Fully Automated Brochure & Book Binding

Sigloch Maschinenbau GmbH & Co. KG / Gerabronn / Germany

Sigloch Maschinenbau offers special machines for binding brochures and books. This ranges from gathering machines, adhesive binding machines, endpapering machines, to bookback gluing and back-lining machines, drying conveyors, nippers and ribbon inserting machines.

The automation is done by the modular controller XC200 from Moeller. Programming environment: CoDeSys. A Moeller XC200 is connected with several Xi/ON Remote I/O devices. Within the machine CANopen is applied to the communication of the field modules. The intelligent drives are connected via CANopen, too. The connection between PLC and operation unit as well as the connection of the machine is realized via Ethernet. The touch panels XVH300 and XV400 from Moeller are used for the human machine interface.
