Mitsubishi Electric Automation has broadened its portfolio of iQ Monozukuri series engineering tools to include offerings for control designers working on machines in the packaging, converting, and print industries.
iQ Monozukuri Packaging and iQ Monozukuri Converting are targeted to programmers, OEMs and end users that are working with Mitsubishi Electric’s compact or modular PLC offerings.
iQ Monozukuri Packaging and Converting join iQ Monozukuri Andon to create a comprehensive engineering tool portfolio. The Packaging version is available for iQ-F and iQ-R Series hardware. The Converting version is available for iQ-R Series hardware only.
The Printing and Converting packages provide a way to create projects using preconfigured cam profile function blocks, sample programs and sample GOT screens. They are designed to save hours in not only programming, but also simulation. Both products have been available for years in Japan before coming to North and South America, providing confidence in code integrity.
Mitsubishi Electric has made a free 60-day trial version available for download. The trial software can be downloaded to iQ-F or iQ-R Series control platforms and Simple Motion Modules. After the trial period ends, data will not be lost, though it will be unusable until the full version is installed.
