To produce high performance packaging machines, you need a wide range of scalable solutions for synchronized multi-axis motion, PLC functionality, and robotic control – on a single hardware platform – for both complex and simple machine configurations. Our fully integrated packaging solutions deliver performance in the upper end of the range is sufficient for up to 99 servo axes or 30 robots.
Complete machine automation solution with PacDrive 3
SolutionsPacDrive 3’s proven technology provides a flexible, robust hardware platform for MachineStruxure’s logic motion automation solutions. As the new generation of the successful PacDrive M System, PacDrive 3’s scalable controller performance allows economical automation of applications – ranging from small systems with only a few servo axes to high-performance solutions with up to 99 servo axes or 30 robots.
Value propositionPacDrive 3 with LMC300C - 400C - 600C is the competitive solution for controlling a broad range of servo-driven production, assembling and packaging machines, as well as material handling equipment with up to 99 synchronized axes and high performance Ethernet based automation bus sercos III, and a full openness for a better integration of machines into production line.
PacDrive3 has pursued a technological approach designed to reduce hardware and software complexity. The consistent objective has been to decrease engineering costs for design, installation, and commissioning for efficient machines
PacDrive 3 unifies logic and motion control functionalities on a single hardware platform. This allows creating fully integrated software structures that enable modular machine designs and less time to market.
PacDrive system is a proven technology; more than 60.000 machines have already been automated among European and international companies in the consumer goods industry. PacDrive 3 is conforming to many international standards in hardware and software. The OMAC guidelines are integrated part of the
PacDrive programming concept. PacDrive also provides Software Function Blocks for implementing the Weihenstephan standard.
