Retrofit Sheeters To Increase Productivity
Yaskawa F7 Drive
RECENTLY, a nationwide packaging customer contacted Dreisilker to find a way to improve the productivity of their corrugated cardboard sheeter line. Our solution involved retrofitting their older model sheeters with new motors and variable frequency drives (VFDs).
Set-up Time Is Downtime
In studying the operation, we found a key obstacle to productivity: each time the sheeter operator changes jobs, he needs to manually adjust the PIV crank to fit size specifications for each batch of board. This adjustment set-up time varies up to 60 minutes per job. That’s valuable downtime that translates into wasted dollars. By replacing the older mechanical PIV gear drive with newer VFD technology interfaced to a programmable input control, the sheeter operation achieved better performance, greater accuracy and minimal downtime.
