SERVOFEED

Product quality starts right at the feeder. The accuracy of the feed table significantly influences all following process steps of your machine: print register, die cutting, slotting, scoring and fish tailing are determined here as well as production speed and downtimes.

The EMBA SERVOFEED is the synergy of the well-proven feed technique of the RS-Feeder and latest drive technology. It will process boards of all thicknesses and qualities – even if they're not quite as flat as they're supposed to be…

A strong vacuum gives focused and flexible support to the feeding process: It can be adjusted in both, power as well as distribution to perfectly match the individual requirements of each job on your machine.

The EMBA SERVOFEED is designed to be fully modular and can be easily adjusted to match working width and room requirements of machines of all types and makes. The integration into the machine is simple: Since the electronic integration requires no mechanical link to the machine's main drive the EMBA S ERVOFEED can be installed in record time.

Using the computer control with comfortable graphic displays, all parameters can be easily entered in the operator's menu and centrally controlled: register position, motorised table movements, front gates and vacuum settings.

TSX Nano Block Upgrade

 

WARNING! Major Downtime Ahead. Unfortunately obsolescence of electronic components is nowadays a stark reality. If your McKinley is equipped with the Modicon Nano block remote I/O system (shown below), then these components are no longer available from the manufacturer. Spare part replacements are virtually non-existant.




Take control of your controls with a new Modicon TSX Micro PLC. Upgrade your Modicon Nano Block system with the Modicon Micro system from EMBA- McKinley and you will overcome the problem of unobtainable spare parts for the old Nano system.

After upgrading you will have access to both spare parts and professional support for secured future functionality.

Windows 3.11 computer - Update

 

Windows 3.11 computers are now OBSOLETE and no longer available. This means that you should give serious consideration to replacing your existing Windows 3.11 computers with a more modern version. We can offer an updated Windows version depending on your machine configuration.
