Automation at Nestle brings back baby food line
A range of shelf-stable, microwavable, ready meals for babies and toddlers showed promise a few years ago. But packaging operations had to be optimized to make it viable. In the small German village of Werk Weiding about an hour’s drive from Munich is a perfect example of just what automation and machine vision inspection technology permit a food manufacturer to do.
Trends in sensors are affecting automation
Advances in sensor technology are improving the handling of non-rigid packages, quality control, and track-and-trace applications. Renee R. Bassett, Deputy Editor of Automation World, recently talked with Mark Lampert, Business Development Manager at Banner Engineering, about how packaging machinery builders are meeting the needs of CPG companies by delivering improved sensing and communication technology.
Hybrid servo system brings positioning accuracy to palletizing
The L7 palletizer has standard AC motors and a machine control code accessed on a familiar PLC interface. But servo drives in place of VFDs bring big benefits. With its L7 All Electric Palletizer, Top Tier has created a “hybrid” servo system by keeping standard AC motors, from SEW Eurodrive, but replacing Variable Frequency Drives with B&R Industrial Automation ACOPOSmulti drives in what B&R calls a “motion subsystem.”
