An Adaptive Machine delivers four decisive advantages:
- This new technology uses independent shuttles moved by permanent magnets along a long-stator linear motor track. Product movements can be configured individually, including variable speed and acceleration as well as batch grouping and ungrouping. The dramatic increase in processing speed makes your line more productive.
- Track systems can be fully integrated. This not only reduces the overall footprint of the line, but also improves processing precision. Individual processes can be perfectly coordinated with one another. External devices like robots can be synchronized in hard real time. High-precision processing is even possible on curve segments.
- Short changeover times make a huge difference in day-to-day operation. Change products or formats with a tap on your HMI screen. Downtime for mechanical changeover can often be eliminated entirely. Adding or removing shuttles is also extremely fast and easy."
