Hitachi Saves Herb Bagging Automation Project


A Mitsubishi Alpha PLC was punching above its weight division on an automated punnet bagging machine. The prototype machine was failing to complete its trial run.

After a brief consultation Fast Automation swapped the PLC for a Hitachi EH-micro 40 I/O unit with a baby Cermate HMI. Although a simple application to program (it only took an afternoon). It was a complex application to implement on the FBD based Alpha controller.

The machine designer’s faith in PLC's was restored after seeing how easy the system was to automate with the correct technology. Fast Automation look forward to working with this new company again soon. Fast Automation were recently appointed Australian distributers for Hitachi PLC and Drives.
