B&R to present out-of-the-box technology ospVFFS
B&R Industrial Automation, a global leader in industrial automation, has recently launched an out-of-the-box automation solution for vertical form fill seal (VFFS) machines called ospVFFS – a scalable, configurable and pre-engineered new technology. It can be used for new as well as retrofit machines with limitless possibilities and configurations. ospVFFS enables machine builders to configure a VFFS machine within 30 minutes with various possibilities. This not only improves machine performance but also enables a shorter time-to-market. In addition, the configurable solution is Industry 4.0 ready with web-based diagnostics and secure IT connectivity over inbuilt OPC UA.
Products and packaging are undergoing changes as demand for efficient and sustainable packaging grows exponentially. By engaging in strong partnerships with their automation vendors, machine builders can keep pace with these rapidly changing needs.. "Developing sustainable packaging solutions with minimum time to market (TTM) is a challenge for machine builders. New technology must ensure efficient processing and higher flexibility, “says B&R packaging expert Dinesh Mungi. With B&R's advanced, pre-engineered automation solutions for VFFS machines, we are sure that our customers will be able to efficiently satisfy the ever changing market demands.
