Reproducible automation solution

Reproducible automation solution

In new developments as in retrofits, the engineering company Brodbeck values safety solutions and components from Pilz, which can be transferred to several plants. Such as the control system PNOZmulti 2, the safety gate system PSENmlock and the coded safety switch PSENcode.

As part of a redesign of a cardboard tube cutting machine, Brodbeck needed to modernise the control system and electronics, and also implement a new safety solution.

PSENmlock: Safe interlock and guard locking in one device

With a large number of drives, rotating cardboard tubes, guide rollers and a circular knife it is necessary to cover a whole set of hazard risks. The special purpose machinery manufacturer attaches great importance to integrated automation and safety solutions that make machines safe, productive and easy to operate. For reasons of efficiency and costs, the selected control, safety gate solutions and switch types have to be suitable for use in several machine types.
Therefore, today you find the versatile configurable control system PNOZmulti 2 in conjunction with the safety gate system PSENmlock and the coded safety switch PSENcode from Pilz not only in the retrofit plants, but also in other Brodbeck machines.

PSENmlock: Safe interlock and guard locking in one device

Benefits and advantages of the solution:

  • Integral, reproducible control, safety and component solution: Can be transferred to several plants
  • Control system PNOZmulti 2: Versatile, individually adaptable: Integrated automation and safety solutions in the field of special purpose machinery
  • PSENmlock: Safe interlock and guard locking in one device with high holding force: For retrofit and new machines

Ultimately, Brodbeck attaches great importance to quality and reliable customer service.
According to Siegried Maier, this continues to be the best recipe for long-term and stable customer loyalty: “Our customers do not want machines, they want convincing solutions including competent advice and reliable service.” This is an approach that Pilz and Brodbeck follow together.
