OSSID 500E Retrofit Project a.k.a "American Wrapper Retrofit"

Updated: Jan 30

Passion for improvement has fueled this project for the past few years.

The idea of building a more customizable controls system and resilient electro-mechanical system sparked the project that has led to the American Wrapper.

Using Solidworks we designed new motor mounts, control panels, sheet metal and bracketry for the machine set.

Inductive Automation's Ignition Perspective Panel and Rockwell Automation's Studio 5000 software have allowed us to build a modern user interface and tunable servo system.

We have played with optimizing the system and ran the 500E up to 73 packs per minute during testing. This machine fits the modern machine profile with networking capability and remote service support.
