How CP Packaging is innovating controls architecture with IO-Link

All-in-One IO and safety solution boosts OEE

When an important safety component was discontinued, CP Packaging was left seeking a new solution.

The producer of horizontal form fill and seal machines for the food industry incorporated IO-Link controls architecture from Balluff on their VisionPak™ vacuum pack machines to configure, control, and monitor their safety system. They quickly realized the added benefits of the efficient handling and configuring of analog and digital devices into the system. Using the Balluff IO-Link solution and device interface tools, they reduced costs, decreased labor hours, and obtained improved diagnostics — a necessary component for emerging technologies like Industry 4.0. And its capabilities can easily be expanded to the entire warehouse and provide the flexibility their customers demand.

What started as a search to find a replacement for a discontinued part resulted in a better design for their entire controls architecture.
