Form, Fill & Seal machines need to perform several complex motions: pulling film with positive control and minimal stress, cutting and forming at high speeds, and moving and sealing product without slowing down.

From individual motors and drives to complete packaging automation, Kollmorgen’s integrative motion control solutions can increase throughput, drive more product per minute, and create more repeatable and accurate performance. They can be used with a variety of bag styles and integrate with several filling options, and with Kollmorgen’s expertise, it’s possible to upgrade existing systems to go faster without having to changeover or redesign the entire system.

Scalable architectures, flexible machines

The rise in consumer demand is driving the need for more throughput, more product per minute, and more repeatable and accurate performance. To meet this rising demand, the industry is moving toward more integrative and automated technologies to deliver better safety, performance and efficiency. Learn more about the latest technologies, trends and challenges facing the packaging machine industry and how Kollmorgen is leading the industry in motion innovation and design.

Take Control of Your Machine’s Motion

Machine performance needs to do more than look good on paper. It needs to create high-performance motion without sacrificing time and money. In our webinar “Taking Control: How to Create High Performance Motion in Your Machine”, you’ll learn:

  • How high-performance motion creates ready to use parts and products
  • Which controllers the machine requires: machine, motion, or both
  • Why and how the performance of both individual components and the system matters
  • How to select controllers and components

Accelerated Development

You know that a truly differentiated, high-performance machine can accelerate development, increase throughput, and maximize overall equipment effectiveness. But knowing the application requirements and which motors and drives systems are needed is completely different. Motioneering by Kollmorgen is a servo selection software that can help find the right combination of drives and motors, determine the scale of your project, and make sure the machine will be safe and reliable.

AKD-N Decentralized Servo Drive

The AKD-N decentralized servo drive reduces cabinet space and opens the way to a smarter machine automation with 80% less cabling. Typical applications for the AKD-N are packaging machines and production machines in food and beverage industry.

  • IP67 drives can be mounted to machine, outside the control panel
  • Reduced cabling because DC, network, power supply, I/O level as well as safety (STO) run in one cable
  • More flexibility in machine design, can be “cold plate” mounted
