Bottle Filling Machines
From cola to cough syrup, your bottle filling machine needs to be properly synchronized just to get the bottle to the nozzle. The many factors in play can create difficulty when considering all the moving parts, the high speed involved, constant flow rates, and the continuous motion of your conveyors. To help meet your needs, Mitsubishi Electric designs sophisticated, yet cost-effective control systems that improve performance and diminish errors of your bottle filling machines.
SOPHISTICATED CONTROLS WITH HIGH-SPEED NETWORKS
During a bottle filling process, it is critical that liquids are deposited accurately and nozzle heights are precise, which requires advanced and dependable controls that can coordinate system components at high speeds. Mitsubishi Electric’s motion controller CPU intelligently controls cam profiles with software systems. This leading-edge CPU, which is based on Mitsubishi Electric’s iQ-R modular PLC series, reduces errors and profile deviations. Our flexible software adjusts to various bottle sizes and does not require an entire system overhaul.
The motion controller on the iQ-R Series platform controls high-speed servo drives, which ensures accurate synchronization of rotational conveyors, nozzle controls, and liquid pumps. These controllers work with CC-Link IE, an open device-level network, which ensures bottle feed rates retain speed and accuracy. The iQ-R Series is also compatible with upper-level systems through an Ethernet option module, which feeds real-time production data into ERP/MRS systems. This removes the need to rely on statistical data to make decisions because continuous monitoring allows you to gain insight into your bottle filling performance.
