Russula has been hired by Liberty Steel & Wire to renovate the two-strand wire plant in Peoria, Illinois, United States. The goal is to modernize the outdated and expensive to maintain drives and control system now in use.
The latest Siemens Simatic S7-1500 series hardware and Wonderware Intouch interface will be used to operate the upgraded areas, improving performance, facilitating training, spare parts availability, and streamlining information collection and reporting throughout the whole plant.
To save wiring and installation on-site, Russula will deliver pre-tested Sinamics drives installed in a new range of cabinets. The distribution of drive power will be used again. The new Siemens Simatic S7-1500 automation system will incorporate an existing Wonderware InTouch HMI station. For the control and supervision of the rod outlets region, new screens will be created. Additionally, a new control desk made for comfort and efficient operation will be provided by Russula.
All systems are expected to come functioning in 2023.
