All-round Print & Apply Controller for Innovative Marking Solutions
HM Systems had many different controllers / control systems for their tailor-made special solutions for labelling machines. Therefore, they needed to develop one flexible control system handling everything for the many machine types in HM System’s labelling solutions.
In constructive co-operation with HM Systems Develco wrote the requirements specification for the new versatile controller. Afterwards the product development with the design of the electronics for the controller started. The controller includes several subcomponents to make it one all-round and complete controller for all HM Systems labelling solutions. In addition Develco has developed driver and test software so that the customer’s own system can be moved and adapted to the controller in the customer-specific labelling solution. The control system controls the printer and labelling machine attaching labels on the customer’s packings. In order to prevent stops in printing and labelling, the digital output is protected against overcurrent and short circuits, and the controller is protected against electrical noise (EMC).
