Whether the project is a line upgrade Boosting Productivity — Reducing Costs with high performance drives or installation of a complete process automation system, Avtron can handle the project – regardless of Aging and overworked mill equipment causes low throughput and who made the original equipment. Since 1953, we have been helping breakdowns that are much too frequent. The resulting maintenance worldwide industry solve productivity problems and reduce costs with costs are bad enough, but they are only the tip of the iceberg innovative drive systems and related automation products. compared to lost revenue and profits due to poor product quality, increasing downtime, and reduced output. With decades of experience as the manufacturer and systems integrator of Westinghouse metals industry drives, Avtron is uniquely Added to these headaches are difficulties in getting parts and mill qualified to supply process line drive and automation solutions. equipment serviced because the original manufacturers may no We designed the first Digital Front End (DFE) for drive systems, and long make that equipment or supply parts for it.

High-Productivity Processing Lines Avtron Systems with Powerful Diagnostics Process Automation System For treating and conditioning cold rolled aluminum and flat steel Avtron provides superior product quality and systems of unparalleled products, Avtron supplies the latest drive and control technologies for reliability, with the engineering capacity to design the system best processes such as pickling, annealing, skin passing, galvanizing and suited for your application. The biggest gains in productivity and color coating. To meet the productivity and quality demands on these finished product quality are often attributed to the automation lines, Avtron designs its high-performance drives and controls in a way system. Avtron PV (Performance View) automatically records events, that enables operators to supervise complex processes efficiently and status bits, drive values, and PLC data from the controllers on the control an entire inline operation.

In addition to our drive manufacturing expertise, from fractional kW to MW sizes, our application engineers have a deep understanding of the effects that motors and driven equipment have on each other. This allows us to engineer controls for the best throughput, while avoiding the kind of drive operation that leads to maintenance problems and downtime. For instance, Avtron’s Digital Front End (DFE) controller provides distributed control functionality for optimum performance and cost- savings in mill upgrades. This DFE design generally allows you to retain existing motors, generators, and/or SCR power converters and field
