PACK Expo - Delta Presents Integrated Automation Solutions for Packaging Machinery at PACK EXPO International 2016

Company launches new controller programming software ISPSoft version 3.0, combining logic and motion into one integrated solution

CHICAGO, Nov. 3, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Delta Group, a global leader in power and thermal management solutions, invites attendees of PACK EXPO International, running from November 6 - 9 in Chicago, to experience its journey to smart packaging manufacturing at booth E-7152. Visitors and manufacturers at all stages of their smart manufacturing journey are encouraged to download the "Delta Passport" for free to gain first-hand access to the company's automation solutions for packaging machinery, including Integrated Automation Solutions, Food Packaging Solution, Beverage Production Solution, and EtherNet/IP Solution that improve Overall Equipment Effectiveness (OEE). Delta will also be showcasing its newly launched controller programming software, ISPSoft version 3.0, which includes logic and PLCopen function blocks for motion control in one integrated environment.

The ISPSoft version 3.0 is fully IEC 61131-3 compliant, supporting all 5 languages, user defined data structures, and multiple POU scan settings. This new controller programming software not only programs Delta's complete line of PLCs, but also its MH300, MS300, and C2000 series VFDs with built-in PLC, now available up to 840 HP @ 690VAC for increased memory and processing speeds. This creates a fully harmonized solution with true scalability advantages across a wide range of machinery platforms.

"Consumer loyalty often begins with the packaging, as the perception it puts forth represents the quality of that product and the entire brand," said Bill Faber, Director of Delta Products Corporation's Industrial Automation Marketing. "Given this, manufacturers are searching for production technologies that can improve machinery flexibility and produce quality results, while also keeping overall capital costs to a minimum. Delta's drive to constantly innovate, commitment to sustainability, and ability to provide fully integrated solutions from start to finish set it apart within the industry, cementing its position as a leading automation technology provider for manufacturers worldwide."

Demos at the booth will highlight the following:

Integrated Automation Solutions: Delta's ability to provide complete integrated automation solutions for packaging machinery simplifies and streamlines purchasing, design and support, as it all comes from one brand. Delta will showcase the use of integrated smart functions to bring conveyance, logical sequence, robotic motion, vision orientation and inspection, machine setup and monitoring all together as a robotic cell, far surpassing the capabilities of stand-alone robot systems.
Food Packaging Solution: Delta's solutions offer scalable control architectures with high-functionality product technology integrated to create cost efficient stand-alone automation modules. With compact product and system design, Delta can minimize installation space, without sacrificing performance. Delta will have a demo to highlight unique parameterized motion MACRO functions built into the A2 Series Servo Drive to quickly solve common applications including rotary knife & seal, flying shear & fill, line-shafting, feed-to-registration, wind/unwind, pick-n-place, blended move indexing and absolute dial tables.
Beverage Production Solution: Delivering high-speed packaging efficiency and reliability, Delta's solution for beverage production features its mid-range PLC AH500 Series with EtherCAT motion modules as the main centralized controller to offer stable, integrated multi-task control among packaging processes. In addition, the machine vision system integrated in this solution offers highly accurate inspection of finished goods to ensure product quality. This demo will feature the use of a singular network for high-speed synchronized & deterministic control of Multi-Axis Servo Motion, Variable Frequency Drive (VFD), and Remote I/O -- resulting in quicker time-to-commission, simplified maintenance and faster machine changeover recovery.
EtherNet/IP Solution: Now, Delta PLCs, VFDs, Motion Controllers, Ethernet Switches, and Industrial Communication modules all support EtherNet/IP for information connectivity to third party devices and enterprise systems. This high level of connectivity, over a standardized Ethernet protocol, provides component and system level advantages in machine modules and production lines.
As evidence of Delta's Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) readiness, all booth demos are tied to a centralized station through multiple drop-in Delta 3G wireless Cloud Routers. HMIs with dual Ethernet ports segregate control and support remote monitoring control, while Delta's PLCs enable local data acquisition and powerful analysis, and Servo/VFD drives serve up energy usage, power, current and torque signatures.

Delta also will have on display its recently released MH300/MS300 series VFD controlling conveyor systems with induction motor, permanent magnet motors, and high speed spindle motors up to 2,000 Hz. This system includes complete demonstration of remote control over EtherNet/IP, open and closed loop motor operation, E-Stop & STO safety and a fast deceleration feature with reduced regeneration energy.
