TIP F 1311 Replacement of obsolete Micromatik drive systems by SinamicsSimotion components

Machine Model for Improvement

All Jagenberg Folio Sheeters with Micromatik (μM) drive systems

Description of Improvement

This upgrade is part of our Technical Improvement Program (TIP) and replaces the obsolete Micromatik (μM) drive(s) and drive control systems by new Sinamics/Simotion components.

This TIP is applicable for Jagenberg folio sheeters equipped with a Micromatik (μM) drive system for:

  • Cross cutter
  • Suction box
  • Main draw roll
  • Overlapping
  • Tape section

The current installed Micromatik drive and drive control components will be replaced by a Siemens Sinamics/Simotion system.

The Micromatik electrical cabinets will be replaced by new completely pre-assembled electrical cabinets. If possible, the

dimensions of the new electrical cabinets will be equal to the currently installed Micromatik electrical cabinets.

For Micromatik DC drive systems, the motors will have to be replaced by an AC drive system. Most AC motors can remain as they are, however, some of the installed motors might be obsolete and need to be replaced as well. This will be evaluated from case to case.

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.
