Build & Manufacture

Refurbishment: Servo

Over recent years Servo Technology has really changed the dynamics of the packaging industry, DACO UK has embraced those changes to remain ahead of our competition from both a technical and financial perspective. Mark Gerrish, Chief Engineer.

The emphasis at DACO has historically been mechanical rebuilds with costly shaft links to automatic feeding but with new technology and the introduction of servo drives, the automatic line can now be cheaper and inspire greater control definition with the use of servo motors.

DACO aim to program their Servo machines to offer the simplest user interface for their clients enabling them to take maximum advantage of features like 'No Product No Bag' and 'No Gap No Seal' together with 'align' and 'measure film'. Having recipe storage also makes the setup automatic and reduces the need for engineer involvement as operators very soon learn to adapt and are quite happy to run all recipe changes.
