MPAC multi axis Machine Platforms

MPAC Ltd. have developed a range of multi axis machines for use in pharmaceutical, laboratory, and other sample testing applications.

Our multi axis machine platforms have many applications and can be custom built in both functionality and size to suit your process

Below is an example of one application in laboratory testing

  • Increase laboratory productivity and efficiency
  • Automate the process of scanning test samples
  • Increase throughput
  • Eliminate human error from the process
  • Reduce laboratory labour costs
  • Reduce operator fatigue by eliminating repetitive work
  • Retractable plate carrier automatically ejects from the machine allowing ease of loading and unloading
  • High precision X-Y axis designed and built using high performance Mitsubishi MR-J servo motors
  • High speed Cognex scanner linked over TCP-IP Ethernet to a high performance Mitsubishi Q-Series plc
  • Touch screen operator interface with customised software to generate results files and provide FTP interaction with client server
  • Remote dial in facility for maintenance and assistance
  • Custom built machine frame to house all components internally
  • Scanner mounted on bespoke X-Y axis rails built in-house from billet aircraft grade aluminium
  • Motor mounts and couplings also built from aircraft grade aluminium and 316 grade stainless steel
  • Control cabinet and back plate custom fabricated as part of machine structure
  • High performance Mitsubishi Q-Series plc with motion card on rack
  • Fibre optic link to servo motor drives for high speed communications
  • TCP/IP Ethernet communications link between scanner and plc
  • Optical safety sensors protect the operator from coming in contact with moving parts
  • The optical safety sensors are armed when motion starts and along with a standard emergency stop button form the integral safety circuit which when activated cuts motion power and triggers a safe stop mode on the servo system
