Fast Automation completed an upgrade project on a 20+ year old antiquated train wheel press. The existing system used a Parker Embedded motion controller and two large Texas TI PLC’s. The new system utilises a single S7-300 PLC and Wonderware Intouch SCADA together with Sick Laser measurement sensors. The real challenge of this project was to commission the new system without any downtime on this critical machine.
