Candy Cane Packaging: Two Axis Servo ‘registration control’ Retrofit


Shrink Wrap Registration

Horizontal film packaging requires the packaging material to be coordinated and “registered” to the material movement through the sealing machine.  Improper registration would cause the wrapper to cut and sealed without  the lable being properly centered on the package.

This mechanical machine was not originally capable of registration.  The addition of a line shaft encoder, a film tension servo and candy belt drive servo gives this machine new registration capabilities.

This software system was designed installed and debugged in less than one week, using the Kollmorgan KAS platform, with PDMM servo control, AKD Drives and AKM servo motors.
