Project:      Control system retrofit for automated Gasket Press

Client:      Valley Products Co., Inc .


Project description:

An existing, manually-operated gasket pressing machine was retrofitted with an automated control system for setting up and cutting custom parts. The system was a duplicate of five existing similar machines. The control system utilized a Cutler-Hammer D500 PLC with encoder feedback to implement material feed, precision cutting and hydraulic pressing.  An operator interface panel was provided to allow for setup to accommodate various product sizes.
