In August 2015, we successfully commissioned a casting machine. All of the power cabinets, some of the control cabinets and the automation were replaced. The entirety of the Profibus network was replaced with a Profinet network.
This new version of GAPCast manages 2 separate casting shafts with 2 flows each. The machine can operate in LHC or as standard, with level control (GLS-GLA).
This installation’s distinctive feature lies in its use of Siemens WLAN to acquire signals for casting tables.
