The first truly integrated automation architecture

PacDrive integrates motion, logic, programmable limit switches, temperature control, even robotic kinematics in software. With PacDrive, there are no performance-degrading add-on hardware modules, backplanes or software handshaking. Centralized control assures the fastest possible response times and servo axis counts. PacDrive can handle your most ambitious throughput and changeover requirements - with power left over to serve up MES data, synchronize your line, and perform efficiency monitoring.

We're changing the way machinery works

We are credited with enabling the development of Generation 3 packaging machinery* with its 1998 introduction of PacDrive™.

The PacDrive system replaces mechanical drivetrains with a fully integrated automation controller, digital servo drives and intelligent motors, and human machine interface (HMI).

PacDrive also replaces the functionalities of many discrete controllers in one software application running on a robust Pentium Mobile industrial processor.
 
PacDrive is eminently scalable. Our fastest controller can run up to 99 axes and thousands of I/O. Our smallest makes servo affordable for the most price sensitive machine.

All the benefits of international standards

PacDrive adheres to the principles of OMAC™s Plug-and-Pack™ Guidelines* and all relevant industry standards.

Standards mean you can learn a skill once instead of relearning how to do the same task every time you use a different control system. And they make it easier to leverage the best technologies on the market.

We believe standards should be embraced. They stimulate competition for your business on the basis of performance and innovation.
