The commissioning for this installation will take place at the end of 2015.
For the extrusion line cooling units installed in October 1992, the control equipment (SPS and screen monitoring) is out of date. The maintenance for these installations is becoming difficult to manage (with such issues as the reliability and dearth of spare parts, technical knowledge of this outdated hardware, etc.).
This project will be conducted on the new Siemens engineering platform, TIA Portal, with an S7-1500 controller.
