B&R takes packaging machinery to a whole new level

With advancements in technology, packaging industry is gearing up for maximising machine performances. At the recent PackPlus held in New Delhi, India, B&R presented its comprehensive range of products and solutions for automating and digitising machines and factories for the packaging industry.

B&R is opening up entirely new levels of machine and line performance in terms of increased flexibility and availability at all stages from primary, secondary packaging to end-of-line solutions. B&R products make it easy to seamlessly integrate advanced automation into packaging machines, including web services, advanced motion control and robotics, safety, vision systems and IT connectivity.

To be globally competitive, manufacturers must eliminate all sources of inefficiency. Continuous line monitoring enables early identification and elimination of problems, thus, increasing efficiency and boosting production output. “With just a few mouse clicks, a convenient line monitoring system can be implemented using APROL process and factory automation system from B&R. The solution is based on OMAC’s PackML standard, which can be applied to virtually any machine,” says Dinesh Mungi, Packaging Industry expert at B&R India.

Ultimate production flexibility

Packaging lines place a stringent demand on productivity and flexibility across the board. “B&R’s adaptive machine, ACOPOStrak represents the fourth generation of packaging machinery technology, which allows cost effective mass customization. Across the globe, a number of packaging machines ranging from fillers, cappers and labelers to cartoners, assembly systems, rainbow packers and indexing systems are benefitting from ACOPOStrak,” explains Mungi. “ACOPOStrak boosts overall equipment effectiveness (OEE), multiplies return on investment (ROI) and accelerates time to market (TTM),” he further asserts.

Integrated machine vision

“B&R’s new machine vision solution can be directly integrated in a machine controller on a network, rather than using a separate vision system. It also features a powerful lighting capability. This simple implementation allows any automation engineer to develop a large portion of machine vision applications on their own,” adds Mungi. This flexible and versatile machine vision solution can be used for product inspection and position detection; raw material, quality, process and label inspection; presence check; position detection; and registration mark inspection to achieve highest quality.

B&R is an innovative automation company with headquarters in Austria and offices all around the world. On July 6, 2017, B&R became a business unit of the ABB Group. As a global leader in industrial automation, B&R combines state-of-the-art technology with advanced engineering to provide cus-tomers in virtually every industry with complete solutions for machine and factory automation, mo-tion control, HMI and integrated safety technology. With Industrial IoT communication standards like OPC UA, POWERLINK and openSAFETY as well as the powerful Automation Studio software development environment, B&R is constantly redefining the future of automation engineering. The innovative spirit that keeps B&R at the forefront of industrial automation is driven by a commitment to simplifying processes and exceeding customer expectations.
