Horizontal FFS machines are well suited for the packaging of individually packaged goods such as chocolate and cookies – not only in the food industry. SEW-EURODRIVE automation enables fast and simple automatic format change in this area. Manufacturers thus have different products and bag sizes perfectly under control with one packaging machine.
Corresponding software modules for cyclical and continuously running machines
One important step in the horizontal packaging process is product separation. This ensures the separation of the products and maintenance of the necessary gaps in the product stream and therefore flawless packaging.
Our MOVI-C® automation system offers ready-to-use software modules for such always recurring and already nearly standardized functions in a typical horizontal FFS machine. This makes fast implementation of synchronizing as well as continuously running machines possible. And we can fully satisfy the requirements of a horizontal FFS machine.
It doesn't get any faster than with MOVIKIT®. Thanks to our ready-to-use application-specific software modules, you do not have to wait on your machine automation any longer than on a new gearmotor. But even software developers can save a lot of time with our ready-to-use program template in the freely programmable CoDeSys environment.
Extensive drive and control functions are required for the automation of a typical horizontal FFS machine (HFFS machine). The portfolio for corresponding application-specific function blocks has a name: MOVIKIT®. The ready-to-use software modules are released with a simple parameterization. This allows the functions of individual software modules to be started up especially quickly and easily.
In addition, the software modules included in the MOVIKIT® AutomationFramework are also expandable as needed for individual functions in the machine sequence program and in the integrated drive controller. Because even software developers will get their money's worth with the IEC 61131-compliant CoDeSys environment. You can flexibly program your machines just as usual in a ready-to-use program template. You thereby gain maximum freedom while simultaneously saving a significant amount of time.
