Belted conveyor systems have been conventionally employed for transport in industrial applications for quite some time. While these systems have proven to be enormously useful, they do come with limitations on performance, maintenance, and usability. What should machine engineers do when a higher speed of product transport is required, possibly even varying speeds of transport across the same transport line?
B&R’s service-friendly intelligent transport technology combines optimized productivity and flexibility with industrial-grade reliability to ensure maximum uptime.
B&R focuses on best-in-class reliability and easy service
B&R’s low-maintenance technology is based on 14 years of field experience and offers the industry-proven reliability required for today’s competitive 24/7 production environments. The systems are designed for extremely low mean-time-to-repair (MTTR) rates and ensure maximum uptime. Segments and movers can be easily exchanged without disassembling the track.
Scalability and seamless robotic integration
In the era of smart manufacturing, integration of automation and IT ecosystems is no longer an option but an absolute requirement. Low-latency, hard real-time synchronization with all types of servo axes including CNC and robotic systems guarantees high-precision, high-quality production output. B&R’s transport technology is based on a highly decentralized architecture that allows extensive track lengths to accommodate the requirements of any machine.
IFP Automation, through its partnership with B&R, is using the SuperTrak linear track conveyance system from the Canadian company ATS Automation in order to advance the next generation of industrial transport technology and strongly enhance the market penetration of this exciting technology. With many years of practical experience implementing its SuperTrak technology, ATS perfectly complements B&R’s automation expertise and core competencies in signal and power electronics, motor design and software.
