NipcoSet is a modernization of the Nipco roll control. The zone control is modernized without changing technological characteristics. The evaluation function is also new.
In modernizing with NipcoSet, the conventional Nipco roll control basically retains its current function, but is now based on the latest control and visualization technology. The modernization involves replacing the analog technology with a screen-guided PC, system control via a PLC S7, and depending on the condition of the hydraulic system, replacement of the hydraulic valves in the current valve cabinet with the latest Profibus valves. Along with visual and easily intelligible presentation of all functions, the new system allows evaluation, and if applicable, error detection.
Modernization with NipcoSet can be done in presses, calenders, supercalenders and soft calenders.
