An economic multi-axis motion controller and high level software development environment from ABB is helping Rollem – a leading specialist print machinery manufacturer – to rapidly evolve its modular finishing system. The motion architecture has just made it easy to add another peripheral to the company’s print finishing equipment range – a stacking unit that collects and groups products such as business cards into finished quantities ready for shipping.


At the heart of all of Rollem’s current machinery range is a compact ABB controller called NextMove-ESB2. This compact packaged module is capable of controlling up to eight servo and stepper motor axes, and includes on-board analogue and digital I/O for general machine control, plus interfaces including a CANopen port for controlling distributed motion and I/O resources. Depending on the particular finishing line configuration and number of motion axes, one or more of these controllers is installed in the distributed control system.
