B&R: Automation components for packaging lines
B&R’s reACTION and NetTime technology helps make it easy to integrate a wide range of advanced automation technology into packaging machines, reducing response times in industrial automation applications down to 1 µs, and allowing extremely time-critical subprocesses to be managed using standard hardware within IEC 61131 requirements.
The systems help integrate technology such as web services, advanced motion control and robotics, safety, vision systems, and IT connectivity into packaging applications. The systems also help improve performance of high-speed machine functions such as product labelling or the rejection of substandard products.
The company’s IP65-rated ACOPOSremote servo drives and ACOPOSmotor motor-integrated servo drives, as well as the X67 series of machine-mountable I/O and safe I/O modules can be installed directly on the machine's frame to improve performance and flexibility.
