"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."

"B&R again showed their flexibility and commitment by modifying their standard ACOPOS firmware. As a result, we have tubular linear motors that provide very homogeneous movements with minimal power consumption, which we can now implement as a company standard."

MODULAR PACKAGING SYSTEM
"Today, our customers benefit from simple integration of individual machine components into their filling and packaging lines. A further advantage is reduced operating costs due to the sophisticated hardware solution. With the Automation Studio software platform from B&R, machine control, motion control, HMI and communication can all be handled in a single development environment. This saves time for integration and reduces maintenance costs."
