FILED IN:  Controls  > Servos  > Motion controllers

Synchronized Drive Control is a ready-to-use solution dedicated to the synchronization of all motion functions, whether local or synchronous.  It can be implemented in minutes and includes comprehensive documentation.  As an open source application, Simotion SDC is immediately customizable for the printing line or converting machine’s specific requirements. Integrated WinCC Flexible HMI is ready-to-use during development, commissioning, and operation of the line as well. 

Simotion SDC can synchronize all motion functionality between multiple Simotion motion controllers over a Profinet network, allowing 100+ axes to be engaged on the system architecture simultaneously or grouped, as needed.  

This solution can be applied to gravure, offset, flexo, and digital printing presses in wide, mid-range and narrow web format, as well as a broad range of finishing equipment including binders, stitchers, inserters, collators, polywraps, conveyors, grippers and stackers.  Simotion SDC is further complemented by the Siemens Converting Toolbox for use on a full range of winding, web transport and tension management systems.
