BURGO assigned to SAEL the automation drive revamping of its most important winder at Sarego plant in Italy. The original automation system was based on a Siemens PLC and Drives; the spare parts availability was a critical issue. Every anomaly encountered was difficult to be understood and solved. This was the booster for a decision to move forward and looking for a more open system and available over the time.
“SAEL has always been next to the technical team of Burgo Sarego: together we are managing systems installed more than 35 years ago, offering assistance and spare parts as well. Thanks to our Reeborn dc system we gave new life to 55 years old drives. Our mission is to be closer to our customers, and this is what BURGO T&I, as much as others important Paper Mill Groups, love”, said Paolo Andrighetti of SAEL.
The turn-a-key supply involves the replacement of the existing Siemens electrical cabinets with brand new one by SAEL – focusing to the present regulation.
Since ever, Burgo Group pays a lot of attention to the safety, and this specific job is in the same philosophy. The new “PLATFORM ONE DRIVE” by SAEL will drive the existing motors via “WINDER SAEL Scalink”: the most innovative and powerful complete solution for paper mill industry.
This new retrofit will be installed soon, providing great diagnostic tools. Thanks to the open-source software solution, the technicians will access to the documentation whenever needed. Very easy to drive and friendly user. Last, but not least, the system architecture developed will allow further evolution and upgrades.
