Design of control program for filament extruder


This article is dedicated to designing a control program for a plastic fiber manufacturing machine for a 3D printer using a PLC.

At the beginning of this article is describing the current market state and a plastic filament manufacturing process. In the next part is described PLC system and software for its programming. Next a control program and his programming editor are described. Finally, the future concept of HMI interface is visualized in the form of an image.

Keywords:  control program, filament, HMI, PLC
