For more than 30 years, Forpak has worked to incorporate the best quality materials, intelligent systems, and reliable automated components that meet all food safety standards into our equipment. Our food production solutions are utilized in facilities worldwide that handle a significant quantity of products daily. One of the reasons why our equipment is so trusted globally for food packaging systems is our use of Allen Bradley PLC programmable controllers and components in our innovative designs. Allen Bradley controls allow facilities to seamlessly integrate our equipment into existing systems and make adjustments at any time to maintain a smoothly running production line. Forpak equipment offers key automated production line capabilities, including laning, sorting, stacking, conveyors, autotransfers, reject systems, and options for custom operations.
Food Packaging Systems
Reliable precision in an automated food packaging system is critical for any facility. Precise controls reduce the downtime of a production line due to jams, inaccuracies, and other belt issues. Our use of Allen Bradley controls in NEMA 4X Watershed Enclosures also allows for greater sanitation. They provide full washdown capabilities while eliminating the risk of human error and contamination.
Allen Bradley controls are a state-of-the-art example of modern programmable logic controllers (PLCs).
What is a PLC?
A PLC is a ruggedized computer control built specifically for industrial use. They are designed for integration into assembly lines, robotic device systems, and other forms of production automation monitoring. Through the use of real-time computing, PLCs are instrumental in their ability to quickly detect and respond to changes. In industrial settings, a PLC needs to be protected against damaging exposure to liquids, debris, temperature extremes, vibrations, electrical noise, and impacts. That’s why a ruggedized casing is crucial in these types of harmful conditions.
Allen Bradley Quality
Allen Bradley controls use intelligent software systems that operate at high speeds and high capacity ranges. These systems are some of the best technologies available to industrial facilities, including food production. The Allen Bradley brand is over 120 years old. In the 1960s, Odo Josef Struger invented the first Allen Bradley PLC systems and continued to work in a leadership position to develop standards for PLC programming language. Today, Allen Bradley controls are used around the world and offer large, small, and micro applications in hundreds of industries.
Forpak’s use of Allen Bradley PLC controls means our customers can trust our equipment to perform at peak precision and capacity at all times. Our preventative maintenance and routine maintenance program services can make your equipment run indefinitely. This helps avoid the expense and stress of production downtime, repairs, and other inconveniences.
