Mitsubishi Electric Automation, Inc. Provides HMI, PLC, VFD, and Servo Components to Achieve Precise and Delicate Capping Machine

Packaging machinery customer, Balpack Inc., creates a highly precise capping machine with quick changeover functionality through programming expertise from HPE Automation and precision controls from Mitsubishi Electric.

When Balpack Inc., packaging machinery specialists from Sarasota, Florida, were tasked with manufacturing a star wheel capping machine for a customer, they turned to automation vendor HPE Automation, a Diamond Partner Distributor Elite of Mitsubishi Electric Automation.

HPE Automation recommended using Mitsubishi Electric components for a complete and compatible solution to develop a machine in a shorter time frame. Since the machine is powered by VFDs and Servos, it required programming expertise, provided by HPE, and precision controls to ensure the capping machine had the delicacy to work with fragile materials such as glass. The machine is easily reprogrammable, and all settings can be controlled by a user-friendly HMI allowing for quicker changeovers that once were performed manually, decreasing downtime significantly.

Caroline Shipp, General Manager at Balpack Inc., stated “Mitsubishi Electric was literally the savior of this project. They got us what we needed when we needed it. Plus, they were open about pricing. That’s important for a company of our size.” Executive Vice President of Balpack Inc., Roman Balcar, added “And the value that Mitsubishi Electric brought to Balpack allowed us to give our customers a lot of bang for the buck.”
