MOD-PAL®

The design of APT’s MOD-PAL® is unique in the sense that everything is built in a 5’ x 5’ pattern, allowing the customer to lay out the system for their needs on their floor. There are countless options available with our modular mix and match designs.

We offer both FANUC R-1000 and FANUC M410 Robot options. This accommodates all products case sizes that can be erected by a Wexxar W20 and W30 case erector.

Operator Interface

Our entire system is made to be efficient and straightforward, having fewer HMI control touch points, an ease-of-use operator interface, recipe management, visual factory concepts, and simplified maintenance and troubleshooting.

System

The System tab used for general machine setup. A majority of the functions available have security requirements to access them. Some Functions on the System HMI screens include: VFD frequency setup, Recipe Management System, Inspection Limits, I/O Link Setup, Login, and System Security Settings.

Operation

The Operations tab is used for general machine operation and functionality. 3D model images are shown on the screen for ease of use. Status Indicators, Mode Control, and Manual Operations, along with Operational and Fault Messages, are displayed on these screens.

Robot

The Robot tab displays all communication and I/O interface between the system PLC and robot. Users may also manually control the functions of the robot and call a specific robot program to run from this screen.

I/O

The I/O tab shows all I/O within the system. It displays the on/off status, and has the option to run diagnostics for aid in troubleshooting.

Production

The Production tab allows the user to view and capture production data to be used for business analytics. Users are able to edit the parameters and schedule system runs with recipe management and the production scheduler
