Chief Operating Officer Craig Salvalaggio to participate in Control Engineering Webcast Series, “How to Automate Series: Control System Integration Advances Competitiveness” on March 8, 2023.
Control System Integration: Automation Success in Action
AMT and Gojo Industries, Inc. worked together to create two robotic cells to function in part with their conveyor system, a de-tray operation and a layer forming system. To aid in vision issues on the de-tray system, they used 3D snaps, which is a method that generates a 3D point cloud. Engineers restricted the movement of the robots to help increase speed. On the layer forming side, engineers used a camera above the conveyor so that any box can get through. To solve the speed issue, the conveyor used its rails to align boxes and increase speed.

About the Web Series
Using some of the best application examples and expertise from the latest Global System Integrator Report (supplement to Control Engineering and Plant Engineering), control system integrators will explain how control system integration projects continue to advance customer competitiveness in a variety of industries.
Automation and control system challenges will be illustrated including what’s installed now, what needs to be implemented, and how do we get there in a safe, efficient, cost-effective way?
