Challenge:

A filling machine fills 32-ounce yogurt containers. The client planned to retrofit the filler from a mechanical system to an electrical servo controlled system. The system was old and needed an upgrade, and the controls were obsolete.

Ambassador’s Solution:

Ambassador provided a complete audit of the existing machine and its connections. Ambassador also supplied a modern set of drawings created in AutoCAD Electrical, replacing the old controls with new equipment from Rockwell Automation including ControlLogix PAC, associated I/O and a Kinetix servo system for the new motion controls. The company worked in collaboration with mechanical designers to calculate optimal machine efficiency and cycle time.
