The new M08LV flowpack system takes advantage of a unified control for packaging and dosing operations through PLC-based Omron architecture, Trajexia motion controllers and brushless motors.

“The architecture proposed by Omron enabled us to use a single control system for distinct management of the logic, the motion developed for packaging (managed with interpolating brushless axes) and a second cinematic chain made up of small brushless motors for the dosing phase,” says Francesco Gusson, Chief Engineer of Martini’s Motion Control Division.

The result is a new doser that optimizes the flow of pasta and, by guaranteeing a homogenous pasta density, enables excellent precision in dosing by volume.
