Whether it’s soda or cough syrup, if the labels aren’t affixed identically from bottle to bottle, the brand will lose value, no matter how high the quality of the product. During the labeling process, labels will stretch, warp or even tear if the bottles are not fed at a constant rate. In addition, labeling requirements can change, sometimes requiring cold glue, sometimes hot glue and sometimes shrinkwrap. Your machine’s control architecture must be able to support variances while retaining productivity.

Mitsubishi Electric’s iQ-R Series guarantees labels are affixed accurately. The iQ-R Series controls rotary drums, feed roller brakes and bottle sensors with simple ladder logic programming, all while maintaining the high speeds you rely on to preserve productivity. Communicating upstream to MES systems is easy with built-in Ethernet communications.

Through the high-speed iQ-R Series bus connection, the GOT2000 HMI provides high-res touch screen displays and controls monitoring, debugging and label parameter profile changes and pre-configured diagnostics.

Less complex applications requiring interpolation and servo monitoring can depend on iQ-F products. The iQ-F family features easy system integration. With the FX5U controller, you gain synchronous control of four axes as well as hassle-free maintenance and reduced cost of ownership.

All iQ family controllers seamlessly connect to the Melservo-J4 servo family providing unmatched performance and ease of use including critical auto-tuning and vibration compensation.
