In 2008 Cal-Tronics Systems successfully completed a control systems overhaul on a vacuum metalizing machine at a Chicago area manufacturer.  The upgrade included two Contrex CX-1010 precision speed and ratio controllers, and two Contrex CX-1102 dual axis unwind/dancer/wind controllers.  Along with a leading brand HMI and PLC, the Contrex controllers improved the stability of the machine via tension control, thus rendering higher line speeds and better control over quality.  The combination of Cal-Tronics Systems ingenuity and use of Contrex controls has paved the way for complete overhauls to similar machines.



Recently Contrex announced the introduction of their Loyal Customer Upgrade Program.  In conjunction with this program, Cal-Tronics Systems is offering value added services such exchange units for customers with in-service controllers and the option for same-day swap-out complete with reprogramming and reinstallation performed by one of Cal-Tronics’ trained technicians.
