Our client, an OEM of machinery for the adhesive manufacturing industry, needed a low-cost automation solution to accurately cut adhesive tape and increase the production rate of a slicing machine.
The adhesive tape in its raw form is a long wrapped piece, which needs to be cut into standardized lengths. Manually performing this operation requires constant vigil of the operator, even more so if there are multiple standard lengths to be cut in a single pass of the slicing machine. Manual operation leads to errors and a slower rate of production.
Radix provided an automated solution for the slicing machine incorporating features to cut multiple standard lengths and an easy-to-comprehend interface for the convenience of the operator. The system was servo-based with Delta Servo, PLC and HMI.
A slicing machine is used to cut raw adhesive tape into standardized cut lengths. Our client required automation to cut tape into standardized lengths as well as easily change the standard length of the cut.
The automation system had to be incorporated within the compact spacing of the slicing machine. Radix provided a Delta-make servo based system with PLC.
With the PLC based system provided by us, the slicing machine cutting lengths, number of cuts and machine speed can be set by the operator. After this, the machine performs the cutting with minimum supervision and error. Provision is made to change the cutting lengths in the same pass thereby saving time and material. The servo-based system allowed smooth and quick speed transitions.
For operator convenience, the HMI was designed with a mimic to show the machine status. This HMI interface allowed the operator to quickly input settings like Chuck ON/OFF, Automatic, Manual, Start, Home operation (i.e. start from the beginning) and more.
The overall solution resulted it much higher production and overall improvement in the quality of the cut.

Our client required automation of a compactor machine which is used for compressing soil used in the construction of roads. The compression of soil is an accurate process where the number of strokes and the stroke lengths had to be precise so that the hammer compresses the soil to the desired amount.
Radix provided an automation system which allows the operator to set the number of hammer strokes as per the requirement. Post automation the machine could be stopped at any point and the soil can be checked for compactness. Our solution is designed as per customer requirement to meet the Australian and New Zealand standard of testing soil compaction and density test.
The compactor machine system comprised of a main motor for hammer action, motor for adjusting hammer position and a solenoid valve for adjusting hammer height. Depending on the requirement of the standards, hammer height can be selected prior to operation. However the system was manually operated. The machine also could be paused in between a cycle to check for compactness of the soil.
Radix solution involved PLC with 8 digital inputs and 4 digital outputs. The PLC offered an automated solution for the operator as now standards could be set instructing the machine as to the number of hammer strokes to take. The system updated the operator as to how many strokes have been taken thereby making the operator aware of the status of the soil compactness.
Soil compactness could also be checked in between a process by pausing the machine. The automation provided up to 3 standards settable by the operator saving time in case of set up change.
A Delta make HMI with keypad was used for data entry and other operation.
The entire automation system was compact and integrated within the constraints of the machine. Despite the compactness the functionality was not limited as the machine now met the Australian and New Zealand Standard of testing soil compaction and density test.
