ASTRRA’s oneTouch automatic changeover system can handle all your rail and machine changeover adjustments.
Since 2008 ASTRRA has been revolutionizing packaging automation.
Based on industry standard wireless communications protocols, ASTRRA is a distributed control system which eliminates cumbersome and expensive point-to-point control wiring to a central PLC. Instead, only one inexpensive 24VDC bus is required along the length of the conveyor.
Once installed and aligned, setting up the conveyor for a new package requires nothing more than entering the package width or diameter in the system and rails will move to the new position.
ASTRRA licensed integrators have been thoroughly trained in the use of ASTRRA technology and all have significant experience in the design and implementation of ASTRRA in existing and new packaging applications. ASTRRA is a product of A. S. Thomas, Inc.
The ASTRRA oneTouch changeover process and products are patented and patent pending.
