Graphical process programming

With the sequence editor, users can create production sequences of any complexity as needed – right at the machine. Demanding topics such as the retraction and extension of the production, alternative behavior in case of a defect or different behavior for good and rejected parts are easy to understand for users.

During ongoing production, the user will see in real time on the screen which commands the machine is currently executing, how long these commands will take and which chain of command is responsible for the resulting cycle time.

With this information, the user can optimize the production sequence specifically with regard to cycle time and energy consumption or quickly locate the reason for a fault.

Component management

All non-primary axes of a machine, for example the auxiliary mold control, cooling air control, conveyors and reject switch, are known as components. They can be created for individual upgrades and freely configured by the user.

Newly created auxiliary controls can be used in the production process and actuated via the control panel. The name of the auxiliary control as specified by the user will obviously also be shown on the operating buttons.

Innovative control keyboard

The combination of a flat screen and a membrane keyboard is a world first that has been patented by Netstal.

The screen allows a flexible use of buttons and also allows the display of additional helpful information, e.g. the end position, the current position or the active movement of an axis.

Buttons with haptic feedback are a valuable tool and allow the machine operator to work at the machine comfortably and safely.

Graphical command parameterization

Graphical command parameterization

All movement sequences can be parameterized graphically with aXos. The well known "drag and drop" principle is used. The operator views setpoint settings in a graphical overall context and can therefore easily program efficient and resource-conserving processes.

Thanks to the "zoom" function, each individual basic value can be specified very precisely. While the machine is in operation, the current process can always be checked with an actual value curve. Programming corrections are also possible while the machine is in operation.

Innovative controller technology from Netstal

A powerful and highly versatile machine control unit is required to fully exploit the potential of our machines. The aXos controller was developed to fulfill the increasingly complex requirements of current and future production, therefore providing the basis for Netstal's highly efficient production systems.
