Container sizes differ according to customer requirements. These mechanical adaptations are adjusted automatically in order to reduce the retooling times of the packaging machine. A format adjustment drive specifically developed for this purpose is able to position the mechanical systems accordingly. Convenient solutions are also available for manual adjustment.

Automatic adjustment of filler head referred to container height

Intelligent compact drive with BLDC motor, absolute multiturn rotary encoder and worm gear

Maximum availability and process reliability of the machine after format adjustment

  • Automated adaptation to different container sizes
  • No referencing necessary after starting up the machine

Easy to integrate in particularly compact machines

  • Modular design with various gearboxes and connection variants
  • Bevel gears with hollow shaft and torque support ensure easy replacement of handwheels
  • The self-locking worm gear renders an additional stop brake unnecessary

Reduced integration and complexity costs

  • PROFINET, PROFIBUS or CANopen interface enable direct connection to the machine controller
  • Manufacturer-independent application profiles, e.g. PROFIdrive, CiA402
  • The drive directly provides diagnostic data relating to axis status

Manual adjustment of container guides

Spindle position display

Fast and error-free retooling

  • Manual format adjustment with absolute multiturn rotary encoder with operator guidance
  • Display of actual position and setpoint for fast, error-free retooling
  • Communication with machine controller via RS485, PROFIBUS
  • Memory controller N242 for recipe management
