Cleandown and washdown – GFX hygienic is available in two versions to suit differing customer needs; cleandown and washdown.
Cleandown for wet cleaning – Using a structure that is very similar to a standard GFX, this version has been modified to fit the Hygienic Design motors, allowing wet cleaning with benign liquids.
Remove surface contamination – The cleandown version is designed for pharmaceutical, food and other processes where the system requires wet cleaning to remove surface contamination.
Washdown for cleaning in place – Simple cleaning is possible in hygienically demanding environments, including foaming agents, hot washing and pressure washing.
Access to all surfaces – The construction allows complete access to all surfaces, removing pooling traps and enabling optimal cleanability so nothing accumulates.
No tiny gaps – Joints between all components are sealed and the bearings are protected against lubricant egress and ‘flushing’ with a solid cover and labyrinth seals.
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 workstations 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.
