XORELLA is ready for Industry 4.0
XORELLA has been a leading-edge
manufacturer of equipment for conditioning and heat setting of
textiles ever since the company was founded more than 50 years
ago. The machines are renowned for their technology, operating
efficiency and reliability.
For customers around the world XORELLA is the preferred
partner for standard conditioning and heat-setting machines as
well as for equipment for integration in fully automatic
material handling and packing systems.
XORELLA has listened to customers’ input and reengineered the
controller and its software. Latest generation hardware is used
and software as well as visualization have been redesigned with
a clear concept in mind: Easy operation even by less experienced
staff in the mills.
There is a clear structure on all screens and the use of text
was minimized. On the right, actual hazards are displayed with
pictograms, such as high temperature in the picture below.
Handling and setting of the steaming programs was also
simplified and programs can now be identified by alphanumeric
names, maximum 50 characters.
A new interface was created to assist customers in trouble
shooting. Actual and historical data is saved and can be sent to
the Service Department for analysis and support.
Paving the way for Big Data is the most important feature of
the new XORELLA controller. It fully relies on its OPC UA
interface for connection to external systems. Customers have the
possibility to display the visualization on their own system
completely by accessing the variables provided by the OPC UA.
This considerably facilitates integration into superordinate
systems. Therefore it is possible to link the XORELLA controller
with process visualization systems provided by the main spinning
machinery manufacturers or third parties.
Visitors are invited to meet XORELLA’s team of specialists at
booth in hall 6 at booth D203 to obtain detailed information on
XORELLA machines and services.
