iPad does not connect to the machine. Screen remains gray and shows no values.
Possible Causes & Resolutions:
Battery of IPC is empty when:
Note the adjustment of the clearance of the roller after the BIG8 monobloc cutting heads is ELEMENTARY to prevent bow cuts!
Check if the roller is not “tilted” (and thus one-sided “in the air”), refer also to manual of your slitter how to adjust the roller.
Preparing of LAN or WLAN access:
How to start panel/HMI software:
Note: Panel Software is starting in Demo mode and does work for 60min only. After that it has to be restarted. To run the HMI without time limit you need a new license or if the original panel is not in use anymore the license can be transferred with the designated form:
Setting up of a new device in case of an unserviceable device:
! Attention ! The recipe from the unserviceable device is lost.
Check function of the reed sensors B256, B257, B258 and B259.
You can find them on the cylinders of the magnetic conveyor (Y125) and transport roll (Y124). Manually activate the two cylinders on the valve block and adjust the reed sensors if necessary.
Refer also to the pneumatic diagram here.
Check the transport rings on the knives: If the rubber is too small (due to heavy wear) conical or much bigger (if no original spares are in use) cutting tolerances can be negatively affected!
2. The bearings of the roller cutter have play => they need to be free of play!
3. The roller cutter shaft is heating up differently!
a) Something touches the roller cutter => slowly turn the roller cutter by hand
b) the bearing is heating up too much => bearing defect!
Switch the battery “ON” on the backside of the touch-panel.
Start the touch-panel.

Do not push the load button. In this case you load an empty recipe and all parameters are set to 0 and you are not able to set back!
Choose a free memory space.

Push the „SAVE” button and a keyboard field will appear.
Make sure that the lateral, adjustable top guides (picture) are set correctly in lateral position as well as in height. They shall guide and hold the stripes as flat as possible over both sensors B260 and B261. Both sensors need to be reached at same time, otherwise the error will occur.
If the lateral guide is too far away from the sensor, the sheet might bulge. Therefore move the lateral guide closer to the sensor.
Do not loosen the screw marked red. The standard setting for top guide should be approx. X = 72 mm.
If you have too few magnets, it might cause angularity problems!

NOTE: The SQM measuring device can only detect “angular” cutting errors!
– bus connector limit switch not set correctly – address and dip switches not set according
to the electrical scheme (bus subscriber) – wire defect
– bus connector defect
– bus modul or subscriber defect.
To narrow the error you have to check the status with all the subscribers.
To test, switch the limit switch into the bus connector => the bus runs now to the corresponding subscriber, e.g. “Lenze inverter” which the LED flashes yellow.
If you are able to narrow in the error, exchange the corresponding components.
Do not forget to set the parameter and the dip switches accordingly. The parameters are mentioned in the electrical scheme!
BF LED (red) not active
LED upper-left must light up (green)
LED upper-right must be flashing (yellow)
Error LED not active or no error code profibus
The setting gauge allows faster adjustment of the blank magazine. This file can be used as a template for individual manufacturing according to specific formats.
To remove the used cutting blades, two spherical clamp screws M6 (8) have to be loosened. The steps for the fitting of the fixing plate (4), which is part of the standard tools delivered with every slitter, are:
During the assembly of the new cutter blades (2) check that the ahead running blade is on the motor driven cutter shaft (7). See picture no. 3
Nobody should start the unit during the set up. The emergency button should be pressed down, the key-operated switch taken away from the slitter.
Non-compliance of this instruction will cause cutter blade damage or blocking of shafts.
