KHS machine automation

Standardized hardware and software for all KHS machines

Do you want to cut your costs and avoid long downtimes in your production shop? Then we have the perfect solution for you! We are constantly working on standardized hardware and software for our machines, enabling you to simplify machine operation and generally make your production and manufacturing processes more effective.

To achieve this we work with a number of strong partners. Our innovative developments for uniform machine operation are based on the S7 controllers and SIMOTION motion control systems produced by Siemens.

The modular S7 controller is specifically designed for innovative system solutions used in the manufacturing industry. This universal automation system is thus ideal for applications within your centralized and decentralized production processes.

The SIMOTION motion control system is suitable for all machines with motion control tasks, whether simple or complex – with the focus on simple and flexible systems. Its modular design is totally in keeping with the trend for modular machine concepts. This means that with a few modules many different machine variations (or concepts) can be implemented and scaled.

To date we offer standardized automation for the following KHS machines:

  • Filling machines
  • Washing machines
  • Labeling machines
  • Aseptic filling technology
  • Packaging machines (motion control in the process of being implemented)
  • Palletizing and packing machines (motion control in the process of being implemented).

Another outstanding plus is uniform operation using the new, ergonomic and technically sophisticated KHS ClearLine HMI operator terminal.

Convince yourselves of the many advantages of KHS machine automation. Much faster troubleshooting will shorten your production downtimes. You profit three times over: your machines need fewer spare parts, you cut maintenance costs and also reduce the amount of training for your specialist personnel as operation of your machinery is much simpler.

We would be happy to advise you on the use of our standardized hardware and software in your company. Why not contact us right now? You can rely on KHS to greatly boost your production efficiency.
