We received an urgent call from a customer with an extruder which became in-operable after developing a fault.

It was found that a replacement drive was needed for it’s 132kW Siemens Simovert Masterdrive now obsolete. From stock Alpha Drives Ltd. installed and commissioned a new 132kW Siemens Sinamics G120 Power module PM240-2 along with a Profibus Control Unit. Alpha Drives Ltd. also modified the original PLC code to add a new GSD file into the S7-300 PLC.

Within 2 1/2 days the Extruder was fully commissioned with new drive and returned to full operation.
