PARMA, 1st September 2009 – The excellent relationship, which has tied OCME to B&R since 2005, has been recently renewed by OCME signing up a supply agreement to exclusively use B&R technologies of Motion Control and HMI for the next 4 years.
OCME S.r.l. is one of the worldwide leaders in the packaging and filling field with a turnover of € 90 Million in the fiscal year 2008 (of 82% export worth) more than 400 employees and over 10.000 machines worldwide installed.
The complete flexibility, reliability and performance of B&R systems: ACOPOS (Motion Control) and Panel PC 700 (HMI), which are completely integrated in Ethernet POWERLINK (an Open Source protocol implemented on the most widespread standard Ethernet chip for the automatic machines which have deterministic and real-time needs), has enabled to boost technological developments of OCME’s machines dramatically and meet the company mission to reach perfection in packaging.
Mr. Mosca Antonio, responsible of OCME electrical office, says, The flexibility and the performance of ACOPOS systems have allowed us to gain the leadership in packaging machines for high production filling systems. The reliability of B&R components has definitely persuaded us that OCME made the right strategic choice 4 years ago. And this allows us to look ahead to the future challenges.”
The advanced functionalities of Safe Motion available with Ethernet POWERLINK (Safe stop 1 - Safe stop 2, Safe Limited Speed, Safe Torque Off, etc.) guarantees the conformity to the maximum safety standards which are laid down in the directive 2006/42/CE on machines, which will soon bring in.
B&R boasts a decade-long experience in Motion Control solutions. It offers a software solution which integrates all functionalities of motion from single positioning to controlling axis with cam profiles, from CNC to Robotic solutions. The scalability and compatibility between the several Hardware solutions (ACOPOS, ACOPOSMulti, ACOPOSµ, ACOPOSInverter) allow machine manufactures to decide the best solution of Motion to meet the particular needs of their own automatic machines single-handedly and very flexibly.
The solutions of B&R HMI, APC, Panel PC and Power Panel, allows a great scalability in the choice of the man-machine interface guaranteeing reliability and long-term support which has always been the distinctive feature of B&R‘s offer.
