CP9000 Co-Extrusion Supervisory System
Available from TSM Control Systems
The CP9000 provides a central overview and control of the co-extrusion processes for up to 12 layers and can monitor blender data and extruder data on an individual extruder on each multilayer process simultaneously.
The system can download / retrieve information from the individual blenders and controllers utilizing client/server architecture designed to run under windows NT/2000/XP. The "server" runs on the main computer and gathers data, generates material reports, alarm reports, and administers the recipe downloads. All information is available on the operator interface which in its self is a simple, user friendly touch screen that uses intuitive graphical illustrations to show process status.
Multi – tasking not only allows the customer to simultaneously run the cp 9000 on more than one networked computer, but also simultaneously or individually ramp all extruder lines or layers via the central panel. Furthermore the cp9000 has comprehensive reporting services such as;
