The project included recommissioning and modernizing controls for (2) 300’ long production lines that had been idle for several years. It was necessary to upgrade the 1200 I/O PLC controls from a TI 555 platform to ControlLogix on each line. In addition, the system would require safety enhancements and new servo motion control to increase yield. The project required a single supplier for the system integration and electrical construction services needed to modernize and commission the new system.
