Remote maintenance against standstill

Standstill of machines in the production chain is always connected with loss of time and turnover. In the worst case, the whole production comes to a standstill. That is why all Gerlach machines are equipped for remote maintenance access. Remote access is via the Siemens PLC configuration software. Our specialist team of five technicians and three electrical engineers is able to access the plant parameters even remotely and initiate fault analysis. Errors that occur are then localized, the cause is investigated, and removal measures are initiated. The standstill of the machines is then reduced to a minimum.

Personal coaching for more competence

For each of our plants, technicians on site receive intensive training from our service team. This has the great advantage that your in-house employees are able to take on small maintenance tasks independently. For more extensive problems they can implement the instructions of our technicians quickly and competently. With the expert online support many error messages are remedied quite easily. The entire service process is simplified by means of redundant machine operating concepts, which also control individual machines in the overall line concept of neighbouring machines. With any urgent on-site operations , our service team will be at your side with advice and assistance very quickly.


Hot air shock channel type 111

With the diverse options of our hot-air shock channel type 111, we offer a compact and flexible unit. By using special materials, shock temperatures of up to 550 °C can be generated. The accelerated hot air flowing turbulently in the duct generates the fastest possible heat transfer. For further performance improvement, all our pre-shock variants can be optionally added.

Cooling channel type 179

Specially designed surge nozzles characterize our cooling channel type K179. Even in extremely polluted and calcareous water, the cooling function is maintained by the permanent water flow. Additional stowages allow the profile to be submerged and guarantee good heat dissipation. The built-in blow-off stations with rigid and flexible nozzle systems ensure perfect drying even for complicated profiles. The use of heat exchangers for connecting existing cooling systems is self-evident.

SHF 147

With the integrated exhaust air purification (PCT) and the tried and tested recirculation system, the SHF 147 shock channel is an efficient high-performance system. Designed for high production speeds, this plant technology is predominantly used in automotive profile extrusion. The modular construction in 3 m zones consisting of shock, microwave and hot air zones is supplemented by additional options, such as selective profile transport via driven rollers or conveyor belt, as well as other additional functions. As a result, you get a smooth and matte profile surface, fine cell structure with moss rubber, as well as fast solidification of the profile geometry.

Pre-shock type P 158

Through the use of special short-wave infrared radiators, excellent profile surfaces as well as early dimensional stability with solid and moss rubber products are achieved. Characteristic for this machine is the radiator arrangement in four different planes and thereby a selective possibility of the 360 ° pre-crosslinking of the product. The machine equipment and very good power modulation, in the range 0 – 100%, enable high flexibility in production operation. For the support of the profile, removable guide rollers can be used with the possibility of an axial distance adjustment depending on the profile sag. The IR radiators are protected in all levels by special glass panes and the integrated cooling also ensures an increase in the service life.
