You-Choose-It Controls

March 9, 2012
Integrated robotic and machine control is consistent with a general trend in evidence at the last two PMMI shows and at interpack: demystifying packaging robotics.

With headquarters in The Netherlands, Codian Robotics ( hopes to capitalize on that trend as it establishes a North American sales office in Jackson, MI.

A specialist in the delta robot market, the firm believes it can differentiate itself from the already established vendors of robotic packaging solutions because, as general manager Gregory Lee Brasic puts it, “We don’t try to tell you what control systems you should use.

Our goal is to be compatible with all major control system manufacturers’ offerings…. We will of course pair developers up with resources from their control system vendor of choice, but we are in the business of designing, building, and marketing the best delta style robots we can produce.”

Brasic says it is his belief that “allowing you to use our robots in an integrated controls architecture leverages the investment you have already made in the controls equipment of your choice, lowers total cost of ownership, and elevates the degree of integration and functionality of your system.” Codian currently has more 600 robots in the field worldwide running on control systems from Rockwell Automation, Elau, Siemens, B&R Automation, and others.
