To keep up with the increasing demand, Hanyang Packaging took an innovative approach to smart machine design. Unlike conventional equipment that includes a separate robotic control environment, Delta Robot by Rockwell’s Integrated Architecture relies on one control platform for the entire system — from robotics control to indexing and conveyance. Unlike traditional equipment that includes a spate robotic control environment, using only a single control platform enables improved connectivity both in terms of network and hardware.
Integrated Architecture is real-time control and information delivering smart manufacturing, machines and equipment. As part of the Integrated Architecture system, the CompactLogix 5370 L3 controllers use the same programming software, network protocol, and information capabilities as all Logix controllers, providing a common development environment for all control disciplines. The single control environment means the entire system can be managed from standardized controllers and one control touch screen. The function of kinematics within the controller added to the overall machine design simplicity and easier accessibility to maintain.
In addition to the CompactLogix controller, the Rockwell Automation system includes Allen-Bradley® Kinetix® 5500 servo drives and VP-Series™ servo motors. The servos control the Delta Robot as well as the indexing motion exactly.
“One Allen-Bradley® CompactLogix® 5370 controller provides all the processing power we need from beginning to end,” said Kee Hoon Kim, Solution Architect from Rockwell Automation. "By integrating robots and all servo drives into one controller, and Kinematics in Logix's standardized CIP Sync / motion platform, we can easily control advanced motion by maximizing user programmability."
The loader is monitored by using Allen-Bradley PanelView™ Plus 7, ideal for applications like monitoring, controlling and displaying information in dynamic ways where operators must quickly understand machine status and make better decisions.
With this solution, Hanyang Packaging has improved productivity and efficiency and reduced costs with a single common control platform, common network and design environment.
Hanyang Packing introduced the Delta Robot with the Integrated Architecture from Rockwell Automation for the first time in the Kim packaging industry and now has the best reference and overwhelming market share in the field. We are providing total solution in one F&B packaging industry.
Success of this project has been a great help from references to successful examples from Rockwell Automation references. Customers have had a good understanding of the high-end Delta Robots that can only be realized by Rockwell Automation products and solutions through many references.
The success of this project can be seen from two perspectives. From the end-user perspective, the new equipment allowed hanyang to manage peak summer production in the summer without having to hire an additional 10-15 employees. In addition, from an OEM perspective, sales automation increased by more than twice as much as last year, and Investment payback Period also declined over the long term, resulting in a six-month ROI.
