Jan Taufer, Master of Engineering (TH), Condition Monitoring project manager, Sumitomo (SHI) Demag Plastics Machinery GmbH

Technology driver for development in the field of partially and fully electric injection moulding machines

Whether in the packaging industry, medical technology, the automotive industry, the consumables industry or the electronics sector, Japanese precision and discipline combined with German engineering skills guarantee top performance in continuous operation.

Our passion for innovation enables us every day to support our customers with system solutions and services that are perfectly tailored to their applications.

Customised innovation with the REX-12 system

The REX-12 system already convinces during installation, thanks to its fast and easy DIN rail mounting. Its minimised installation space requirement and the easy connection to the circuit protectors contribute to the small footprint of the machine.

The large number of available fuses and their compatibility with each other allows implementation of safe monitoring of the 24 V circuits as a standard. There is the option to communicate with the system control via IO link by simply changing the supply module and to monitor status data, as well as actual current and voltage values.

This way of Condition Monitoring helps detecting potentially critical conditions at an early stage and simplifies troubleshooting in the event of a failure.
