Integrated Control Solutions, team of highly experienced engineers are fully competent in all aspects of today’s bottling and packaging machinery. Our team of experts are available to you on a call-out basis should you need them.
Whether your machine is the latest ‘Rolls Royce’ in its field or is equipment which needs re-designing and improvements, we fully evaluate each machine on an individual basis and develop the necessary requirements. The benefits quickly become clear as we help to make your line more productive, efficient and cost effective.
With more than 60 years’ combined experience within the packaging industry, our engineers provide a wide range of systems for supervision, control and quality assurance.
In today’s demanding markets for more cost effective production solutions, glass is getting even more lightweight and as a result the pressure and collision speeds imposed on the product during the production process is becoming more and more critical.
To complement the line designs and control philosophies our control panels are designed and built with ease of maintenance and follow a modular build concept.
Often with the advancement in control equipment, upgrades to existing systems prove a more economical solution to installing a new system. Upgrading of a system to include inverter controlled drives and touch-screens coupled with a new PLC rack without the expense and inconvenience of installing a new control panel and new cabling to your existing line often proves a viable and cost effective solution

ICS LINE CONTROL General Introduction
The correct tuning of the conveyor speed, particularly between the various production machines is an important factor in achieving a trouble free operation along the whole bottling line. The particularly critical points are the bottle buffers, where the transport of the bottles switches from multi- lane in a single-lane tranport, or when synchronization between two machines (Bloc-connection) is necessary. For an harmonious transport without pressure, with low noise and without gaps, we recommend our ICS-electronic speed control system
Mode of operation
The systems consists of an electronic control unit witch is installed on the conveyor or in the control panel and is connected to the line control operator control panel, During normal operation the bottle stream as well as the conveyor speed are continuously monitored by sensors. Thus the control unit analyzes always if the bottles are sliding (jamming) or if there are gaps, the speed of the motors which drive the various conveyors are regulated accordingly.
Speed control for conveyors within the bottling line to achieve:
gliding transport from multi-lane to single-lane
bloc connection between two production machines in order to aviod pressure, noise and gaps
