The problem: an obsolete control system
Picking a single IP750T to upgrade first, Ningbo Boli knew exactly what the project’s priorities should be. Scrap castings had to be automatically separated from good castings while the new system had to support digital data collection, remote access and injection data analysis.
Any solution had to collect, store and display relevant process data like the injection curve in real time while making it possible to remotely access and export data so that managers could easily monitor die casting production.
At the same time, the system had to be simple and user-friendly so operators could easily supervise, monitor and control the tasks performed by the machine. This ease of use would also allow new technical personnel to learn how to operate it quickly.
Italpresse Gauss supplied a technical proposal and quotation in May 2019 for an EMP (Equipment Modernisation Programme). The EMP would install the IP LV (Light Version) supervisor control panel system. The IP LV had already featured in more than 40 successful upgrade projects but this would be its first deployment in China.
