Nova Systems has a solution for an obsolete thermoformer chain index drive. Once popular Baldor/Sweo drives can now be upgraded with the next generation ABB (ABB acquired Baldor) servo drives. The existing SMCC motion card can be reused, as can the existing servo motor.

Many manufacturers of vacuum thermoforming equipment used Veeder-Root counters to control the motion and timing of the index, the form press, the trim press and the stacker. These Veeder-Root counters have been obsolete for some time and are getting harder to find in the surplus market. Nova Systems has successfully engineered a machine upgrade to eliminate the Veeder-Root counter.
