Cama showcased its new IF318 machine, a “pitch-less” monoblock platform for robotic carton forming, loading, and closing, at interpack 2017.
Rockwell Automation and Microsoft also demonstrated virtual design on a Microsoft HoloLens headset. A mixed reality experience was created with Cama machine, to introduce the future virtual service and training on Cama lines.
Cama’s development of a Digital Twin for the machine—with a Pack ML-compliant user interface that incorporated condition based maintenance and predictive maintenance capabilities—showed Cama’s vision of the Industry 4.0 concept.
In Rockwell Automation’s “Best Future Machine Award 2017 contest,” Cama rated highly in four out of five categories (modular machines, smart machines, sustainability and traceability, and product safety). Cama won the ease of use category and overall competition.
The Italian company tripled the number of visits to its stand, compared to the last interpack exhibition.
