Central controller and transport unit of our automatic test system (PTA-Line). All settings for the various tests can be set in this controller. All measurement data is saved in this unit.
The PTA-Line control and transport unit is the heart of an automated testing system.
As its name indicates, it regulates the sample feed that transports samples to connected measurement devices and then also takes control of them.
This means that individual independent measurement devices form a fully automatic test line for the measurement of profile samples of any type.
It doesn’t matter if these are cross-section profiles for production control, or long profiles for early detection of faults at the paper machine – with the transport system, which is accurate to within millimetres, almost any testing scenario can be realised, according to requirements. Operation via the integrated touch screen guarantees high levels of comfort.
Controls and analysis
With the growth in number of connected testing devices, the number of configurations grows accordingly.
As with the individual testing devices, the PTA-Line control and transport unit is also equipped with a software assistant, which doesn’t just help to quickly and clearly implement test requirements, but also loads them so that a complete profile test can be initiated in just a few operations.
Especially for production control, this is a real advantage in meeting deadlines.
The measured data is analysed in real time, any incorrect measurements are detected, and then the complete profile is displayed on the screen for analysis or further processing in a QM system.
