The Challenge: A Swaziland Upgrade Picture this: an outdated 110KW DC drive and motor system in dire need of a revamp and a company in Swaziland eager for a transformation. The mission was crystal clear – replace the obsolete with something more efficient and dependable.

The Extruder

The Personal Solution: A Customised Answer. At Motion Tronic, we don’t believe in one size fits all. We rolled up our sleeves and set to work, meticulously designing and constructing a top-of-the-line control panel. This panel was to be the heart of a new 110KW AC drive, accompanied by a specialised AC motor complete with forced cooling and encoder feedback. Every detail was crafted with care, ensuring precision and uncompromised quality.

The Control Panel

The Human Touch: People Do Business with People. Once the panel was ready, it was time for the personal touch. Motion Tronic didn’t just deliver the hardware; we dispatched a dedicated technician to the customer’s site in Swaziland. Why? To ensure a seamless transition from the old DC system to the new AC system, to make sure the client felt supported every step of the way.

The Motor

Commissioning, Connection, and Celebration. The commissioning process was no small feat. It involved reconfiguring the control signals that were initially connected to the DC drive, aligning them flawlessly with the new AC drive. This meticulous rewiring was all about preserving the system’s functionality, just as it was in the previous setup.

Testing followed, and the results were triumphant. In a surprisingly short span, the new AC extruder drive system was up and running at full throttle. The machine roared back to life, and that very evening, the client resumed production.
