Because B&R's ACOPOSmulti65 is a machine-mounted servo drive, the switching cabinet only contains the power supply modules and the necessary electromechanical components, making it much easier to implement modular machine architectures.
See it at PACK EXPO Booth # S-5277! The Camco RSD from DE-STA-CO is a zero-backlash, cam-actuated drive that can be used with both rotary and linear systems for accurate, smooth motions even at high speeds or with rapid speed changes.
Spee-Dee's Rotary Auger Filler is designed to accurately fill a broad cross section of products, such as spices, non-dairy creamers, coffee and cornstarch, into a variety of bottles and other rigid containers at rates of 100 to 400 units per minute.
White paper from Spee Dee discusses the application of servo controls and a new innovative funnel design to rotary auger fillers for free-flowing and non-free flowing applications. Benefits include dramatic reductions in changeover time and increased efficiencies.
