EtherCAT Motion Control for Packaging Machines

Jonathan Bullick | November 11th, 2020

Due to Covid-19, the 2020 Pack Expo Connects featured 15-minute video demos.  This is KEB America’s demo on EtherCAT Motion Control for Packaging Machines.


Scott sets up a sample Seal Bar application where one motor axis is an inbound conveyor running in Velocity Mode.  The second servo motor axis is the seal bar that is being synchronized to the inbound conveyor with a Cam profile from KEB’s SMART EtherCAT control.  The video highlights the ease-of-set up using Combivis Studio 6 IDE and KEB’s motion libraries.  EtherCAT is an excellent choice for Motion Control applications, learn more at the EtherCAT Technology Group website.
