Alpha Drives Ltd Upgrades Stacker System with SIMOGEAR and SIMATIC Solutions

At Alpha Drives Ltd, we pride ourselves on delivering comprehensive and cutting-edge solutions for our customers. Recently, we were contacted by a customer looking to upgrade their aging stacker system. The system had been in use for many years, and the obsolete geared motors and controls were in need of a modern replacement. We provided a complete package from geared motors to the PLC and drive system, ensuring seamless integration and enhanced performance.

Comprehensive Upgrade Package

To address the customer’s needs, we supplied the following components for the stacker system:

  • SIMATIC S7-1500F, CPU 1511F-1 PN: A powerful and flexible PLC for advanced automation tasks.
  • SIMATIC ET 200SP: A modular and scalable I/O system for easy expansion and integration.

The integration of these components provided the stacker system with significant improvements in performance and reliability. The SIMATIC S7-1500F PLC offers advanced processing power and flexibility, while the SIMATIC ET 200SP I/O system allows for easy and scalable integration. The SINAMICS S120 drive system ensures precise and efficient control of the stacker, optimizing its operation.

The SIMOTICS motors, equipped with brakes and encoders, deliver accurate feedback and reliable performance, essential for the demanding tasks of a stacker system. The SIMOGEAR bevel helical gearboxes provide robust and efficient power transmission, ensuring the system operates smoothly and efficiently.
