Focus on Control

Most feeders operate as part of a larger system, interconnected to produce a coordinated formulation. This section introduces you to today's flexible, high-connectivity SmartConnexTM environment for full spectrum continuous and batch solutions from single device control to multi-line supervisory systems.

Individual feeder accuracy is only part of the performance equation. In plastics as in most other process applications, several feeders must act in concert with each other and with associated processing equipment. System wide control, connectivity and communications is a key factor in achieving and maintaining end product quality.

This section introduces Coperion K Tron’s innovative SmartConnexTM Control Environment, detailing its applicability to the full range of controls applications encountered in plastics processing.
