Integrated Control Systems

  • Controls

    Developed specifically for the complete range of Baker Perkins extruders, a touch-screen HMI provides clear, at-a-glance visualisation of the process, including current status of all major components and parameters.

    Data logging

    Data trending and logging, and a network connection for data acquisition and remote access support short and long-term efficiency and process improvement programmes. 

    Startup and shutdown sequencing

    Startup and shutdown sequencing cuts waste at the beginning and end of each run: production does not start until the machine has warmed up, and the extruder does not shut down until product is completely ejected from the barrel, resulting in minimum cleaning between product changes.

    Alarm management

    Alarm management means that the operator can immediately identify and locate problems.

    Recipe management

    Automatic management of recipe settings ensures exact, unvarying replication of product, eliminating quality variations caused by operator error, while the data collection system records all key process variables.

    Worldwide support

    A worldwide support network includes fully configurable software packages and interchangeable components across the full range of machines for spares commonality.

    Benefits
