Beloit Paper Machine Control System


Thread Starter

aan -

Hi All,

Right now we are on engineering stage of control system retrofit project. The project is to upgrade control system for Bel Baie IV paper machine which was made and commisioned 10 years ago by Beloit Corp (Machine No. 808).

Existing control system is based on AB Pyramid Integrator (PLC-5/250) and will be changed to AB ControlLogix.

I am asking if there is anyone on this site that has had a successful experience on control system retrofit with this paper machine.

Although I have no experience on this particular Beloit machine, I do have Beloit, Valmet, and Voith PM experience.

I have also done many Clogix conversions and have experience with PLC 5/250 (Pyramid Integrators). What is/are your questions?

Maybe leave e-mail and we can take questions off list.......

We're also looking at upgrading and replacing some Machine controls on a 10 year old Beloit Writing Paper Machine. If anyone with some experience with Beloit Machine Controls is still following this thread, I'd appreciate it if you'd contact me off-list so we could discuss it further.
