End users and brand owners are challenged to adjust to rapidly changing consumer demands and OEMs are challenged to incorporate the latest technologies to improve the effectiveness of their machines. To help machine builders and their end user customers achieve all of this, the Pak/iQ portfolio consists of products and value-added functions specifically designed to improve the performance and ultimately lower the total cost of deploying smart packaging machines.

KEY FEATURES & BENEFITS:

■ Highly integrated automation – Controls and robotics that seamlessly coordinate to work together

■ Superior machine performance – High response, high accuracy, and fully synchronized servo motion control to maximize productivity

■ Reduced development time and improved production quality – Validated function blocks, sample programs and HMI templates are available for most cut-and-seal applications

■ Easy setup and reliable tuning – Optimize the mechanical system quickly and dynamically with machine learning algorithms

■ Secure remote access – Check machine status and operation in real time from any location

■ Single software environment – User-friendly experience with fully integrated PLC and motion configuration, programming, and diagnostics
