Siemens S7 – Control system upgrade

Improved process control and productivity


Three reasons for choosing Siemens S7 control system upgrade

1.

Extended machinery lifetime

2.

Improved quality control

3.

Production efficiency

Control system upgrade


The S5 control system used in ESU machinery until 1998 has become obsolete. Getting spare parts is difficult, and in some cases, even impossible.

The new control system S7 is now available as a retrofit for old machinery, offering an excellent opportunity to improve process control and productivity. The new features in the user interface give detailed information on production parameters and process flow feedback.

“The market in Vietnam for cars is very large with lots of room for growth. People are becoming wealthier, and sitting in a car is more comfortable than being on a scooter, which may be prohibited in the next few years,” says Nguyen Phuong Tran, Production Manager, and son of Long Nhien Automotive Glass’s owners, about his home market. “The Glaston Matrix windshield bending furnace is a stepping stone for us to tap into this rapidly expanding business of hundreds of thousands new cars per year.”

“I was very impressed at how quickly we were able to install the new ProL-zone upgrade on our existing lamination line – only 3.5 days – and I’ve been equally impressed with the high-quality output,” says Rob Carlson, Mechanical Engineer at Tristar Glass, Inc.’s Tulsa, Oklahoma facility. “Glaston’s convection technology has exceeded every expectation. The system really does work as well as they said it would – maybe even better!”

“With growing demands in our market, we needed to bring our older Glaston furnace up to modern standards. Thanks to the installation done over Christmas break, we were able to save time – to get up and running quickly at the start of the year,” says Sanjay Meghani, Director, at Super Sealed Units Ltd in Dunstable, UK. “Today, we are able to temper higher performance glass, achieve flatter results and utilize the full furnace bed for greater volumes.”
