Allen-Bradley Automation & Control Solution

Allen-Bradley Press Automation & Control

Allen-Bradley Press Automation & Control - Integrated W/ Our Press Pilot 150 Clutch/Brake Controller and PanelView HMI

Toledo Integrated Systems has been providing Allen Bradley solutions to the metal forming industry for over 13 years. In that time we have worked with all of the Allen Bradley hardware platforms including PLC5, SLC, MicroLogix, CompactLogix and ControlLogix. Our AB Maximizer TPC has many standard control and automation features but allows for easy customization and expandability.

The Max TPC is built to order with all the functionality and integration that the customer requires. This gives the customer complete control of the equipment using standard "off-the-shelf" hardware. The HMI is also selectable. Along with the standard Allen Bradley offerings for the HMI, we are capable of providing an industrial PC or a screen from a different vendor (if you have standardized on a certain screen).

Allen-Bradley - Press Pilot 150 - HMI Communications

Below is a list of the standard features and options for the AB Max TPC. The options don't stop there. The true advantage with a PLC system is that it can be expanded and customized to the customer's exact needs.

All supplied controls comply with OSHA, ANSI and CSA Z142-02 regulations for mechanical stamping presses.
