Control is a good thing

The ability to control product flow on a packaging line is essential to the overall efficiency of the line. Project leaders know that they want a smooth operating, efficient packaging line, but getting to that goal means selecting the most reliable equipment and conveyors combined with a controls scheme that interfaces efficiently between packaging machines and provides the most product control. Evaluating conveyor controls can be a difficult and time consuming process in comparing and analyzing quotations, especially when the solutions vary in components and design.

Our white paper, “Control is a good thing”, discusses the scope of design, component selection, communications, Ethernet/IP, ControlNet, DeviceNet, implementation and experience. The article also has a discussion on Trends in Conveyor Controls, written by Nercon’s electrical controls experts seeing trends in increased distributed drive systems, a rise in network drives, and a rise in Ethernet communications.
