Project Synopsis

Automation system for High speed Vertical Tubular Intermittent Bagging Machine using Simotion-D This is a Form, Fill, Seal system using Simotion-D425 active line module & two double motor modules. Following are the four motors for machine operation.

  1. Draw or Puller – 2nos
  2. Horizontal Sealer – 2nos

For all the Drives position based Cams are generated with jerk limited profile. Due to Jerk limited profile mechanical life and smoothness of the system increases.

The Speed of the machine achieved 100 bags / min for 500gm. Material.  WinCC Flexible TP177B is used as HMI Interface on MPI port of Simotion D-425.The print mark correction logic also implemented to achieve optimum performance of machine.

The scope of work included:

  • Design of control systems.
  • Software development & Commissioning
