Single control for long pasta packaging and dosing

In the world of pasta packaging, long pasta is particularly challenging, primarily because of the complexity of dosing different pasta formats. So when Martini Packaging decided to develop a new machine with faster operational speed and greater dosing precision, it turned to Omron.

“The architecture proposed by Omron enabled us to use a single control system for distinct management of the logic, the motion developed for packaging (managed with interpolating brushless axes) and a second cinematic chain made up of small brushless motors for the dosing phase,” says Francesco Gusson, Chief Engineer of Martini’s Motion Control Division.

"It also controlled the weighing system, managed via a serial network, and the sealing pincer thermoregulation system – which is essential to the quality of pasta packaging. The greater the thermal stability of the pincers (which operate between 130 and 170 °C) the better the seal quality, especially at high speeds."

The result is a new doser that optimizes the flow of pasta and, by guaranteeing a homogenous pasta density, enables excellent precision in dosing by volume.
