Tetra Pak had been struggling with the reliability of their Edwards Pearson 300 ton, 4 meter press brake. The old control had intermittent memory loss and intermittent axis positioning problems. Folding was a very much hit and miss routine. The Sick LVU Light Guard was also having issues and was having to be turned off and on to get the machine running again, many times a day.
Evolution Machinery has now resolved all of these issues by refurbishing the machine with a new Esa s650w control along with new linear encoders and a new Smartscan T4 Light Guard. The control and light guard were interfaced with new relays, safety relays and power supplies.
"The machine is now very accurate and reliable and the new Esa s650w control is so much easier to use."
