Wintriss Showcases New, Powerful Features in its SmartPac Pro Press Automation ControllerDecember 9, 2022
At FABTECH…Wintriss Controls Group demonstrated new, advanced features in its SmartPac Pro press automation controller, as well as its ProCamPac Pro programmable limit switch (PLS), specifically developed for the SmartPac Pro. The new PLS includes counter-driven outputs that operate only on specified press strokes, to precisely control gagging operations; new asymmetrical toggle outputs for controlling complex configurable tooling; and additional timed outputs for optimum versatility. Operating similarly, a new pulsed counter cam output is programmed with an “on angle” and a dwell time, instead of an on-off output. Useful when running configurable tooling, a new channel-always-on cam output will simply turn on and stay on until a new tool is loaded.
The ProCamPac Pro PLS also features a unique triggered-cam output that actuates a precision one-time cam-timing signal based on a preset trigger such as an external input from ancillary equipment, an extended period of machine idle time, or a job change. This output type proves ideal for diverting parts during a warm-up period, QC checks or when bad parts are determined by an outside measuring system.
Last but not least, Wintriss has developed a new customizable green sensor type called Green Flex, touted as a versatile cyclic sensor that can monitor intermittent events such as gagging operations, and also has a function that allows for the precise monitoring of events that must occur multiple times per press cycle.
