Machine automation is a core focus at Indumation which takes place from 6th-8th February 2019 in Belgium. A key part of automation is the use of guidance systems that provide the necessary linear or circular movement. HepcoMotion’s guidance systems are a must when it comes to optimising production, thanks to the reliability and low maintenance qualities of its products. From track systems for robot automation to complete production lines performing multi-assembly tasks, Hepco’s products have been developed to provide designers with a multitude of solutions.
Visitors will be able to see Hepco’s GFX Guidance System for Beckhoff XTS (eXtended Transport System). This solution utilises Hepco’s PRT2 and 1-Trak guidance systems to work with Beckhoff’s XTS circuit linear system to meet the needs of higher duty XTS applications where motion profiles and long-term durability requirements are particularly demanding. Movers can be individually controlled and thus frees throughput time from limitations usually caused by the slowest process: movers can dwell on a station longer or shorter if needed. The combination of technologies from market leaders Beckhoff and Hepco provides users with a robust, high production and flexible solution that will revolutionise production processes in many manufacturing applications. This system is ideally suited to a range of applications, such as a variable speed lane divider to sort randomly positioned items into separate lanes, or a double-sided system for a compact application that requires multiple motion profiles.
Hepco’s sales engineers will be pleased to discuss your requirements at Indumation, Kortrijk Xpo, Belgium, Hall 6, Stand 6-16.Back
