DMC to Present at Siemens Drive Innovation Days

DMC to Present at Siemens Drive Innovation Days

DMC is excited to lead a session as part of the Siemens Drive Innovation Days virtual event on April 20 at 3 p.m. Project Engineer Peter King will lead a discussion on Improving palletizing gantries with coordinated motion and integrated safety.

Presentation Topic

Improving Palletizing Gantries with Coordinated Motion and Integrated Safety
A propane tank manufacturer approached DMC with an opportunity to automate the infeed and outfeed process for the refurbishment and refueling of propane tanks. DMC regularly programs and commissions highly coordinated motion control solutions, and this application included a Siemens S7 failsafe PLC and six SINAMICS S120 drives to control three two-axis overhead gantries.

In addition to using the drive-based Safety Integrated functions in SINAMICS S120, the safety signals were sent over PROFINET with PROFIsafe telegrams and the complete control system was programmed in TIA portal. DMC delivered a well-organized, easy to maintain solution with built in diagnostics in this integrated environment.

After the presentation, Peter King will answer your questions during a live Q&A session. 

Event Info

To mark its 5 millionth installed SINAMICS S120 drive, Siemens is hosting a free online event from April 20 - 22, 2021 highlighting the applications that have led the way in AC drive system technology. The three-day, virtual event highlights how engineers use the innovative features of the SINAMICS S120 to accomplish motion control and innovate solutions. Industry experts from Siemens and its partners will showcase solutions that increase drive efficiencies, reduce downtime, and improve automation productivity.

Key take-aways from this event include:

  • Best practices for drive-based Safety Integrated
  • Multi-axis designs for handling regenerative energy
  • Remote diagnostic concepts for increased productivity
  • Utilizing the SINAMICS S120 modular concepts for retrofits
  • Expanding the flexibility for Industrial Ethernet connectivity


Register here for the free virtual symposium. We look forward to virtually seeing you at the event!
