Intelligent Machine and System Communication

in the Plastics Industry

Sesotec uses OPC UA Standard for increased productivity and profitability

At the Fakuma 2018 trade fair in Friedrichshafen from 16 to 20 October, Sesotec GmbH in hall B1, stand 1302, especially for the target groups of injection moulding companies and system integrators focuses on metal separators that can be networked in the production environment. The OPC UA (Open Platform Communications Unified Architecture) machine communication standard contributes to the optimisation of processes in the plastics industry, from production through to service, and to the minimisation of time and product losses, and it thus guarantees highest quality and maximum value creation.

What is OPC UA?
Industrial communication through OPC UA provides the required network mechanisms for data exchange between machine components. In the production process this ensures communication that guarantees a smooth production flow and initiates countermeasures in case of errors. Efficient industrial networks and properly functioning automation only can be realised on the basis of communication standards such as OPC UA, because such standards ensure a high level of openness and flexibility.

What is the benefit of OPC UA for injection moulding companies and system integrators?
If in the processes of the plastics industry processing machines such as e.g. injection moulding machines are networked with peripheral machines, e.g. dosing units and metal separators, it can be ensured that the dosing unit feeds sufficient material if the metal detector detects a metal contamination and triggers a reject process. The benefit of OPC UA for injection moulding companies and system integrators is that product quality can be guaranteed because underinjection of produced plastic parts is avoided. OPC UA furthermore improves and simplifies service, e.g. maintenance measures. Machine parameters can be evaluated on cloud basis and are thus available for service engineers in real time.

At the Fakuma 2018 Sesotec also presents proven metal separators for the plastics industry which prevent metal contaminations from reaching plastics processing machines and thus protect tools against clogging and damage. Furthermore, Sesotec also presents the new service packages that ensure best possible preparation in case of malfunctions.

At the trade fair stand experts of the Sorting Recycling Division shall be pleased to answer any questions concerning the latest technologies for plastics sorting.

MB-Sort – Contract Recycling of Metal Waste and Plastics
with Sesotec VARISORT COMPACT Sorting System MB-Sort is headquartered in Schönberg in the heart of the Bavarian Forest. Established in August 2016 the company presents itself as a specialist for material recycling on a market with great potential and offers professional contract sorting of all kinds of complex and technically problematic materials. The objective is to recover secondary raw materials from different kinds of mixed fractions, for example from electric and electronic waste, metal waste, and plastics. Task Every month MB-Sort recycles up to 200 tons of various mixed fractions. Its customers include recycling companies and companies from the manufacturing industry. ”In our own sorting line the material must be sorted into different material groups or cleaned. Sesotec’s VARISORT COMPACT system is optimally suited for this task”, says Markus Burghart. Solution: VARISORT COMPACT The material to be inspected is fed into the VARISORT COMPACT system by means of specifically adapted vibration feeders

Networked Sesotec Solutions in Friedrichshafen OPC UA (Open Platform Communications Unified Architecture) presented for the first time
Networked Sesotec Solutions in Friedrichshafen
OPC UA (Open Platform Communications Unified Architecture) presented for the first time Schönberg, November 2017 A well-attended FAKUMA 2017 is over, and also this year Sesotec convinced trade visitors with the metal separators presented at the trade fair. At the FAKUMA Sesotec not only maintained existing business relations with customers and partners but also was able to establish many new national and international contacts. The trade fair presence with the new ”Purity matters” corporate claim was a complete success. At the FAKUMA 2017 Sesotec presented metal separators of the PROTECTOR, RAPID PRO SENSE and GF series. These systems reliably detect and separate magnetic and non-magnetic metal particles even if they are enclosed in the granulate, and they thus ensure the quality of plastic products. Injection moulding machines, extruders, and blow moulding machines are protected against damage and clogging, the output is increased, and the amount of rejects is reduced. Metal separators contribute to the optimisation of processes, to the minimisation

Intelligent Detection of Contaminants in Food
At the Anuga Foodtec 2018 Sesotec presents X-ray inspection systems At the Anuga Foodtec 2018 trade fair that will be held in Cologne from 20 to 23 March Sesotec GmbH in hall 5.2, stand D010, as trade fair highlight presents the completely new-developed RAYCON D+ product inspection system to trade visitors. With the Intelligent Power Management Software of the RAYCON D+ system Sesotec sets new standards with respect to detection accuracy, application flexibility, and ease of operation. Since metal detectors in the food industry reach their limits when they have to inspect products in metallic packagings, more and more producers and processing companies rely on the advantages of X-ray systems which reliably detect a wide variety of contaminants (metals, glass, stones, ceramics, plastics) as well as other defects (broken or missing products). Sesotec’s RAYCON D+ system surpasses the specifications of internationally applicable standards such as IFS and BRC in part by up to 400 percent and features a rate of faulty detections of less
