It takes complex motion to form, fill and seal a simple package. Webs, augers, sealing jaws and shears all need to move in perfect coordination. And they need to move at the highest practical speed, since fractions of a millisecond in motion control systems can add up to a big difference in total throughput. Don’t let worn gears, compliant transmission components, overly complicated control systems and suboptimal programming stand in the way of precision and speed.
One Development Package: Everything You Need for Better Motion
With Kollmorgen Automation Suite™, it’s quick and easy to program and coordinate precise motion across your machine. Use industry-standard IEC 61131 – or use our drag-and-drop Pipe Network™ programming environment, graphical cam editor and other visual tools. They’re designed with full integration and ease-of-use in mind, so you can build your ideal motion and automation programs faster, with greater coding accuracy and quality.
Fewer Parts for a Faster Build and Higher Performance.
Simple, powerful programs deserve to run on a simple, powerful machine. With the industry's most precise and responsive hardware, Kollmorgen delivers optimal performance in a machine that's easier to build and maintain. Take a look at our AKD PDMM® drive, for example. Within a single housing, it combines best-in-class AKD™ servo drive performance along with Kollmorgen Automation Suite™ master control for up to 7 additional AKD™ axes. So your machine is simpler and more cost-effective to build, without the extra hardware, cabling and latency of a separate control system.
