Wireless data acquisition technology is reducing the cost and waste associated with two-piece can decorating through a control panel produced by Advantech Corporation, Industrial Automation Group partner MSI Tec.

The panel, designed for a major OEM builder of aluminum can decorating machinery, uses analog sensors, wireless data acquisition modules, and a web-enabled hand-held PC to monitor and control settings on the decorating machinery. Alcoa Packing Machinery (APM) manufacturers a number of products for two-piece can production, embossing and decorating. Its Concord Decorators feature up to eight ink stations, 24 or 36 mandrels, and have the ability to decorate 2,000 plus cans a minute.
