This innovative machine is controlled by an integrated B&R solution with a custom HMI panel that can be used to efficiently perform control and diagnostic tasks across the entire Krones production line. The advanced ACOPOSmulti motion control system from B&R is fully integrated with the machine automation system and connected using POWERLINK -- an open, real-time communication protocol based on standard Ethernet -- to provide safe, highly repeatable and reliable machine automation.
