Company will showcase its new Conveyor Changeover Efficiency Loop with safety- and energy-monitoring demonstrations. The racetrack-configured conveyor loop displays a variety of Company's adjustable guide rail assemblies, from manual to fully automated control solutions. Users can test and compare several levels of changeover solutions, including quickset bracket assemblies, set-in rails, hand-wheel adjustable guide rails and push-button automatic guide rails. An Allen-Bradley PanelView™ Plus 6 HMI (Human Machine Interface) allows attendees to try the interface and simply push a button for the pre-programmed recipe and package size change for the automatic rail adjustment. The display also shows power consumption over Ethernet/IP to demonstrate energy efficiencies on two different drive designs: worm versus helical bevel gearing.
