Automation Solutions

for Packaging Machines


Scalable Platform

One development environment with scalable EtherCAT hardware solutions.  Basic motion control application can be solved with KEB’s C6 Smart embedded control.  Large machines can use KEB’s E22 industrial PC.

IEC 61131-3 Programming

Developers enjoy a full programming suite supporting Structured Text (ST), Ladder Diagram (LD), Function Block Diagram (FBD), Instruction list (IL), Continuous Function Chart (CFC), and Sequential Function Chart (SFC).



KEB Powered Libraries

Developers save significant time with Combivis Studio 6.  Studio includes tried and tested functionality that speeds up development times.  Functions facilitate the CiA 402 Drive control, master/slave control, and cam editors.

Flexible Communication Options

KEB’s Drives support over 10 different industrial communication protocols including Ethernet/IP, Profinet, EtherCAT, and Powerlink.  This allows OEMs to standardize on one drive platform and easility integrate with any major PLC manufacturer. 



Internal Positioning Module

Decentralize positioning tasks with KEB’s internal 32-bit positioning module.  Moving the position loop to the drive allows for extremely accurate and responsive positioning moves.  Absolute and relative positioning can be done via the communication bus or digital inputs.



Dual Encoder Channels

KEB’s drives feature dual encoder channels which can be configured as inputs or outputs.  One possible implementation is to compare the motor feedback and speed feedback from the drum side of a theater winch.  The KEB drive can then evaluate the two signals and determine if an e-stop needs to be made.



Safe Motion – SIL3 rated

KEB’s next generation drives feature scalable safety solutions.  Safe Torque Off (STO) is standard.  Advanced Safe Motion functions in the drive like Safe Limited Speed and Safe Direction are available.  These functions can even be triggered via Failsafe over EtherCAT (FSoE).  All safety functionality is TÜV certified.



Integral Design

Powerful and compact KEB gearmotors are perfect for conveying and indexing applications.  They come in helical-bevel, helical-worm, inline, and parallel offset configurations.



Ingress Protection

Increased IP ratings and food-grade paint options are available for washdown applications.



Induction & Servo motor options

Depending on the application requirements, either induction or servo motors can be configured.
