The Converting Toolbox, a set of standardized automation tools for the integration of various machine components, simplifies web processing applications and offers greater flexibility of film converting machinery. It is completely scalable and is provided at no cost to qualified machine designers, builders and integrators. Completely scalable, the automation tools take the form of pre-programmed functions. Sample applications demonstrate how each function can be efficiently and effectively implemented into a machine design. Such sample applications are ready to use after only minor modifications and include basic HMI functionality.
