Programmable logic controllers for machine control
There are many good programmable logic controllers and many other types of machine control systems available but the question arises: which one is best for your application? Practical experience shows that it is mainly customised control system solutions that can sustainably increase efficiency. Kollmorgen offers on the one hand traditional programmable logic controllers but also works closely with customers in the early stages of their machine development in co-engineered projects to establish the optimal solution for their particular control requirements. In this way we have developed not only programmable logic controller based customised solutions, but a wide range of application specific solutions for machine automation in manufacturing production and test, as well as other areas such as automated guided vehicle systems.
