Software and hardware complex of controlling «Quarto» measure cut machine
The complex is intended for day and nightautomatic control of mechanisms and electrical equipment of measure cut machine. Apart from cutting the strip it also provides counting sheets in a formed pack.
The existing old machine control system was replaced by a system based on modern industrial controllers for harsh environments, and advanced sensors.

Project Starting Date
The system implementation allowed:
- improve the reliability of the machine work by applying modern microprocessor-based means of automation and as a consequence, reduced downtime of production equipment and consumption of energy resources through the fault of failures in an outdated control system;
- increase the productivity of the unit as a whole due to the optimization the cut algorithm;
- the improved quality and competitiveness of produced goods by increasing the quality of the strip surface (at the stage of development of the system it was required to ensure the accuracy the cut 5 mm over the entire range of lengths of 1400-6000 mm, as a result of the implementation of systems we have the cut the maximum error of 2 mm long pieces and less than 1 mm for short ones);
- to provide safe and reliable operation of the machine by ensuring the smooth operation of the system in a actually existing electrical fluctuations.
