The in-house developed flexE12_4.0 and PC-supported control units are used. In addition to the process and measurement functions, a soft PLC functionality is integrated of which the programming language complies with the international standard IEC1131-3.
Due to the modular design of the EST control systems, it is possible to realize several different technologies such as screwing, fastening, riveting, direction, or friction value measurements with one control. For central data management, the various programs can be stored in a database and centrally managed from a master PC. This ensures a clear program assignment.
