From food processing through pharmaceuticals to electronics, efficient handling systems for parts management play a vital role in many different branches of industry. An automation solution for a 3-axis palletiser based on Siemens S7-300 hardware was developed by futronic to meet the special demands of modern facilities in the most diverse sectors. High performance servo drives ensure high travel speeds and repeatability. Ethernet and Profibus enable flexible integration into the local IT infrastructure. The palletiser can be taught new pallets in a few simple steps. The defined parameters are stored in a database and accessed again on a TP177 control panel.
The system’s built-in functions can be freely configured, e.g.
