    Cost reduction is a competitive factor. Costs such as engineering are constantly under scrutiny by packaging machine builders, while the consumer goods industry focuses on costs for procurement, production line integration, energy consumption, service, and maintenance.
    • Solutions

      MachineStruxure integrates both hardware and software products as well as the full scope of its industry-specific know-how for automating packaging and filling machines.
    • Value Proposition

      As part of MachineStruxure solution, the Modicon M221 logic controller offers best-in-class performance. Available also in book format, it requires minimal installation and offers tremendous versatility. Connect a simple remote operator panel for instant maintenance and machine visualization.

      Also, dedicated to simple machines is an architecture combining a CANopen network with the Modicon M241 programmable controller, Altivar 312 variable speed drive or Lexium 32 servo drives and Magelis STU display unit. This implementation guarantees modularity and flexibility of your installation, due  to the performance and efficiency of CANopen network.

      Reduce total cost 
      A very competitive ratio performance/cost.

      Machine Performance/Flexibility
      High level of adaptability with Modicon M241  extension modules and the CANopen openness.

      Time to market
      One software and reduce installation and commissioning time

      SoMachine combines in One single software the HMI and Controller programming tools.
      Easy and quick to connect variable speed drive and servo drives on  CANopen.
      Pre-defined application function blocks and libraries for easy  programming.
    • Differentiation
