LW Graphics Systems has introduced a newly designed conveyor control upgrade system for GMA NewsGrip conveyors. The new GMA PLC control upgrade platform is based on the successful LW Graphics PLC upgrade installed on many Ferag conveyors in production facilities across the United States.The upgrade is designed to replace outdated controls using obsolete hardware components that are difficult to operate and maintain, according to LW Graphics. The new PLC-based control system uses HMI (human machine interface) touch screens to control all conveyor functions.
LW Graphics Systems recently installed the new GMA NewsGrip conveyor upgrades at The Lakeland Ledger production facility in Lakeland, Florida. The new controls were installed on two GMA conveyors.
