Siemens Answers with a Toolbox of Motion Control Solutions for Converting Industry Applications

As converting industry requirements continue to expand - higher production rates, greater machine flexibility, optimum product quality - industry-specific technologies continue to demand more from the drive and automation systems.

The wide range of converting industry solutions in the Siemens Converting Toolbox can help.  Starting with PLC-based solutions that are executed in the SIMATIC S7 PLC, to the drive-based solutions achieving a high level of performance through implementation in the SINAMICS S120 drive, to the SIMOTION motion control solutions that have few limits when it comes to performance and flexibility, Siemens pre-engineered and customized solutions address current and future requirements for any converting application.
