This Logix Series upgrade (size dependent on machine) replaces the PLC 2 & 5 Allen Bradley Controllers, and the SLC family through model No. 503. The upgrade features ethernet capabilities for Thiele machines, which could be required with future HMI touchscreen interface updates.
Servo Platform Upgrade
The Servo Platform Upgrade replaces obsolete servo drives such as Indramat or Electro Craft. An Allen Bradley integrated solution, which combines servos and PLCs (Compactlogix or Contrologix) on one communication platform, is also available.
Category 3 Interlock Safety Upgrade
This is the OLD Category 1 safety circuitry, which features a door switch and safety relay.
This is the Category 3 safety circuitry, which features door switches with two redundant contacts and a monitoring relay that monitors and detects safety levels.
Light Curtain Upgrade
This upgrade is designed for areas that cannot be guarded by a light curtain, and are large enough for operators to step or reach in, thus risking injury. This upgrade will prevent machine shutdown and enhance safety.
120 V to 24 V Control Voltage Upgrade
This control voltage change will convert all voltage to 24 VDC to improve safety. This upgrade includes PLC, I/O cards, all input devices and components in electrical enclosures.
eWON Communication Link Upgrade
The eWON module links a machine’s PLC, servos, and touchscreen programs directly to the Thiele service department. This allows the service team to monitor the machine in real time, allowing for timely diagnostic services, minimizing downtime and possible service trips.
HMI Touchscreen Upgrade
The HMI touchscreen effectively replaces push-button controls. The new screens feature:
-History and diagnostic information of downtime and jams
-Preventative maintenance alerts
This upgrade may require a simultaneous change to the PLC due to ethernet connections, or multiple screens to an existing HMI setup.
Magazine Extension Upgrade
This upgrade extends the magazine up to an additional 7 feet of capacity (from 5-foot magazine to 12-foot), which equates to approximately 600 more blanks of capacity.
Product Change Upgrade
Changing package designs are a regular part of the industry. When a customer’s needs change, Thiele is here to make sure everything is quoted and nothing is overlooked. We can rebuild in the customer's facility or it can be shipped to one of our facilities for complete product change and rebuild.
Rotary Feed Upgrade
This counterbalanced rotary feed shaft is a direct replacement for the existing unit. This upgrade eliminates overhung load to reduce premature wear of bearing, chains, belts, and the entire drive system.
Rotary Tray Shaft Exchange Program
Thiele's innovative exchange program helps you reduce downtime and minimize install time. Order a complete tray feed shaft assembly for immediate delivery, and Thiele will build it and ship it to the customer's facility. Once received, the complete assembly can be replaced within hours. Finally, send the old core back for credit from the core value.
Angled Product Pusher Bar Upgrade
Thiele has redesigned these to incorporate new angles on the pusher bars. This allows for more clearance between products so fewer pusher jams occur. The new angled pusher bars are a direct replacement for existing parts.
Tray Vacuum Plenum Upgrade
This efficient 120-volt stainless steel vacuum plenum replaces the large, 3-phase remote mounted blower unit for not only efficiency improvements, but also a quieter system. The vacuum plenum assures that the trays are constantly controlled. It also eliminates the bouncing or skewing of cartons as well as misfeeds.
Low Friction Transfer Plate Upgrade
This upgrade offers easier transfer for trays from the pusher section to the pocket chains. The lower friction material allows for consistent timing of trays to the product, especially when multiple sizes are run.
Fold and Glue Rail Upgrade
This important upgrade replaces the flap cam way style of folding with a new longer folding rail. By designing it to extend further, it keeps the flaps captured when they are tucked. It also has a lower height to allow the rails to be adjusted down further and still glue properly.
Pocket Chain Rear Pad Upgrade
This upgrade is for new rear pocket pads that have a flat surface instead of a void that could catch on a tray flap. This upgrade is available complete with new pocket chain or just the rear pads.
Compression Section Extension Upgrade
This upgrade extends the compression belts from 15 inches to a total 60 inches of compression area. This eliminates any glue setup issues when running at higher speeds or when ambient temperature is high. The upgrade includes the complete assembly including gearboxes and new fold and glue rails.
Grouper Clutch Upgrade
This upgraded clutch eliminates premature clutch failures. The kit is a direct replacement and will install in hours.
Traypacker Speed Change
Thiele provides two kit options that will improve the machine's overall speed:
1) For sprocket and chain only
2) Sprocket and chain included, with new drive motor gearbox.
Envoy Mechanical Rebuild
Thiele can completely rebuild your Envoys. This includes all mechanical parts such as air cylinders, shafts, bearings, sprockets, chains, torque limiters, compression belts, and all infeed components. This can include electrical control package for state of the art controls. Thiele can rebuild it on location, or in one of our facilities.
