With its upgraded MERC 2.0 machine control software, W. MÜLLER GmbH is increasing the capability of its highly specialised retrofit extruder heads and extruders
High-performance blow moulding machines have become increasingly complex in recent years – this becomes most prominent in particular when existing machines are upgraded with extruders and blow moulding heads from specialist suppliers for the purpose of meeting special technical requirements (“retrofit”).
W. MÜLLER GmbH, Troisdorf near Cologne, recognised technology leader in the blow moulding retrofit sector, has upgraded its tried and tested control software MÜLLER Extrusion Retrofit Control (MERC) to meet increased customer requirements.
In version 2.0, the MERC system is far more transparent than the previous release – the machine operator sees only what he needs to see, so that serious operating errors are effectively prevented. At the same time, cost-saving remote maintenance and further steps towards “Industry 4.0” are facilitated.
