B&R’s new software component for easy access to temperature control

Precise control of temperature processes

240

B&R’s mapp Temperature offers temperature control that combines maximum usability and powerful control algorithms. Integrated simulation capabilities allow virtual commissioning in minutes. mapp Temperature also provides heating current monitoring.

With mapp Temperature, it is possible to define zones and groups for temperature control. A zone is a unit consisting of an actuator, a temperature process and a sensor for measuring the temperature. Multiple zones can be combined into a physical group and controlled and optimized together. This gives the user maximum flexibility and scalability to meet any temperature control requirement.

If applications cover a wide temperature range, simple tuning is often not sufficient to optimally adjust the parameters. mapp Temperature therefore includes a multi-stage autotuning process. The user can define several operating points and optimize them individually. The integrated simulation capability enables simple virtual commissioning without any hardware. This option makes it possible to test the application’s logic, error handling and HMI system in advance to significantly accelerate on-site commissioning.

B&R’s temperature control system also offers heating current monitoring to enable early detection of faults through predictive maintenance. By monitoring the current of the heating elements, it is possible to react to a fault at an early stage without stopping the entire process. This ensures a high level of operational reliability and helps prevent extended downtime.

The impact, resilience, and growth of responsible packaging in a wide region are daily chronicled by Packaging South Asia.

A multi-channel B2B publication and digital platform such as Packaging South Asia.is always aware of the prospect of new beginnings and renewal. Its 16-year-old print monthly, based in New Delhi, India has demonstrated its commitment to progress and growth. The Indian and Asian packaging industries have shown resilience in the face of ongoing challenges over the past three years.

As we present our publishing plan for 2023, India’s real GDP growth for the financial year ending 31 March 2023 will reach 6.3%. Packaging industry growth has exceeded GDP growth even when allowing for inflation in the past three years.

The capacity for flexible film manufacturing in India increased by 33% over the past three years. With orders in place, we expect another 33% capacity addition from 2023 to 2025. Capacities in monocartons, corrugation, aseptic liquid packaging, and labels have grown similarly. The numbers are positive for most of the economies in the region – our platform increasingly reaches and influences these.

Even given the disruptions of supply chains, raw material prices, and the challenge of responsible and sustainable packaging, packaging in all its creative forms and purposes has significant headroom to grow in India and Asia. Our context and coverage engulf the entire packaging supply chain – from concept to shelf and further – to waste collection and recycling. We target brand owners, product managers, raw material suppliers, packaging designers and converters, and recyclers.
