1. Industry background
The traditional packing machine is a device which pack unpacked or small packed products. It’s been a trend that there are more and more industrial robots in automation with the booting productivity, the simplified process and the higher security. Our packing machine improve based on the ordinary， and use with Internet. Via Haiwell HMI, users can real-time monitor the health of device, view the history data, alarm information and remotely control the device on PC, cell phone etc. Connection chart as follow：

Users can also real-time monitor the on-site equipment, even if they are away from the site. There would be some benefit, that reduce the time of works to maintain the equipment, greatly improve labor efficiency.
FIG.3 The SCADA display on mobile phone
The device can be controlled via application of cell phone and applet of WeChat from thousands of miles away. Customers can reasonably array maintenance works according to the situation. intelligent warning, efficiency handling of on-site faults.
3. Field application
The mooncake, which made by mooncake production line, go along a conveyor belt one by one to in front of packing robot, and arrayed automatically. The robot pack them to achieve the purpose of second packing.
The video of packing machine
Mooncake transport: Mooncake are carried by conveyor belt to in front of packing robot, and arrayed by mechanism front of robot. The arrangement can be modified according to customer requirements. The on-site device as follow：
