1.0 GENERAL:

THE FOLLOWING IS A DESCRIPTION OF THE OPERATIONAL ASPECTS OF THE WRX SERIES RACK-LOADING UNITS. BOTTLE FEED FROM CLIENT WASHER/FILLER/CAPPER CONFIGURATIONS AND RACK CONVEYOR INTERFACES MAY VARY, DEPENDING ON BOTTLING PLANT LAYOUTS.

THE WRX LOADER REQUIRES ADEQUATE CLEAN, DRY AIR SUPPLY. THIS MUST BE FROM A DEDICATED LINE AND DELIVER MINIMUM 100 PSI @ MINIMUM 30CFM.

ELECTRICAL SUPPLY TO THE WRX LOADER WILL VARY DEPENDING ON THE SITE ELECTRICAL SUPPLY CAPABILITIES.

2.0 DESCRIPTION OF OPERATION – LOADER (AUTOMATIC MODE):

SYSTEM IS POWERED UP BY TURNING ON BOTH MAIN CONTROL AND CONVEYOR CONTROL PANELS

HMI WILL BOOT UP AND DISPLAY INITIAL WEBBER AUTOMATION OPENING SCREEN.

OPERATOR WILL SELECT OPERATOR CONTROL SCREEN

AUTOMATIC MODE IS THEN SELECTED

2.1 THE WRX LOADER WILL POSITION THE TOOL IN THE AUTO START POSITION.

2.2 THE BOTTLE IN-FEED GATE WILL OPEN TO ALLOW BOTTLES TO ENTER ON THE BOTTLE CONVEYOR.

2.3 THE BOTTLE CONVEYOR WILL BE RUNNING

2.4 AS BOTTLES ENTER THEY WILL PASS BY AN IN-FEED SENSOR/LIMIT SWITCH, WHICH COUNTS THE BOTTLES AS THEY PASS BY.

2.5 AFTER A 5-COUNT THE IN-FEED GATE WILL CLOSE AND THE BOTTLES WILL POSITION UNDER THE TOOL AND GRIPPER ARRAY.

2.6 AFTER A SHORT DELAY (ADJUSTABLE ON THE SET-UP SCREEN) THE BOTTLE CONVEYOR WILL STOP AND THE TOOL WILL DESCEND, VIA HYDRAULIC POWER. THIS IS NOTED AS THE “BOTTLES IN SETTLE TIME”

2.7 WHEN THE TOOL REACHES THE PICK-UP POSITION, IT WILL SETTLE ONTO THE BOTTLES AND INSERT THE BOTTLE NECKS INTO THE GRIPPER UNITS.

2.8 AT THIS POINT, THERE IS A SHORT DELAY (ADJUSTABLE ON THE SET-UP SCREEN). THIS IS NOTED AS “GRIPPERS CLOSE DELAY”.

2.9 THE GRIPPERS WILL INFLATE (INFLATION AIR PRESSURE MUST NOT EXCEED 30 PSI – WHICH IS ADJUSTED AND SET ON AN AIR REGULATOR MOUNTED ON THE TOOL ADJACENT TO THE TOOL VALVE MANIFOLD).

2.10 THE TOOL WILL THEN ASCEND – GRIPPING ALL 5 FULL BOTTLES, VIA HYDRAULIC POWER.

2.11 THE TOOL WILL REACH THE ROTATION POSITION AND AFTER A SHORT DELAY (ADJUSTABLE ON THE SET-UP SCREEN) IT WILL COMMENCE ROTATION. THIS IS NOTED AS “ROTATE START DELAY”

2.12 AS THE TOOL ROTATES IT WILL SEPARATE THE BOTTLES TO MATCH THE BOTTLE SPACING TO THE RACK CONFIGURATION. THIS SPACING HAS A MANUAL “STOP” POSITIONER THAT CAN BE ADJUSTED, AT THE FRONT OF THE TOOL. BY ADJUSTING THIS THE BOTTLES CAN BE MADE TO SPACE OUT FURTHER OR LESS AS REQUIRED.

  • (PLEASE SEE RACK SECTION 3.0 - FOR MULTIPLE RACK TYPE OPTIONS – BOTTLE SEPARATOR OPTIONS)

2.13 THE TOOL WILL COMPLETE ROTATION AND PRESENT THE BOTTLES TO THE RACK FOR INSERTION.

2.14 PROVIDED A RACK IS IN POSITION (SEE RACK SEQUENCE DESCRIBED LATER IN THIS MANUAL IN SECTION 3.0) THE LOADER WILL INSERT THE BOTTLES INTO THE RACK.

2.15 ONCE THE BOTTLES ARE PARTIALLY INSERTED THE GRIPPERS WILL DEFLATE, ESSENTIALLY RELEASING THE BOTTLE NECKS.

2.16 ONCE FULLY INSERTED, THE PLUNGER CYLINDERS WILL OPERATE AND EXTEND. THIS WILL FULLY RELEASE THE BOTTLES FROM THE GRIPPERS.

2.17 THE TOOL WILL THE RETRACT FROM THE RACK.

2.18 REVERSE ROTATION WILL COMMENCE AND THE TOOL WILL RETURN TO THE AUTO START POSITION. NOW, SHOULD ANOTHER 5 BOTTLES BE IN PLACE ON THE BOTTLE CONVEYOR, THE LOAD SEQUENCE WILL REPEAT.

2.19 DEPENDENT ON THE RACK CONFIGURATION, THE LOADER WILL PLACE SETS OF 5 BOTTLES IN EACH LAYER AND THE RACK WILL INDEX ACCORDINGLY.

3.0 DESCRIPTION OF OPERATION – RACK SEQUENCE (AUTOMATIC MODE):

3.1 AN EMPTY RACK WILL ADVANCE TO THE LOAD POSITION. THIS SEQUENCE IS PART OF THE AUTOMATIC OPERATION OF THE LOADER. IT IS EXTREMELY IMPORTANT THAT THE RACK IS FREE OF ANY BOTTLES, AT THIS STAGE.

3.2 RACK SEQUENCING IS AUTOMATIC AND CONTROLLED BY PLC LOGIC AND LIMIT SWITCH INPUTS ON THE RACK CONVEYORS. THIS CAN BE SIMPLE OR COMPLEX, DEPENDING ON SITE AND CONVEYOR LAYOUT. RACKS WILL MOVE DETERMINED BY AVAILABLE SPACE, UP TO THE LOAD AREA. AT THIS POINT THE LOADER BECOMES ‘AWARE’ OF AN INCOMING RACK.

THERE IS AN OPTIONAL RACK SELECTION CONFIGURATION THAT IS ACTIVATED NOW. THIS LOOKS AT THE RACK DIMENSION AND CONFIGURES THE LOADER TOOLING AND SEPARATION OF THE INDIVIDUAL GRIPPERS, MATCHING THE TOOL TO THE RACK POCKET DIMENSIONS.

3.3 AS THE RACK APPROACHES THE LOADING POSITION, IT WILL TRIGGER LOGIC FOR THE LOAD SEQUENCE. THE RACK WILL BE STOPPED BY A RACK STOP. THIS MAY BE BY LASER SENSOR OR LIMIT SWITCH.

3.4 SIMULTANEOUSLY THE RACK WILL TRIGGER THE RACK POSITIONING METHOD:

  • LIMIT SWITCHES, VIA A UHMW “WAND” ACTUATOR. THIS WILL TELL THE LOADER THAT THE RACK IS IN POSTION TO LOAD COLUMN 1 OF THE RACK AND SUBSEQUENT COLUMNS (2-3 OR 4 COLUMNS DEPENDING ON RACK CONFIGURATION).

  • ENCODER MEASUREMENT OF THE RACK MOVEMENT IN THE LOAD SECTION. (SEE SECTION 5.0 ENGINEERS SCREEN)

  • LASER SENSOR EVALUATING THE RACK POSITION – DETERMINING THE COLUMN POSITIONS PER ABSOLUTE DIMENSIONS.

  • ENGAGEMENT OF ‘RACK TRACKER’ – POSITION CONTROL SYSTEM – TRACKING RACK PERMUTATIONS PER LEADING EDGE.

3.5 THE RACK STOP WILL RETRACT AND THE LOADER WILL LOAD BOTTLES. (SEE SECTION 2.14)

3.6 ONCE THE FIRST LAYER OF THE RACK IS LOADED (2 SETS OF 5 BOTTLES) THE RACK WILL INDEX TO THE NEXT LAYER AND SO ON UNTIL THE RACK IS FULL.

3.7 ONCE THE RACK IS FULL IT WILL EXIT THE LOADING POSITION CONVEYOR RAPIDLY AND TRAVERSE ONTO WHATEVER CONFIGURATION OF RACK CONVEYOR IS REQUIRED BY PLANT LAYOUT.

3.8 THE SEQUENCE WILL THEN REPEAT.

4.0 DESCRIPTION OF HMI SCREENS AND FEATURES:

4.1 OPENING SCREEN

AS MENTIONED EARLIER, AFTER INITIAL START UP THE LOADER WILL DISPLAY THE OPENING SCREEN. SET UP SCREEN, OPERATOR CONTROL SCREEN OR MANUAL CONTROL SCREEN MAY BE SELECTED FROM THIS.

4.2 SET UP SCREEN

THIS SCREEN PROVIDES ADJUSTABLE VALUES FOR VARIOUS OPERATIONS OF THE LOADER. THE FOLLOWING DESCRIBES THE SECTIONS OF THE SCREEN AND THEIR USES.

4.2.1 SPEED CONTROL

THE SPEED OF 5 ASPECTS OF THE LOADER OPERATION MAY BE ADJUSTED.

  • BOTTLE CONVEYOR – FAST, SLOW AND MANUAL SPEED OF THE BOTTLE CONVEYOR OPERATION

  • RACK CONVEYOR – FAST, SLOW AND MANUAL SPEED OF THE RACK CONVEYOR OPERATION

  • TOOL ROTATION – FAST, SLOW AND MANUAL SPEED OF THE TOOL IN ROTATION PHASE.

  • ACTUATOR – FAST, SLOW AND MANUAL SPEED OF THE ACTUATOR PUSH, WHEN INSERTING TO RACK

  • TOOL – FAST, SLOW AND MANUAL SPEED OF THE VERTICAL OPERATION OF THE TOOL UP & DOWN

4.2.2. POSITIONAL CONTROL

THIS ALLOWS ADJUSTMENT OF VARIOUS POSITIONS THE LOADER REACHES DURING ITS OPERATION.

  • ROTATOR (SLOW RANGE) – IS THE POSITION AT WHICH THE ROTATION SLOWS IN EITHER DIRECTION.

  • ROTATOR (FWD & REV STOP) – THESE ARE THE POSITIONS AT WHICH THE TOOL ROTATES TO AND STOPS IN EACH DIRECTION.

  • ACTUATOR (SLOW RANGE) – THIS IS THE SET POSITION AT WHICH THE ACTUATOR PUSH SLOWS IN EITHER DIRECTION.

  • ACTUATOR (FWD & REV STOP) - THESE ARE THE SET POSITIONS AT WHICH THE TOOL ROTATES TO AND STOPS IN EACH DIRECTION.

  • PLUNGER ON – THIS IS THE SET POINT OF THE ACTUATOR PUSH WHERE THE GRIPPER PLUNGER EXTENDS.

  • TOOL (SLOW RANGE) – THIS IS THE POSITION AT WHICH THE TOOL VERTICAL MOVEMENT SLOWS IN EITHER DIRECTION.

  • TOOL (TOP STOP) – THIS IS THE UPPER MOST HEIGHT SETTING THE TOOL MAY EXTEND VERTICALLY.

  • TOOL (LOAD STOP) – THIS IS THE HEIGHT SETTING VERTICALLY, AT WHICH THE TOOL MOVES TO PRIOR TO LOADING BOTTLES INTO THE RACK.

  • TOOL (ROTATE POSITION) – THIS IS THE HEIGHT SETTING AT WHICH ROTATION MAY OCCUR.

  • TOOL (HOME STOP) – THIS IS THE HEIGHT SETTING THE TOOL WILL GO TO IN AUTO MODE, WHEN READY TO LOAD.

  • TOOL (PICK-UP STOP) – THIS IS THE HEIGHT SETTING THE TOOL WILL ADOPT WHEN SETTLING ON THE BOTTLES JUST PRIOR TO PICK UP.

4.2.3 MANUAL SETTINGS

THESE ALLOW THE OPERATOR TO MANUALLY ENTER VALUES FOR WHAT BOTTLES MAY BE THE RACK OR ON THE BOTTLE CONVEYOR.

  • SET BOTTLES IN # - ALLOWS THE OPERATOR TO ENTER A VALUE IF THERE ARE ANY BOTTLES ON THE BOTTLE CONVEYOR, MANUALLY, BEFORE RESUMING IN AUTO MODE.

  • SET COLUMN # - ALLOWS THE OPERATOR TO ENTER A VALUE REPRESENTING THE RACK COLUMN OF A PARTLY LOADED RACK, MANUALLY, BEFORE RESUMING IN AUTO MODE.

AFTER ENTERING THESE VALUES, THE OPERATOR MUST “SET THE RACK” AND “SEND TO PLC” SO THAT THE LOADER KNOW THESE VALUES AUTOMATICALLY AND CAN RESUME OPERATION FROM THE PROPER POINT.

4.2.4 TIMER SETTINGS

THESE ALLOW ADJUSTMENT TO TIMING OF THREE KEY OPERATIONS OF LOADING IN AUTO.

  • GRIPPER CLOSE DELAY – ALLOWS A TIME DELAY PRIOR TO GRIPPER CLOSING ONTO BOTTLES (SEE SECTION 2.8 IN AUTO OPERATION.)

  • BOTTLES IN SETTLE TIME - ALLOWS A TIME DELAY AFTER 5 BOTTLES ARE COUNTED IN THROUGH THE IN-FEED, PRIOR TO THE TOOL DESCENDING (SEE SECTION 2.6 IN AUTO OPERATION.)

  • ROTATE START DELAY – ALLOWS A TIME DELAY AFTER THE TOOL ASCENDS, BEFORE ROTATION BEGINS. THIS ALLOWS THE TOOL TO CLEAR THE BOTTLE CONVEYOR BEFORE ROTATING. (SEE SECTION 2.11 IN AUTO OPERATION.)

ADDITIONALLY, THERE ARE BUTTONS TO ALLOW THE OPERATOR TO SELECT OR RETURN TO THE OTHER SCREENS.

4.3 OPERATOR CONTROL SCREEN

THIS IS THE SCREEN THE OPERATOR WOULD USE MOST FREQUENTLY.

HE MAY LAUNCH AUTO MODE FROM HERE. IT WILL INDICATE THE “MODE” OF THE MACHINE ON UNITS WHERE THERE ARE 3, 4 & 5 GALLON OPTIONS.

IT ALSO INDICATES RACK FILLED & BOTTLES LOADED, SINCE RESET.

ADDITIONALLY, IT GIVES A GRAPHIC REPRESENTATION OF THE RACK POSITIONS AND LOAD STATUS, DURING OPERATION.

THERE ARE ALSO BUTTONS TO ALLOW THE OPERATOR TO SELECT OR RETURN TO THE OTHER SCREENS.

3 GALLON OPTION

3 GALLON MAY BE SELECTED. THIS INVOLVES:

  • RE-POSITIONING OF THE IN-FEED COUNTER SWITCH TO THE 3 GALLON POSITION.

  • SELECTION OF 3-GALLON MODE ON THE SCREEN.

(THE LOADER WILL AUTOMATICALLY SELECT 3-GALLON OPTION – LOADING 3 SETS OF BOTTLES INTO EACH COLUMN – PICKING UP THE BOTTLES FROM THE APPROPRIATE 3 GALLON “PICK UP STOP” COORDINATE ON THE TOOL – AND PUSH THEM INTO THE RACK THE APPROPRIATE DISTANCE VIA “FWD STOP” COORDINATE ON THE ACTUATOR.)

4.4 MANUAL CONTROL SCREEN

WHEN SELECTING THE MANUAL CONTROL SCREEN, THE OPERATOR WILL BE REMINDED THAT THIS SCREEN IS TO BE USED FOR ONLY FOR TESTING AND MAINTENANCE FUNCTIONS.

YOU MAY RETURN TO THE MAIN MENU SCREEN AT THIS POINT.

IF YOU SELECT MANUAL SCREEN OPTION YOU WILL REACH THE FOLLOWING SCREEN:

THE MANUAL CONTROL SCREEN GIVES THE OPERATOR THE ABILITY TO OPERATE THE LOADER MANUALLY.

CAUTION MUST BE USED WHEN OPERATING THE LOADER WITH THIS SCREEN. THE OPERATOR MUST UNDERSTAND THE TOOL POSITION, AT ALL TIMES AND BE AWARE OF PROPER CLEARANCES WHEN MAKING MANUAL MOVES, TO AVOID DAMAGING THE LOADER.

BUTTONS ON THIS SCREEN ALLOW A “STOP ALL” FEATURE

THE LOADER MAY BE SWITCHED FROM MANUAL TO AUTO MODE, OR VICE VERSA.

FOR MANUAL SELECTION, THE OPERATOR WOULD PRESS THE MANUAL ON BUTTON.

IF UP OR DOWN MOVEMENT IS REQUIRED, THE HYDRAULIC MOTOR MUST BE STARTED, VIA THE BUTTON ON THIS SCREEN.

THE MAIN BUTTONS ON THIS SCREEN ALLOW THE OPERATOR TO MANIPULATE THE LOADER.

  • MOVE TOOL ROTATE FORWARD – ALLOWS FORWARD ROTATION OF THE TOOL.

  • MOVE TOOL ROTATE REVERSE – ALLOWS REVERSE ROTATION OF THE TOOL.

  • OPEN BOTTLE SPREADER – ALLOWS OPENING AND CLOSING OF THE SPREADER FUNCTION.

  • RACK CLAMP – ALLOWS MANUAL EXTEND AND RETRACT OF THE RACK CLAMP.

  • THE BOTTOM ROW OF BUTTONS ALLOWS FORWARD OPERATION OF ANY RACK CONVEYORS PROVIDED WITH THE LOADER.

THIS SCREEN ALSO ALLOWS THE OPERATOR TO CLEAR THE MEMORY IN AUTO MODE.

THIS CAN BE USEFUL AFTER ISSUES DUE TO ANY LOADING ANOMALY, ALLOWING ANY RACK TO BE CLEARED AND RETURNING THE LOADER TO A FRESH LOAD SEQUENCE.

5.0 ENGINEERS SCREEN

THIS SCREEN CAN BE ACCESSED FROM THE SET UP SCREEN. TYPICALLY, THE SCREEN SHOULD ONLY BE ACCESSED BY AN AUTHORIZED, WEBBER AUTOMATION INC. TECHNICIAN, OR WITH SUPPORT FROM ONE.

THIS SCREEN PROVIDES A VISUAL READING AND SETTING OF CRITICAL ASPECTS DURING OPERATION OF THE LOADER.

THIS INFORMATION IS ENTERED DURING WEBBER AUTOMATION INC. FACTORY COMMISSIONING. THE DEFAULT SETTINGS SHOULD BE RECORDED. SHOULD ANY VALUES BE ALTERED, FOR WHATEVER REASON, IT MAY BE NECESSARY TO RETURN TO THESE FACTORY SETTINGS.

5.1 STRING POT SET UP – PROVIDES INFORMATION ON THE THREE MEASUREMENT DEVICES ON THE LOADER:

  • ROTATOR – ACTUAL POSITION & 0-10V DIMENSION SETTINGS.

  • ACTUATOR - ACTUAL POSITION & 0-10V DIMENSION SETTINGS.

  • TOOL – UP AND DOWN AXIS - ACTUAL POSITION, UPPER AND LOWER LIMIT SETTINGS & 0-10V DIMENSION SETTINGS.

5.2 COLUMN POSITIONING – PROVIDES SETTINGS FOR THE RACK COLUMN

WHEN THE RACK POSITIONS BETWEEN COLUMNS THE OPERATOR CAN ADJUST FOR ACCURACY. BY CHANGING THE DIMENSIONS FOR THE COLUMN SLOW AND FINAL POSITIONS, THE RACK POSITIONING CAN BE FINE TUNED FOR ALIGNMENT WITH THE LOADER TOOL.

THESE DIMENSIONS RELATE TO ACCURATE PULSE COUNTS BY THE RACK POSITION ENCODER. THESE PULSES INDICATE IN THE BLACK BOX ILLUSTRATED ABOVE, AS THE RACK MOVES INTO POSITION.

THE PULSES PER MM SCALE FACTOR IS DISPLAYED, SO THE OPERATOR CAN MEASURE AND ALIGN THE RACK/TOOL ACCURATELY.

5.3 THE ACTUATOR AMPS IS MONITORED AS PART OF A SAFETY FEATURE INCORPORATED DURING THE ACTUATOR EXTENSION, WHEN LOADING BOTTLES INTO ANY RACK. SHOULD THERE BE AN ISSUE, SUCH AS BUT NOT CONFINED TO:

  • INCORRECT RACK ALIGNMENT

  • DAMAGED RACK

  • ITEMS OR OBSTRUCTIONS IN RACK

  • DAMAGED BOTTLE BEING LOADED

  • TOOL MIS-ALIGNMENT

  • OTHER

THE AMPS ARE DISPLAYED DURING THE ACTUATOR OPERATION.

THE OPERATOR CAN SET A THRESHOLD BETWEEN THE 0V AND 10V SETTINGS

  • MAX AMPS – WILL SET A THRESHOLD AT WHICH THE LOADER WILL ALERT

  • MAX TIME – IS THE TIME SETTING AT WHICH THAT MAX AMPS THRESHOLD REGISTERS FOR.

THE LOADER WILL REGISTER A PROBLEM AND ALERT ON “ACTUATOR FAILED TO PUSH”.

THE OPERATOR WILL HAVE AN OPTION TO CORRECT THE ISSUE AND CONTINUE TO LOAD.

THE SCREEN DISPLAYS OPERATOR OPTIONS AND CONTROLS IN THIS ALERT MODE.

OBSTRUCTION MAY BE REMOVED OR THE RACK MAY BE RE-POSITIONED BY OPERATING RACK E IN FORWARD OR REVERSE MODE, UNTIL THE RACK IS ALIGNED CORRECTLY. AT THIS POINT PRESSING THE YELLOW BUTTON WILL CONTINUE THE LOAD FROM ITS PREVIOUS POSITION.

SHOULD THE RACK BE REPOSITIONED, THE OPERATOR CAN SET COLUMN AND BOTTLES IN INFORMATION VIA MANUAL SETTING, SEND TO PLC AND THEN PRESS THE YELLOW BUTTON TO RESTART AND THE LOADER WILL CONTINUE TO LOAD THE RACK FROM THAT POSITION. NORMAL AUTOMATIC OPERATION WILL RESUME.

6.0 MAINTENANCE

VERTICAL MOVEMENT OF THE LOADER TOOL IS VIA HYDRAULIC POWER UNIT. CONTROL OF THIS IS VIA PLC AND STRING POT. POSITIONING. ANY REPLENISHMENT OF HYDRAULIC OIL SHOULD BE ISO 46 (SAE EQUIVALENT 20). A FULL RESERVOIR IS EQUAL TO APPROX 25 GALLONS.

THE LOADER OPERATES WITH A SERIES OF FLANGE BEARINGS IN VARIOUS LOCATIONS. THESE REQUIRE LUBRICATION ON A REGULAR BASIS WITH MULTI-PURPOSE SYNTHETIC POLYMER GREASE, VIA GREASE NIPPLES.

  • 4 ON THE BOTTLE CONVEYOR

  • 8 ON THE MAIN TOOL FOR ROTATION.

  • 2 ON THE ACTUATOR MOTOR DRIVE SHAFT.

THE LOADER OPERATES WITH A SERIES OF LINEAR SLIDE BEARINGS. THESE REQUIRE LUBRICATION ON A REGULAR BASIS WITH MULTI-PURPOSE SYNTHETIC POLYMER GREASE, VIA GREASE NIPPLES.

 12 INSIDE THE MAIN TOOL.

 4 ON THE MAIN TOOL LIFT MECHANISM FOR VERTICAL LIFT

 4 ON THE ACTUATOR MECHANISM

THE LOADER HAS TWO RACK AND PINION MECHANISMS THAT REQUIRE LUBRICATION ON A REGULAR BASIS. ANY MULTI-PURPOSE ANTI-SIEZE OR GREASE LUBRICANT MAY BE USED. THESE ARE LOCATED ON THE DRIVE OF THE ACTUATOR PUSH MECHANISM.
