Mitsubishi Electric Automation’s networking and compatibility capabilities provide quality and cost-conscious machine

06 December 2023

Mitsubishi Electric Automation, Inc. is known for the quality, performance and compatibility of its automation components. Because of this, Womack Machine Supply, Diamond Partner Distributor Elite of Mitsubishi Electric Automation, recommended utilizing a complete Mitsubishi Electric solution when they were approached by Integrated Production Systems (IPS) for a new machine. IPS’s customer needed a new solution for producing anechoic foam, since their old process involved two machines that were over 30 years old, required constant repair and maintenance, and had a large footprint.

IPS achieved cost savings by producing the machine using components manufactured solely by Mitsubishi Electric, including variable frequency drives, servos, human-machine interfaces and a PLC with embeddedTSN enables real-time data collection from all devices on the shop floor.

With a complex machine as is, it was important to IPS that the components were compatible. The Mitsubishi Electric Automation team recommended using CC-Link IE TSN to deliver gigabit Ethernet performance and time-sensitive networking for seamless communication and real-time networking. Furthermore, Mitsubishi Electric Automation provided extensive training on the new system to alleviate future downtime.

“The ‘graybeards’ from Womack and Mitsubishi Electric were an essential part of our team and were always just a phone call away,” said Seth Fuller, vice president of engineering at IPS. “The customer was pleasantly surprised at the cost and quality of everything from Mitsubishi Electric.”
