“We are excited about the MLX100 robot gateway and what it means for the wider adoption of robotics in the consumer packaging industry,” says Roger Christian, vice president, marketing and development. “The ability to program the robot from within RSLogix software opens new possibilities for packaging-machine OEMs and end-users. Using PAC/PLC language, the MLX100 allows users to program, deploy and support robotic system solutions utilizing their existing in-house PAC/PLC expertise.”
