It is usually the rotation of the carousel itself that imparts, via a mechanical cam, rotary motion to the bottle holder platter or capping chuck which, in turn, regulate the tightening torque applied with a magnetic clutch. The main shortcomings of a mechanical camsystem include reduced efficiency, due to the mechanical couplings which require complex and costly installation procedures and constant maintenance, noisy operation, inadequate or no format flexibility and limited scalability of the machine.
Fast & Easy implementation of “Bottling Machine“
Elmo’s smart design tools, advanced motion control, perfectly tuned servo axes, and efficient EtherCAT networking allow rapid design of High speed, High precision, Labeling and Cupping machines.Elmo provides new leading industrial quality performance for labeling and cupping machines with line speeds of over 60K labels per hour. Operating in machines at extremely high speeds and achieving high precision labeling with very little errors place Elmo as a major solution provider in the field of high-end labeling and cupping machines. The challenges involving operating more than 60 integrated motor/drives as a solution on an extremely fast rotating platform, transferring high-power, and high-speed EtherCAT communication via slip rings, is implemented rapidly and efficiently only with Elmo’s smart solutions and advanced tools.
