Schneider Packaging Equipment: Auto-adjust changeover solution
See it at PACK EXPO Las Vegas Booth #2525! Schneider’s ProAdjust, an innovative add-on solution that automatically adjusts the change-over points of most machines, helps make changeovers fast, accurate, and repeatable which can improve overall equipment effectiveness (OEE), and lower costs.
Compatible with most machinery, the self-contained ProAdjust system consists of a controller and integrated PowerPacks that provide the motion. The easy-to-implement system is scalable from one to hundreds of adjustment points. Wiring is plug-and-go, and no programming is required. ProAdjust uses a simple point and click touch screen interface for one-time machine setup, and features an easy setup for creating and editing recipes.
The ProAdjust integration is completed on-site and requires no middleware or manual adjustments to achieve consistent, precisely aligned, automatic adjustments of machine change-over points. This helps increase throughput, and eliminate mistakes and excessive change-over time.
ProAdjust can be added onto new equipment from an OEM as a low cost option, or older existing equipment as a field retrofit.
