Packaging machine OEM cuts programming time by 30 percent

A beverage carrier assembly machine builder cut engineering time by 30% with Rockwell Automation Integrated Architecture.

In 2002, Roberts PolyPro received a request to build a beverage carrier machine that would assemble two-piece cardboard open basket carriers with a volume of 425 pieces per minute. Roberts PolyPro had built two similar machines prior to this request, but they were still looking for ways to decrease programming time and boost machine performance.
