In the consumer packaged goods industry, a product's packaging plays a crucial role in its success. As the intermediary between consumer and product, packaging must strike a perfect balance between functionality and design, and it must do so within the constraints of technical and economic feasibility. To achieve harmony between all of these competing factors, you need packaging machines that are extremely flexible and fully automated. You need packaging lines that synergize all the benefits of state-of-the-art motion control, robotics, safety, image processing and IT connectivity.

"We use a large number of format-specific cam profiles, which need to be scaled and switched out while the machine is running. This is extremely challenging. Thanks to POWERLINK, we're able to vary the machine cycles even at speeds of 600 shrink-wrapped packages per minute."
Ulf Leineke, Electrical and R&D Manager
"B&R offers the flexibility and technical expertise necessary to make our packaging machines as competitive and successful as they are."
