WHAT WE DO

We provide motion control (mechatronic) components and systems for automated machinery. This includes everything from selling components to designing and implementing full turn-key systems. We can help you design your new machine to optimize performance and cost. We've also performed many different types of machine retrofits and can help bring new life (precision, speed and reliability) to your older equipment.

APPLICATIONS

Double-Axis Rotary Die Cutter
(Knife & Anvil)

Western Printing Machinery has been a custom designer and manufacturer of finishing systems and cutting technology since 1933. WPM has locations in Schiller Park, IL and Leicester, England. WPM is a global leader in advanced inline/offline finishing systems, high speed rotary cutters, precision built rotary die cutters and custom dies and knives.

Using a CH-13113-11-2105 Cartridge DDR, we redesigned a double-axis rotary die cutting machine around the new motor.

The redesign:
Improved throughput by 20%
Reduced noise by 20+dB
Reduced parts count by 100+ parts
Increased accuracy over 10 times

Feed and Cut-off for Paper Tubes

Chicago Mailing Tube Company is a premier supplier of custom paper tubes, containers and cores, offering high quality and affordable products. Since 1902, CMT has been serving its customers from a 100,000 square foot manufacturing facility on Chicago's west side.

A semi-automatic mechanical feed mechanism on CMT's processing lines caused excess scrap and damage to finished paper tubes. Also, the tube hit a mechanical switch to activate the cut-off blade, and the switch had to be adjusted manually for different jobs.

By upgrading the machines with new control systems through IMAC's integration services, CMT significantly improved product quality and eliminated scrap. Use of Precision Technology USA's PowerLine series linear slide, Kollmorgen's ServoStar-SC series single-axis controller and GoldLine-Xt brushless servomotor allows precise positioning of the tube without a mechanical stop. The operator inputs tube length through a touch screen, allowing faster set-up times and more accurate cut-off.

High Speed Promotional Product Applicator for Printing

Hurletron designs, manufactures and integrates auxiliary equipment for the printing and converting industries. It provides process solutions in registration control, promotional product application, electrostatic tacking, web remoistening and web cooling, and electrostatic assist for gravure presses.

According to the company, the new ElectroCard® machine is the only promotional product applicator in the printing and converting industry that can apply promotional material at full press speed on heatset web offset presses, newspaper presses, and publication gravure presses on any page and in any position, without adding additional off-line operations.

This complete machine redesign, including the integration of Kollmorgen's ServoStar-SC series, digital, single-axis controllers and GoldLine-Xt brushless servomotors, eliminated a separate motion control card, simplified integration, reduced the machine's physical size and weight, and significantly reduced manufacturing costs.
