  • Solutions

    “Synchronized axes/Sercos/Motion Controller LMC216” is an example of automation architecture for a broad range of servo driven packaging machines. Servo drives can all be operated in multiple configurations. Drive, I/O and saved communication over a Sercos automation bus minimize cabling. Typical packaging machine functionality is available via software.
