Three reasons for choosing Siemens S7 control system upgrade
Extended machinery lifetime
Improved quality control
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.

Speaking about his company’s recent upgrade, he continues: “The entire upgrade project with Glaston’s ProL-zone went very smoothly.
