Beckhoff at FachPack 2019

How to increase resource efficiency in packaging, right from the start

As specialists for PC-based control technology, at FachPack 2019 in Nuremberg, Beckhoff will be demonstrating how intelligent automation solutions can be used to implement more environment-friendly packaging concepts. The focus will be on the XTS eXtended Transport System, which enables significantly reduced machine sizes with a minimum number of components. XTS maximises the savings potential for material and energy consumption. Further PC-based control highlights in Hall 3A will include the XPlanar motor system, system-integrated image processing with TwinCAT Vision and the EtherCAT G high-speed fieldbus with a transfer rate of 1 Gbit/s.

We look forward to seeing you at booth 331.

Reduced footprint thanks to compact design and versatile installation position: XTS

The XTS eXtended Transport System supports the concept of environment-friendly packaging solutions in several ways: greatly reduced footprint, more precise and thus resource-saving packaging processes, and ultra-fast format changes in seconds, down to batch size 1. At FachPack 2019 we will show you how XTS can help you optimise the environmental performance of your packaging line.

Increased flexibility: track management with the TC3 XTS extension

With the XTS Track Management software functionality, motor modules and their movers can be moved between several systems. Innovative machine concepts make packaging lines even more flexible.

For demanding environments: XTS Hygienic

For demanding environments: XTS Hygienic

Highly flexible and ideal for primary packaging in the food and pharmaceutical industries: With the XTS hygienic option in stainless steel design, Beckhoff increases availability through reduced changeover and downtimes, even in demanding environments. It features easy-to-clean surfaces, high-pressure cleaner-resistant seals and no concealed edges.

XPlanar: flying magnets with six degrees of freedom

XPlanar from Beckhoff sets new standards for packaging machines: free-floating planar movers move jerk-free and without contact at up to 4 m/s over planar tiles arranged in an arbitrary layout. Travelling magnetic fields provide for exact and highly dynamic positioning. The result: maximum freedom in product transport, maximum flexibility in positioning, and optimum machine and system design.

TwinCAT Vision: integrates image processing

TwinCAT Vision: integrates image processing

TwinCAT Vision from Beckhoff integrates comprehensive image processing functions in the controller, including detection, measurement, identification, pick-and-place and quality control. The result: advanced packaging machine concepts that increase competitiveness and investment security.

EtherCAT G: ultimate I/O speed up to 10,000 Mbit/s

EtherCAT G: ultimate I/O speed up to 10,000 Mbit/s

Beckhoff presents EtherCAT G for use in highly complex applications. Using EtherCAT G, the current EtherCAT transfer rate of 100 Mbit/s can be increased by a factor of 100. The branch concept enables the integration of 100 Mbit/s EtherCAT segments and reduces the lead times in large networks through the parallel processing of the segments.

AMP8000: taps new savings potentials

AMP8000: taps new savings potentials

The AMP8000 servomotor with directly integrated servo drive paves the way for the minimisation of the control cabinet. The performance values of the motor remain unchanged with a virtually identical size. Reduction to a single coupling module supplying several servomotors via a single cable saves material, space, costs and mounting effort.
