ACMA has launched a HMI display, which it will debut on its CW 800 R packaging machine for flat-base chocolates, at Pack Expo.

The operator panel (HMI), featuring touchscreen technology, is designed to guide the user through all processes, from everyday machine operation to periodic maintenance and ordering replacement parts.

The display can interact with the operator visually through images and video, making the panel quick and easy to use, which is ideal for quick-change pack formats, which can be explained in video tutorials customised by machine version and by the type of product to be packaged.  

A spokesman for ACMA, part of Coesia Group, said the HMI is the ‘electronic brain’ of the machine: using hardware that monitors the machine’s operating data, detecting when any parameters are out of scale and automatically making adjustments to optimize production flow. 

The panel also uses a predictive approach, anticipating the need for certain interventions and routine maintenance activities. 

Real-time data

The machine is constantly connected and relays real-time activity data, for production efficiency. 

The operator panel will be presented at Pack Expo in Chicago from October 14-17.
