Motion control solutions - product synchronisation

Back to index

This application makes use of the flying shear functionality within Mint (FLY command). The icing dispenser is synchronized with the conveyor speed to hold position to the cakes on the belt. This application also makes use of the motion controller's high speed position latch capability to accurately detect the position of the cakes on the conveyor belt.

Special features used:

  • Auxiliary encoder for product synchronisation
  • Built in software flying shear (flying knife) for position synchronization
  • High speed position latch to accurately measure product position
