Bag loads of programmability

21 October 2013

Two UK plastic bag machine support specialists, Hartech Engineering and GPL Machinery, have launched a machine offering new levels of programmability and bag production flexibility.

Based on ABB's Ethernet Powerlink compatible motion control range, the new machine features all-servomotor architecture and a user interface developed from the operator's point of view.

In addition to two servomotor based axes - web feed and cut/seal - the new BBM1100 also implements servo control on a mechanically linked third axis to provide programmable 'electronic cam' control of 'picking off' the finished bags.

The axes are powered by drives from ABB's three-phase MotiFlex family, linked to the company's BSM brushless servomotors. Control is provided by the ABB NextMove e100 machine controller with a touch-screen colour operator panel.
