Integrated Motion

Due to the complexity of some cutting operations, a motion controller may be required. Berran has experience with single and multiple axis motion control using a variety of motion controllers. Whether it be one or more linear axis that operate independently or coordinated motion, we can develop a machine to fit your company's part processing needs.

Trim Fixtures

Many of our customers have parts that are generated via molding processes. These parts often require trimming due to overmolding or additional part processing requirements such as dome removal or slotting.

Whether the part to be trimmed is flat, round, square, or a combination of geometric shapes, Berran can engineer and build a trim fixture to fit your needs. Common devices used for trim fixtures are spin cutters, knives (heated and unheated), drills, hole saws, circular saws, band saws, and even integrated CNC routers.

Laser Mounting Carts

Sometimes the best laser mounting solution is a mobile, open-air, cart. We design and build mobile marking solutions for use with a variety of laser marker manufacturers. With features such as mounting for an on-board PC, including monitor mount and keyboard/mouse tray, our mobile laser mounting carts can be an all in one solution.

Assembly Line Integration

Our machines can be incorporated into assembly lines for part processing and return to the line upon successful processing and inspection. Parts that do not pass inspection can be placed into a temporary holding location for manual inspection at a later time.

Machine Retrofit and Safety Integration

From time-to-time, a machine may require modifications to extend or improve operational performance. These modifications can be to decrease cycle time, update components, or to add safety features to an existing piece of equipment.

This machine, a chop saw, required installation of a braking resistor to assist with the rapid deceleration of the saw motor. Berran sized the resistor based on the installed motor and fabricated the appropriate housing. The completed assembly was then installed into the machine frame.

In addition to installation of a braking resistor, the controls were updated to include a modern variable frequence drive (VFD) and safety controller. The drive, controller, and all associated wiring was installed, verified, and programmed in-house at our facility.

In this case, the customer requested addition of an air blowoff to the machine. A pressure regulator, tubing, and blowoff were installed per their request.

Custom Vertical Facing

Single-station machinery for milling and facing of plastic parts. Machine features servo controls with recipe-based operation for part-specific operation.

Laser Marker with Visual Inspection

Vision Inspection with Sorting

Our laser marking machines can incorporate vision systems to verify the marking and its contents. In this example, a part is being marked with an alpha-numeric string that is read using an OCR-capable vision system. Once parts are verified, they are sorted and either placed onto the good part conveyor or reject bin chute.

Laser Marker with Robot

Load, Start, and Unload

With a few lines of code, a robot (or co-bot) can be added to one of our laser marking machines. The robot can use a palletizing program to load parts prior to starting a marking cycle. Then, upon completion of the cycle, the robot can be used to unload the marked part.

Laser Enclosure with Rotary

EASY INSTALLATION AND SETUP

5C CHUCK INCLUDED

COMPUTER CONTROLLED

ON-BOARD DIAGNOSTICS

MARKING RECIPE STORAGE

Our rotary accessory features an industrial computer-controlled system with purpose-built software to incorporate laser control, rotary axis positioning, recipe generation and execution, and system diagnostics into a simple to use format.

The 5C rotary chuck can grip parts up to 1-1/16" in diameter. If an alternate size chuck is required, your custom-size chuck can be attached using the included mounting plate.

Powered by an integrated stepper with encoder feedback for precise positioning of the part for laser marking, part marking is repeatable and accurate. The integrated stepper includes controls, drive, and motor all in one package to reduce wiring down to a single cable between the rotary accessory and the computer system.

The included computer controller and software allows for easy operation of the rotary accessory. From the controller, the operator can monitor laser marker status, rotary axis status, recipe selection, and cycle operation.

Additionally, the active laser marker program is displayed to ensure the correct program is loaded along with confirmation of marking information. Based on the model of laser marker used, it is even possible to display an image from the laser marker with an overlay of the marking data.

The rotary axis can be manually controlled via on-screen controls to determine the perfect position for marking. The position can then be entered into the recipe information for future use. The computer can retain thousands of recipes and can be recalled in just a few clicks.

Stainless Steel Construction

Stainless Steel Machinery

Berran offers several optional machine variants within their Eagle line of packaging equipment that use of stainless steel in their construction. Stainless steel is easily cleaned and sterilized to prevent bacterial contamination of food products, and is very durable. It is commonly used for industrial equipment when durability and cleanability are important.

The Eagle T210SS, for instance, is a carton sealer with a stainless steel frame which is suitable for use in food processing and packaging facilities. The Eagle T210SS is ideal for use with wide cartons and features top and bottom drive belts and tape heads for smooth carton sealing operation.
