Siemens PCS7 control system, proces visualization, trending and archiving of measured variables and alarms, creation, printing and archiving of production protocols, cooperation in validations (qualifications). Developing engineers are members of ISPE.
Control systems conform to current EU GMP, US FDA and GAMP requirements. They also meet the requirements of CFR 21 Part 11, which set out the procedures and technical requirements for using computer systems based on the electronic data storage and electronic signature.
Slitting lines, cut-to-length lines, blanking lines, surface treatment by mechanical, chemical and coating appllication, belt rewinding and unwinding, tension control, belt centration, weighing and packing of output coils.
When putting into opearation the plant, individual measurements of the mechanical properties of the unwinder and winder are performed to optimize drive settings for low winding torques. Tension control ensures a precise alignment and tightening of of individual revolutions on the winder drum.
Belt cutting is performed when the belt is stopped or by using the flying shears. A special case is the cutting of trapezoidal sheets by swivelling the shears using Siemens Sinamics S120 frequency convertor.
Surface treatment of metals
Pickling, phosphatizing, nickel plating, zinc plating, hot-dip galvanizing, neutralization, exhausting and absorption. Push proces lines for belts, bath process lines for coils and rods.
Fully automatic or semi-automatic transport, pickling programs, transport optimisation for the bath pickling as the event-based production system using software tools, see Computer simulation >>. Computer simulation generates hourly production rate, confirms sufficient number of manipulators and handling c-hooks, provides a workload analysis or machine utilisation.
Equipment for the surface treatment of metals is exposed to aggressive chemicals, therefore the material used in electrical installations (cable routes, sleeves, cable ties and fasteners) is designed with this in mind as well.

We perform an analysis of the layout design of the production system, using computer simulation on a processed digital model. We verify the basic capacitance parameters and optimise narrow and/or collision spaces; more information is available in Computer simulation >>.
General principles for the design, assessment and reduction of risk are processed by the EN ISO 12100 standard. The risk assessment is carried out for all threats, the standard defines the sequence of steps, starting with establishing the function of the machine.
In designing electrical equipment, we take into account the safety application standard EN ISO 13849-1. A risk chart is used to determine the required level of safety and works with the term “required performance level PLr”. Not so often the standard EN 62061 is applied, where the process represents a numeric method and works with the term “required safety integrity level SIL”.
In the design of safe automation, we use the software Siemens Safety Evaluation Tool tested by TÜV or IFA SISTEMA developed by the German Institute of occupational safety. It allows modeling of the structure of the designed safety-related parts of control systems, and works with familiar concepts PLr, MTTFd, PFHD, etc. The output is the verification of the relation of PL≥PLr, i.e. the calculated level is higher or equal to the required one.
We design the safety concept of the equipment in the initial processing of the project. More often they are designed PLCs in safety embodiment, i.e. Allen-Bradley GuardPLC from Rockwell Automation or Simatic Safety Integrated from Siemens. Find out more here >>.
The portfolio of services includes digital model processing and subsequent computer simulation of the behaviour of the discrete production system. We specialize in branched conveyor systems with buffers, the production of semi-finished products with the use of intermediate storages, assembly lines and workplaces in the automotive industry, and last but not least, galvanisation plants and bath pickling lines. We use the simulation tool Siemens Tecnomatix Plant Simulation.
Computer simulation helps during the design of a new production line, modernisation of an existing one, when a new product is put into production, or for increasing labour productivity. It is possible to verify with a high level of probability whether ii is possible to meet the customer requirements with the proposed concept of technical solution.
Bottlenecks or collision points and states are identified, there is a verification of the selected speed, production rate per unit of time,, sufficient number of defined resources or capacity of buffering stock, and measures are carried out – layout and the number of resources is changed, the transport flows or decision criteria are modified; all of this without the use of actual resources (machines, operators).
It is possible to define a production batch or mis of batches, recipe, define the working shifts, number of functional machines etc. directly in the model or an external MS Excel table. The results are reports, graphs, and answers to questions that help the responsible workers when taking decisions. Project managers, production managers, investment personnel, financial managers adn corporate management. Decisions are not taken on the basis of estimates and feelings, but facts.

RFID Identification and RTLS locating
TAURID is a certified partner of Siemens for industrial identification. SIMATIC Ident systems include the RFID (radio frequency identification) and CRS (code reading systems) and newly also RTLS (real-time locating system) technology. RFID technology can be used wherever there is a requirement for greater flexibility and the quality of production for tracking the movement either final products or transporting baskets.
RFID technology is able to detect objects within a distance of a few cm (frequency range HF 13.56 MHz) or several meters (frequency range UHF 860-960 MHz). Detection is reliable even though it is polluted by oil or dust; multiply detection is possible; the data can be modified and a large amount processed. The advantage of Siemens RFID technology is an easy integration into PLC Simatic S7-300/400, S7-1200/1500 or PC.
Our specialists will be happy to help you elaborating a design for industrial identification system using RFID technology, with the dimensions of suitable data carriers, read/write heads, communication interface and with the appropriate system configuration of management and monitoring, either on the PLC or PC platform. We offer the comprehensive automation and industrial identification solution for your production line.

FANUC and KUKA robots
TAURID offers the automation of production lines using Fanuc industrial robots. A team of experienced engineers and programmers process the documentation for choosing the right type of robot, prepare the application program and, of course, carry out the actual commissioning. In certain cases, robots can be pre-programmed offline in the FANUC ROBOGUIDE simulation tool. Robots can be equipped with a communication interface for communicating with PLC (PROFIBUS, PROFINET, Ethernet/IP). FANUC offers a broad portfolio of robots with a maximum capacity on the order of tens to hundreds of kilograms. The M-2000 model has a catalog load rating of 2,300 kg at a maximum reach of more than 4,600 mm.
Dimensioning the robot and choosing accessories depend on a detailed specification of requirements. Robots can be designed with a camera system that identifies the workpiece being handled, assesses the position and orientation of the workpiece in the area in order to achieve a secure grip on it, and with other accessories. The portfolio of FANUC robots includes a collaborative robot that meets the highest safety criteria.
