Packaging lines demand extreme levels of productivity and flexibility across the board – from the primary and secondary solutions straight through to the end-of-line equipment. This can be achieved through a modular design with control and drive components installed directly on the machine’s frame – or even on rotating parts.
With reACTION and NetTime technology, response times in industrial automation applications drop down to 1 µs, allowing time-critical sub processes to be managed using standard hardware within IEC 61131 requirements. B&R products make it easy to seamlessly integrate a range of automation technology into packaging machines, including web services, advanced motion control and robotics, safety, vision systems and IT connectivity.
