Up to now, traditional drive systems have been used in packaging machine engineering. Hereby the operating process is controlled mechanically via cam disks fitting on a line shaft, making sure that all processes maintain their synchronism even in case of breakdown. As a consequence, product conversions need considerable setup time. The use of modular concepts in construction and in drive engineering allows a simple and fast and therefore low-cost product changeover. The use of single drive systems requires the substitution of the mechanically coupled functions by data-processing links. This paper presents a new feeding conveyer of a cartoning machine using two interconnected servomotor drives as well as a collision avoiding strategy. The mentioned strategy has been worked out and is currently being tested on a test bench
