SIMATIC Traversing Drive

  • Entry
  • Associated product(s)
The SIMATIC application Traversing Drive is part of the Converting Toolbox and was developed with the objective to provide common functions which are necessary for any kind of converting machine.

The standard application Traversing Drive is providing open application standards for winding and spooling of round- and flat-material, e.g. for wire, cable, paper or non-wovens, etc.
The transversing drive follows the winder drive, either in the system via an electronic gear (the winder itself is then also controlled from the automation system) - or externally via a machine encoder. The traversing drive profile is emulated using a cam profile. This can also be influenced during operation via parameters and is checked for plausibility within the application.
