R&R AUTOMATION

  • Automated bearing monitoring can save BIG $$.

  • Automated station controls feeder cabinet and roll motor which prohibits “over-amping” or waste of electrical power.

  • PC Compatible so mill can be operated by a single employee thereby decreasing human error and increasing productivity.

  • Control station allows for adaption for future areas of automation. 

  • Provides automatic production and control updates. PLC provides for remote control.

  • Automated grease units eliminate human error and increase bearing life.

  • Safety issues are resolved because actual “Hands On” situations are decreased.
