Substitution of control program SIMATIC S5 -> S7
Implementation 2011/2012

Optimizations and expansions of the production processes of line 3 made it necessary to replace the old S 5 central unit by a more efficient VIPA S7 compatible control unit. By using a VIPA IM 306 DP module it became possible to continue to utilize the old S5 I/O components.

The inorganic safety insulation

FOAMGLAS®, the inorganic safety insulation of cellular glass, has been proving itself for well over 50 years. With its millions of hermetically sealed glass cells, FOAMGLAS® corresponds to the ideal type of an insulating material. Due to the material structure, the vapor barrier is already “built in”. FOAMGLAS® is absolutely waterproof and vapor-tight. Due to its cell geometry FOAMGLAS® has extraordinary compressive strength, even under long-term loads. In addition there are further advantages due to the specific properties of the raw material (glass), such as incombustibility, dimensional stability (no shrinking, no swelling, no dishing), acid resistance and resistance to attacks by gnawing animals and insects (no rotting).
