech specialises in industrial cooling and temperature control technology.
In fact, the Friedrichshafen's exhibition, which will be held from the 16th to the 20th of October, will be the chance to present Easytherm by Aquatech. It’s about the new temperature control line, “Industry 4.0 ready” thanks to the integrated OPC-UA protocol, which includes a range of versatile units allowing smart energy use management, Aquatech claims. Another solution from Aquatech is Flexcool, a system which, according to the company, allows utmost efficiency and flexibility of application, whose core is the thermochiller DigitempEvo.
Piovan will show its Winenergy and Winfactory 4.0 supervision software which will be featured on touchscreens. Winenergy is the energy use monitoring and analysis system comprising proprietary software that is connected to a series of measuring devices – which acquire data about a variety of physical parameters including power, electricity, thermal energy and temperature. It can be installed on its own or in combination with Winfactory 4.0, to maximise system control and efficiency, the company says.
By Piovan, as the ideal solution for the fully automatic material supply to the processing machines, there will be the model EL20 of the Easylink+ line, featured by a state-of-the-art pipe cleaning procedure, which, according to the company, guarantees the absence of cross-material contamination.
Easylink+ will be in operation together with the Modula series auto-adaptive dryer and the Pureflo filterless granule receivers.
Moreover, for the first time at Fakuma, Piovan Quantum E gravimetric batch blender with continuous extrusion control will be exhibited, equipped with its 15” touch-screen panel control.
A big-size granulator will complete the product display under the Piovan brand.
Fdm will showcase a gravimetric dosing system of the GDS series, featuring Siemens control, designed for the needs of pellet, flakes, regrind, additives and powder treatment.
