Nescafe Coffee Jar Lid Sorter
I have just completed programming a conveyor system that accepts injection moulded Nescafe coffee Jar Lids, and orientates them ready to be assembled and fitted to jars of Nescafe coffee.
The control system consisted of the new Mitsubishi FX3s processor, programmed via GX Works2 (part of IQ Works) a GOT2104 HMI and multiple Mitsubishi inverters. The PLC communicated with each of the inverters through RS485 on a addon communication module using Mitsubishi Inverter Communication Protocol.
Aswell as hopper level control the system detected incorrectly orientated coffee jar lids and ejected them before streaming them onto a single conveyor to go onto assembly.
The HMI was programmed using GT Desigenr to allow all the functionality of the system to be adjusted by the customers engineer, these settings were protected via password. The HMI also displayed system messages and current status of the machine.
