"A Radical Approach to Simplify Conveyor Control and Automation Productivity"

Why does engineering conveyor technology and motion control seem so complex? Why does integration with production lines take so much effort? AMK has a smart and simple way to solve these problems.

Laying out the structure and flow of conveyor systems to move product through a plant is difficult. Needing to know at any point where a product is, where a failure is and foreseeing where rerouting is needed adds to the challenge.

In this article, Tom Jensen, SVP/GM and Technology Evangelist at AMK Automation proposes a radically simple approach to solving these and other conveyor engineering issues. Tom will show how establishing standardized control structures for non-standard conveyor components, created with simple-to-connect smart drives based on a standard command concept, can dramatically simplify multiple conveyor engineering challenges.

The cell controller that manages those smart drives focuses on parameterization, not on creating a program from scratch. If the controllers have a standard program, getting multiple controllers to work together becomes easier. From design through implementation and long-term use, the flexibility and benefits could be substantial. Read the Technical Article today.
