PC control technology applied in the field of packaging machinery

[April 17, 2008, Shanghai] Beckhoff first exhibited their automation and industrial solutions for the packaging industry at the Interpack 2008 exhibition. At this International Trade Expo, packaging machinery in the fields of food, beverage, medicine, cosmetics and non food consumer goods were mainly displayed. For this reason, Beckhoff provided a general and reliable control platform based on PC. At the Beckhoff booth, people mainly focused on the application fields of industrial PC, automation, motion control and high-speed fieldbus system EtherCAT, especially small and medium-sized component suppliers

through Beckhoff's PC based control technology, the whole process chain of the packaging production line can be automated: all processes - from loading, forming, sealing, labeling, containerization and repacking to palletizing can be fully automated by using industrial PC and TwinCAT automation software as control platforms

open automation technology that can meet the requirements of all levels

beckhoff provides open and highly flexible automation solutions based on PC based control technology. The upgradeability of hardware and software components makes it possible for customers to customize solutions. Compared with traditional controllers, it can greatly improve the productivity and flexibility of packaging machinery. Beckhoff's product range includes high-performance industrial PCs, various electronic i/o terminal modules, EtherCAT high-speed fieldbus, TwinCAT automation software and flexible deployable servo drive technology. TwinCAT integrates PLC and motion control functions to control each process step of packaging machinery with high performance. In addition, it can also provide various software modules for different specific packaging tasks: electronic cam disc, which conforms to VDI 2143 sports rules, Caixin reporter learned during the interview of the national "two sessions"; It is used for the 'flying saw' that synchronizes the packed goods with the mechanical position and speed and the multi axis interpolation movement

ethercat – i/o system with the best performance

the foundation of ultra-high speed remote communication is EtherCAT Industrial Ethernet system, which is very suitable for packaging machinery. The rapid communication between i/o signals and controllers - without special hardware - provides machine manufacturers with unimaginable possibilities: multi axis motion control is synchronized by the clock after precise measurement through distributed EtherCAT, which can be accurate to nanoseconds

speed control technology greatly improves the efficiency of the machine

through XFC Technology (speed control technology), Beckhoff presents you a new fast control solution: XFC is based on the optimized control and communication architecture, which includes an advanced industrial PC, ultra-high speed I/o terminal module, EtherCAT and TwinCAT. This technology provides the possibility to carry out the most advanced process optimization, and significantly improves the efficiency and accuracy of packaging machinery. In this way, the distributed clock function allows high-precision color code control. For example, the timestamp EtherCAT terminal module can provide extremely fast contact probe input with an input response time of 1 μ s。

about Beckhoff

Beckhoff Automation Co., Ltd. is headquartered in Weill, Germany. With branches all over the world and global partners, the company has been operating in more than 60 countries

Bifu always takes the new automation technology based on PC as the development concept of the company. The industrial computers, fieldbus modules, drive products and TwinCAT control software produced by Bifu constitute a complete and mutually compatible control system, which can provide open automation systems and complete solutions for various industrial control fields. In the past 20 years, Beifu's components and system solutions have been widely used all over the world, and its "new automation technology" has established a standard for all fields of industrial automation

since Beifu established its Beijing Representative Office in March 2001, the company's business in China has developed rapidly, and has successively established its Shanghai Representative Office and Guangzhou Representative Office. As a variety of new products and technologies with good cost performance continue to enter the Chinese market, its concept of daring to break the traditional control mode and vigorously promoting the new technology of C control throughout the United States has been accepted by more and more Chinese users.
