Labels are affixed to a moving bottle. A sensor (fed into the high speed position latch of the controller) on the conveyor detects an oncoming bottle, at which point the label is indexed. A second sensor on the label accurately detects the label position allowing it to be accurately placed onto the bottle.
A servo axis on the conveyor is used to control the machine speed. This application can be solved using position lock, with a clutch (Mint FOLLOW keyword) to allow controlled acceleration and deceleration of the label while at the same time maintaining position with the conveyor. A position offset (Mint OFFSET keyword) corrects for any error between the bottle and the label.
Special features used:
Auxiliary encoder for product synchronization
Software position lock with clutch distance to engage and disengage the label movement
High speed position latch to accurately measure product and label position
Comms array to pass recipe data to and from the HMI
All of Baldor's motion control products can be used to solve this multi-axis application
