When automating a new process, one must consider numerous devices such as PLCs, robots, cameras, feeders, conveyors, grippers and many more. The “master” of the automation equipment is usually a PLC or a robot controller with strong communication capabilities.
It can take up to several days, and longer, to develop and implement the communication protocol you need, to accurately transmit data from the master to its peripherals.
How to implement a new communication protocol faster and at a lesser cost?
To speed up and simplify the programming of a new automation process that incorporates a flexible feeder, Asyril provides
- preconfigured hardware Gateways that allow communication through different fieldbuses (Ethernet/IP, Profinet, Ethercat and CC-Link).
- PLC software plugins compatible with renowned PLCs like Beckhoff, Rockwell or Siemens, and dedicated robot plugins for established manufacturers like ABB, Fanuc, Stäubli, Universal Robots and many others.
Regardless of the automated process, one must go through numerous steps to build a complete machine that will satisfy the goals of your customer. After analyzing and understanding the customer needs, the System Integrators will typically start with the design and procurement phase, followed by the construction and assembly of the automation equipment. Next are the start-up and programming phases. It is during these last two critical phases that the different peripherals have to communicate with each other and for which a plugin will substantially reduce the programming time required...
The compatibility of our plugins with your specific PLC or robot programming environment highly facilitates integrating the Asycube or SmartSight. A system integrator no longer needs to spend a lot of his time developing new communication protocols. Saving several days of work, he can concentrate his efforts on building a more powerful machine and increase overall performance.

EVCO Plastics saved time and money with the Asyril URCaps
EVCO Plastics, a custom injection molding company in Wisconsin, USA, implemented the Asyril URCaps to integrate an Asycube flexible feeder directly with a Universal Robot. The Asycube commands, such as backlight flash or execute vibration sequence, were directly available from the robot teach pendant, which highly simplified controlling the feeder. This plugin has saved Evco Plastics several days of work.
