Advanced packaging solution integrates seamlessly into modern component fabrication line thanks to innovative in-machine and between-machine transportation technology

ROCKWELL AUTOMATION’S CHOICE OF CAMA FOR THIS APPLICATION IS TESTAMENT TO THE STRENGTH OF THEIR MUTUAL RELATIONSHIP AND REINFORCES THE CAPABILITIES OF MODERN INTEGRATED CONTROL SOLUTIONS.

Cama Group prides itself on the way it designs, develops, and deploys new technologies, in order to bring heightened integration, throughput, accuracy, and quality levels to the packaging industry.

Its machines, which see action all over the globe in a huge variety of packaging applications, are designed to offer the perfect blend of modular, accessible, and hygienic mechanical frameworks, coupled to the very latest technology the automation world has to offer; including advanced and tightly integrated in-house-developed robotic pick-and-place solutions.

In a recent project, Cama’s high-tech pedigree was really put to the test, when it was tasked with designing and integrating one of its Breakthrough Generation (BTG) CL 175 cartoning machines into an electrical component fabrication line at one of the world’s largest automation vendors, Rockwell Automation.

In addition to proving the integration capabilities of the control solution, Cama had to demonstrate that its machine would fit seamlessly into the rest of the line, the majority of which had been developed and built by US company Calvary Robotics, a specialist in the design and build of automated assembly, test, and material-handling systems.

According to Giovanni Panzeri, Automation Project Leader at Cama: “The line with which we were integrating is for the assembly of a wide range of contactors, the model type of which vary depending on the contact configuration, the voltage and the applicable local certifications, such as CE and UL. The line is designed to be as flexible as possible, so that small batches of the various contactor models can be fabricated – to order in a just-in-time fashion – as efficiently as possible, with minimum reengineering and downtime. As a result, our packaging solution had to deliver a commensurate level of flexibility, to adapt and change to the various product throughputs.”
