Wintriss Automation Controls
The Wintriss SmartPAC® 2 press automation control integrates programmable limit switch,
die protection, clutch/brake control, tonnage signature analysis, and automated setup
of counterbalance and shutheight into one control. The SmartPAC 2 features a large color
screen, advanced communications, superior graphics, and the most user-friendly operator
interface in the industry. Its built-in Ethernet capability allows you to view the press
status and other information from your networked controls over the World Wide Web. No
special software is needed. All you need is a remote connection to your in-house network
and a web browser. The SmartPAC 2’s Info Center feature allows you to display setup
sheets, part drawings, and other information right at the press.
Press operators can use the SmartPAC 2 to send text messages to e-mail, pagers,
text-enabled cell phones, etc. When your press needs the attention of maintenance,
tooling, or other personnel, the operator simply selects the name of the person to
be contacted and sends a message. In addition, the SmartPAC 2 can send status and
diagnostic information to the Wintriss Tech Support Group—giving our industry-best
support staff even more tools to help you with your application and troubleshooting
Wintriss also offers stand-alone die protection, tonnage monitoring, and programmable
limit switch systems.
