Our regular e-newsletter covers product updates and new products in the MINT motion range and related ABB products. In addition there are technical articles, solution overviews for typical applications as well as videos of applications, product overviews and occasional bit of fun.
Sometimes referred to as horizontal form fill & seal machines (HFFS), flow-wrappers range from simple, low-cycle rate, machines with start-stop motion, to high-speed continuous processes that combine position latching, material cut & seal, CAM motion and precise tension control - as well as recipe storage and upstream networking. Our flow wrapper solutions overview discusses how ABB motion can provide the answers, whatever type of machine you need to build. Read more
Rotary knife systems are used to cut a continuous feed of sheet material to a specific length, often with reference to a precise registration mark. The resulting advance/retard and position/velocity profiles can be tricky and typical motion controllers will use complex CAM functions to implement them. MINT controllers provide a much simpler and more flexible method of achieving this with the FLY command. Read more
