HCC/KPM is the specialist for trail-blazing machine controls within the HerkulesGroup. Its line-up includes controls with intuitive operation for roll grinding, turning, notch milling and texturing as well as for loaders. Specially developed for Herkules, these controls feature a number of advantages which distinguish them from the standard controls of other suppliers. A convincing concept – far more than 1,000 HCC/KPM controls are successfully operated in the market.
The most powerful and versatile roll grinder control worldwide, the KP 10 by HCC/KPM, is available in a modernized version now and sets new standards with respect to operator friendliness. The highlight of the new control: a touchscreen that simplifies and speeds up the operation of the machine. The KP 10 control runs on a Windows 10 IoT 64-Bit operating system and a PLC based on Beckhoff TwinCAT 3.1. The industrial PC is equipped with the current processor generation CoreTM i5. Thus equipped according to the latest level of technology, the control is completely future-proof. The control panel is resistant and durable due to its closed front structure and available in either 18.5” or 24”. It can be set up in a relatively large distance to the PC thanks to its extremely robust image transmission technology.
All HCC/KPM controls are PC-based real-time controls with a Windows operating system in which the entire, complex processes of roll handling, roll machining and roll inspection are integrated. Software programming is easy to learn, since individual programming steps are provided in plain text so that no special programing language is needed. All relevant information of the machining process is displayed clearly on a screen. As all control types have the same basis, they complement each other perfectly, for example in a complete roll shop.
The network-compatible controls are programmed in accordance with IEC 61131-3 and equipped for all Industry 4.0 applications.
