  Project Synopsis
  Automation system for High speed Vertical Tubular Continuous Bagging Machine using Simotion-D
  This is a Form, Fill, Seal system using Simotion-D435 active line module, two double motor modules. Following are the four motors for machine operation.
    1. Draw or Puller
    2. Horizontal Sealer
    3. Vertical Sealer
    4. Stripper
  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.
  Speed of the machine achieved 120 bags / min for 500gm. material when dosing system is cup filler. When dosing system is belt weigher with four heads controlled by Siwarex FTA and S7-300, the speed of system achieved is 100 bags /min for 500gm.
  Protool TP-177B is used as HMI Interface on Profibus DP of Simotion D-435 CPU.
  Technology software for Temperature Control is also used in Simotion.
  Print mark correction logic also implemented to achieve optimum performance of machine.
  Online Speed change, Seal time is done with switching cams without stopping machine.
  The scope of work included:
    1. Design of control systems.
    2. Software development
    3. Commissioning
