SIMATIC Winder and Tension Control
The application is technological foundation for many kinds of finishing processes and provides comprehensive functions to realize winding or tension control functionality.
It contains control loop function blocks using dancer systems, load cells as well as indirect tension control. Furthermore specific functions like torque pre-control, diameter calculation or tension taper.

LConSMC - Standard Motion Control
LConAMC - Advanced Motion Control
Both options for S7-1500 offer the same functionalities in order to realize a winder or tension control solution. In case there are further technological functionalities required, like flying splice, traversing winding or general positioning tasks, the S7-1500(T) and S7-1500T solution offers a unique access via technology objects based on motion control functionality.

SIMIT model for continuous web simulation:
This application example allows you to simulate a continuous web process of your converting machine in order to virtually commission your PLC program using PLCSIM Advanced and SIMIT. Mechanical and process elements like winders, driven axes, guide rolls, dancers, and the web behavior can be modeled with the described simulation components. Among others this allows you to test and validate your winder and web tension control in the virtual environment.
A screen recording shows the modelling and execution of the example projects.
