HepcoMotion and Beckhoff – HepcoMotion works in partnership with Beckhoff to create the GFX system, a high-end track system that provides the support and rigidity required for precise XTS applications.
Flexible – The Beckhoff XTS Transport System uses linear motor technology to independently drive movers around a track. This allows work processes of different duration to be combined, on the fly product changes, and the addition or removal of work stations as needed.
Precise and reliable – GFX provides the transport path and mechanically guides the movers along the motor modules at the defined speed, with great precision, ensuring accurate alignment and resistance to deflection.
Long system life – GFX is designed to accommodate complex, high-speed motion profiles requiring extended duty cycles.
Robust – GFX absorbs the considerable forces that act on the movers and workpieces during transport acceleration and deceleration, increasing system life.
Low maintenance – Thanks to HepcoMotion’s V guide technology, the system requires very little maintenance to achieve consistently high performance.
Increased productivity – Together, GFX and XTS offer incredible flexibility in terms of motion profile and application design, facilitating increased productivity.
Perfect for – fast-paced, demanding applications, such as the packaging and manufacturing industries looking to achieve higher parts per minute.
