Nidec-Avtron’s paper experience extends beyond primary production machines. Nidec-Avtron supplies encoders, drives, controls and retrofits on:
- Super Calenders
- Off Machine Coaters
Typically, encoders used in converting and finishing are light duty models. Nidec-Avtron upgrades these encoders to our more robust styles which last longer for the same price, resulting in increased production.
Nidec-Avtron’s retrofit rebuilds are done as stand-alone solutions or complete systems. We install our AC and DC drives with Ethernet communication, touch screen HMIs, and cost effective PLCs to extend the life of your machine.
One example of a retrofit rebuild is done on a paper cutter. Paper cutters are typically mechanically controlled with expensive gears and pulleys. Nidec-Avtron developed a retrofit that converts the mechanical controls to individual electric drive sections with a new HMI and PLC. Electric drives and motors are then used for the pull roll, knife, and take-away conveyers. The benefits are faster response to different cut sizes, reduction in expensive mechanical maintenance repair, and increased productivity.
If any of your converting/finishing machines have old electrical or mechanical controls that need to be upgraded, contact Nidec-Avtron for a proven solution.
