TIP C 4017 Upgrade of PLC to state-of-the-art Rockwell ControlLogix

TIP C 4017 Upgrade of PLC to state-of-the-art Rockwell ControlLogix

Machine Model for Improvement

All E.C.H. Will cut-size sheeters with PLC machine control (regardless of make and type)

Description of Improvement

Critical components for the PLC machine control are obsolete and spare parts are no longer available. If any of these components should fail or break, extensive sheeter downtime and costly production loss would result.

This upgrade converts the PLC machine control, regardless of make and type, to a state-of-the-art Rockwell Allen-Bradley ControlLogix machine control. All components, such as the CPU and I/O cards, are replaced. The availability of spare parts for this new system is ensured. A complete new rack with the new components is integrated in the existing electrical cabinet.

The new ControlLogoix machine control allows trouble-free communication with others systems and is therefore a prerequisite for future upgrades.


  • Modern ControlLogix machine control replacing obsolete ensures spare parts’ availability
  • Prerequisite for further upgrades
  • Investment typically pays for itself within days - compared to unplanned downtime

A sheeter that we had planned especially for our lightweight specialty papers has become an all-round smart sheeter that can process even heavy grammages up to 300 gsm with maximum cutting accuracy.
