In 2002, Roberts PolyPro received a request to build a beverage carrier machine that would assemble two-piece cardboard open basket carriers with a volume of 425 pieces per minute. Roberts PolyPro had built two similar machines prior to this request, but they were still looking for ways to decrease programming time and boost machine performance.

The OEM built its first beverage carrier assembly machine in 1999 using an Allen-Bradley® SLC™ 5/04 for control. To help reduce engineering time for its second machine, the OEM relied on an Allen-Bradley ControlLogix® controller for machine control functions.
