Case Study

Printer Processing

Overview

In paper packaging, processing paper and cutting at high speed is a critical aspect. Patty Paper and RSI worked together to develop a servo controlled system using low latency latching IO hardware to ensure that paper moves around the lines without any tear and is cut at precisely the right location.

Solution

Hardware

RSI assisted with the selection of the servo system including the motor, drive, and I/O hardware to achieve the required speed, torque, and minimize I/O latency within the application budget.

Software

RSI developed an intuitive user interface; enabling maintenance staff to learn and setup the system quickly. The application is windows based so it can run on any windows tablet, or laptop making it easier to identify and resolve problems with minimal downtime.
The application we developed logs relevant data to an online server for remote diagnostics and data analytics.

Control Panel Design

RSI helped the customer design and assembled the control panel which houses the servo control system. Special precautions were taken to insure the control system could operate in the harsh environment.
