Lanco Integrated has programmed its machines with Rockwell Automation’s software and hardware for more than 30 years, each one custom built. Lanco turned to Rockwell again in 2020 to help them design and build a machine to produce COVID-19 rapid result test kits. The faster the machine was deployed, the faster it could potentially save lives.
“When we signed on to the project, we were confident we could find ways to shorten our design cycle,” Lanco Integrated President Ed Karabec shared in a Rockwell Automation blog. “The Rockwell Automation platform – including programmable logic controllers (PLCs), software, servo motors, and human machine interface (HMI) – is the quickest way for us to get our machines built and programmed.”
With Rockwell technologies, Lanco simplified machine design, programming, and use – all of which cut delivery time in half.
“Our greatest learning from this is the power of our people – what they are capable of doing with each other and with our system,” Karabec shared. “This has been a true test of stamina, perseverance, partners, and technology.”
