Speed and Accuracy from B&R stepper motors

Caxton approached us to develop a system to identify a 2mm thick piece of cardboard in a stack of labels based only on a slight difference in colour between the edge of the labels and the edge of the cardboard and then to pneumatically seperate the stack at the cardboard.


The system had to be reliable, accurate, fast, and fit into a small space under an existing machine. It was also necessary for the system to handle different colour labels and cardboard seperators.

A combination of a stepper motor from B&R and a linear slide and pneumatic cylinder from Festo brought the system to life. Controlled with B&R's compact, affordable and fast Power Panel 65 combined with X20 IO the project was completed. Our inhouse graphic designer made interface screens that matched the clients company profile and are simple and intuitive to use.
