Available for all Alpha™ Flying Shears, the Alpha™ Flying Shear Controller Upgrade improves reliability and provides a simple, user friendly process for real-time control. Change part-length on the fly, reduce setup time with stored recipes, increase control via real-time feedback, and benefit from increased service potential and future software updates.
The Alpha™ Controller Upgrade replaces obsolete control systems that are no longer serviceable or supportable. While older controllers are proprietary dedicated microprocessor based CPUs, the Alpha™ Flying Shear Controller Upgrade utilizes an Allen-Bradley PLC and other readily available components ensuring long-term viability. Simple PLC based controls allow customers to perform simple programming changes and mill integration.
