Wintriss Controls Announces a New Flagship Press Automation Controller

Smart-PAC PRO Offers Large Color Touch Screen, Remote Access and Backward Compatibility

Wintriss Controls Group announces the release of its new SmartPAC PRO press automation controller. The SmartPAC PRO features a vibrant touch screen interface, dual-core processors, user-configurable dashboards, unlimited tool setup memory, and the ability to share setups among networked SmartPAC PRO units.

The new SmartPAC PRO architecture supports advanced connectivity features such as remote access from PCs and mobile devices, email messaging, and compatibility with Wintriss’s IIoT production tracking solution ShopFloorConnect, all the while maintaining backward compatibility with all legacy SmartPAC 1 and 2 modules, including the DiProPAC die protection system, ProCamPAC programmable limit switch, WaveFormPAC tonnage signature monitor, WPC 2000 Clutch/Brake control, and others.

The Wonderware® hosting option enables the SmartPAC PRO to run independently-created third-party HMIs for associated automation, reducing the number of screens required on the press.

The SmartPAC Pro’s new tool summary screen enables users to view the entire contents of each programmed setup on a single screen, provides a place for users to place notes for the job, and can be exported to a USB disk as comma-separated values.

Users can create custom home screen dashboards to display the information they use most often. These dashboards can be named and saved in the favorites menu, and quickly recalled any time.

The company debuted the SmartPAC Pro press automation controller at Fabtech 2017 in Chicago in November.

“We saw significant interest both from current customers seeking these types of upgrades and new prospects,” said Mark Hatch, President of Wintriss Controls. “Customers who have come to appreciate the reliability of SmartPAC controllers will find a host of new features that further improve their metal stamping operations.”
