Focus on Consolle XSeries

TH Plastics is an innovative, award winning company.  We support and supply the plastics industry with a range of ancillary equipment; everything from drying and material handling, automation, chilling, recycling to dosing and blending.

This week, we are focussing on the Consolle XSeries by Campetella, which forms part of our automation range. The control unit of XSeries robots is governed by a CNC which is installed with a professional operating system which enables real-time applications and a multi-tasking function to manage any operations that run parallel to the movements of the robot.

The interface between control and drive is fully digitalised and provides excellent axes operating performance. The position signals (setpoint and feedback) travel on CANBus allowing the control unit to receive and manage the information concerning the position of each axis in just a fraction of a second.

In this series, machine programming is carried out entirely through the portable control console, with a colour TFT high resolution display screen; for limited-sized robots up to model MC3, the panel is located on board the machine, without occupying space on the ground. For technical reasons however, the large-sized models (MC4, MC5, MC6 models) and side entry robots (SM2, SM3 models) have their control units on the ground, though they are equipped with a portable console with a colour TFT display screen.

Campetella, with its dynamic and innovatory presence is a real leader in automation and offers more and more flexible, custom-made and technologically advanced solutions.

At TH Plastics, we can supply and install a range of innovative automation equipment to reduce labour, increase productivity and reduce down time. Our range includes side entry robots, traverse robots and swing robots. To find out more, call us on 01457 855514.
