The increasing variety of individualized and personalized packaging requires plants to offer maximum flexibility, dynamic response, and reliability in the material and manufacturing flow. From series production down to a batch size of 1: Modular solutions from Siemens for the packaging industry reduce the time to market and boost plant availability – with efficient engineering and less complexity.
Tronrud Engineering cuts engineering and assembly times in half for world’s fastest packaging machine. Construction, electrical planning, and automation pull together simultaneously.
Although the requirements for packaging manufacturers are undergoing a rapid transformation, our experts for the packaging industry are thoroughly familiar with the needs of machine builders. As a technology leader, we offer customized scalable solutions for all application areas, along with extensive local and global packaging expertise.
The advanced SIMATIC S7-1500 controllers with Technology CPUs offer an extended range of motion control functionalities. This makes it possible to implement standard, safety, and more comprehensive motion control applications in a controller in the Totally Integrated Automation Portal (TIA Portal). Together with the new and easy-to-use SINAMICS S210 drive system, all applications can be covered in the medium power range.
The expanded motion control functionalities include gearing and camming. The integrated Cam Editor offers support with the graphical and tabular configuration and the optimization of cams. It is even possible to adjust and calculate the cams in the user program during operation (e.g. during product changes).
In Version 4.5, the software for the high-end SIMOTION motion control system is equipped with object-oriented programming (OOP) as well as communications via open platform communications unified architecture (OPC UA). As a machine builder, these tools will enable you to implement larger software projects much more efficiently than before and you now have standardized access to SIMOTION data across all automation levels, including the cloud.
The modular SINAMICS S120 drive offers a wide range of perfectly coordinated components and functions, including powerful single drives and coordinated drives (multiple-axis applications) with vector and servo functionality, and enables the implementation of customized solutions.
Siemens solutions for standard packaging tasks have impressive features, including less complexity and lower lifecycle costs because they are based on standardized and perfectly coordinated components.
The modular design and ready-made easily adaptable software libraries ensure maximum flexibility and short changeover times. The open automation structures are based on cost-effective drive integration via motion control functions and PROFIdrive.
