Simple product change
Who has a machine that always produces the same thing? Changing from one product to another must not be allowed to consume too much time. Simple operation was thus the main focus when developing Xtend³. The change is completed in just two steps.
InterActive information on all connected components. Central operation of hot melt and cold glue equipment; display and operation of all hot melt parameters. Xtend³ supports functions such as: component identification for application heads, sensors, hoses, melters, input and monitoring of set-point temperatures, pump pressure, filter change cycles, glue level, maintenance cycles …
Tap on the required glue line..
…and enter the glue line data. Done!
Hot melt parameters on a big screen
With Xtend³ you can operate hot melt application centrally for the first time. On one screen, you can enter the required lengths of the glue lines and the heating times for the tank, hoses and application heads. You can also see all current values at any time, as well as any error messages. Additional entries on the melter display are no longer necessary.
The melters of the Xmelt Series detect all connected hoses and application heads by plug-and-play. The big Xtend³ screen gives you the InterActive information on all connected components. Xtend³ supports Xmelt functions such as: component identification for application heads, sensors, hoses, melters, input and monitoring of set-point temperatures, pump pressure, filter change cycles, glue level, maintenance cycles. On many machines, you have to crawl under the machine to make these settings on the back.
Central operation for hot-melt, too
Xtend³-E8 / 16 / 32 / … Glue Control
Intuitive operator guidance
For all Baumer hhs application head series
High-precision glue control; 8, 16, 24, 32, 64 channels, infinitely extendable
The Glue Control module permits path-dependent control of up to 32 Baumer hhs line or dot application heads. Operating independently of one another, each head can apply any desired glue pattern to a blank of max. 4,000 mm length with an encoder resolution of 1 mm/pulse.
DATA: Data Export and Transfer
– Data transfer to a PC
– Simple software creation
– Many tools available (Microsoft Office applications)
– Simple data export
– E-mail function
– Graphic display/conversion of statistical data, even over lengthy periods
– Visualisation, export and storage of all system data
Storage of all product and system data
Data backup on USB stick; very simple to read into further Xtend² Systems
Non-contact user recognition by RFID
Blocking of sensitive areas; you determine your security
After a start sensor (light scanner) has detected the blank, the path information captured by an encoder is evaluated, and the application head is activated on reaching the gluing position entered in the glue pattern.
At the same time, the distance between the start sensor and the head, as well as the delay between the activation signal and glue application, is automatically compensated for in such a way that the glue pattern is applied at the programmed position, regardless of the machine speed. Every head output of the controller can be individually adapted for connection of any desired line or dot application heads from the Baumer hhs range. The application heads can be equipped with sealing caps that close automatically when operation is interrupted, in order to ensure reliable re-starting of the heads.
