OEM’s Global Plans Aided by New PLC and Automation Software


Burr Oak Tools combines Siemens Industry's new S7-1500 PLCs and TIA Portal software to optimize production of a new fin press designed for overseas markets.

This recent design innovation allows the slit selector plate for a fin die to be correctly positioned by one person from either side of the press using a locating lever and hydraulically powered clamps.

This recent design improvement uses two rare-earth magnets to enhance cutter blade performance. Increased flexibility reduces breakage and extends cutter blade life.
