Corrugated paper and cardboard packaging producer Kinnareds Well has partnered with Rockwell Automation and Hax Technologies for the upgrade of its assembly line’s human-machine interface (HMI). 

The Swedish packaging company selected Rockwell Automation’s Allen-Bradley OptixPanel Standard Graphic Terminal for its apparent reliability, ease of use, and versatility, integrating seamlessly with FactoryTalk software. 

The new HMI displays offer high-resolution graphics and an intuitive, configurable interface.  

Engineers from Hax Technologies were able to quickly connect and configure OptixPanel, significantly reducing downtime for the assembly line.  

The terminal’s secure remote-access features allowed much of the configuration to be completed off site, with Hax Technologies also providing remote support through a long-term service contract. 

Kinnareds utilised the panel’s built-in web server to give staff remote HMI access from other locations, eliminating the need for additional panels.
