Paiste: Mechanical and electronic total revision of a special machine
Paiste is one of the world's leading manufacturers of drum cymbals. The special Durrer machine had performed outstanding services for over 25 years. Durrer's tasks in the total revision included project management, technical clarifications, analyses, the development of revision options, and a detailed cost estimate.
Finally, as part of the revision work, the old relay control system was replaced by a modern PLC control system and the hydraulic drive system by modern servo technology. The mechanics and hydraulics were completely overhauled, and the documentation was updated.
The revised machine also makes a more contemporary visual impression.
