PC-based control for food and drink industry

With this PC Control, the entire production process can be automated with a uniform control platform: in the drinks industry from injection molding machines, e.g. for the manufacture of PET bottles, to filling plants, as well as in the food industry from the production of packaging foils to complete packaging lines. The universally applicable PC-based control technology can also play fully to its strengths in the food and drinks industry: PLC, Motion Control as well as software functions, such as electronic cam plates, are integrated on a standardised PC platform. In combination with EtherCAT, PC-based control enables higher product quality and shorter cycle times than conventional control technology. In combination with TwinCAT Motion Control solutions, the Drive Technology represents a complete, modern drive system. The AX5000 servo drives offer top performance and dynamics. In the low performance range, motion bus terminals for DC or stepper motors offer an inexpensive alternative to servo technology.
