Free mobility of a mover 4 m/s jerk-free Free mobility of several movers Synchronous movement of a group with constant application of force F = constant Synchronous movement of a group XTS | Basic functions The XTS system enables a new class of functions that can be used at the same time in several places. Completely new, particularly flexible: transport and positioning tasks are economically solvable with little effort. Drive Technology The linear motor with NC and more degrees of freedom 420 Free mobility of an individual wireless mover The individual mover can be moved like a linear motor along the entire path, since it makes do without cables. It can arbitrarily start, stop, brake, accelerate and drive to positions. Like a linear motor with NC, an individual mover can be synchronised to external motion profiles, thereby achieving maximum flexibility. Production speed of up to 4 m/s over the entire path An individual mover can be addressed sensitively – without jerking and with maximum positioning accuracy. The jerk-free acceleration profiles even allow the transport of open liquids. Less wear, less maintenance The use of XTS leads to less mechanical wear, since only the mover needs mechanical bearings. Gears, belts, guide rollers and clamps are no longer necessary. Due to the high positioning accuracy, the compensation of inaccuracies as required in common transport solutions is unnecessary: there is no stretching of chains due to load and wear, re-tensioning of toothed belts or mechanical backlash during load changes. Apart from the payload, only the small mass of the mover is moved. Synchronous movement in the group Movements with constant force A mover follows another with a defined force. It can apply a “clamping force” while at the same time following a movement, for example in order to hold a product. For other applications the force can be limited so as not to place an unnecessary load on a product under any conditions. Synchronous movement of a group At any place on the path during movement, groups can be formed that stop together or drive past processing stations with a specified speed profile. The size of the group (number and spacing) can be changed dynamically. Free mobility of several movers The movers can all be moved independently of one another. They can take up absolute positions along the entire travel distance. In addition, they can be moved relatively to each other and always avoid a collision with their neighbour.

Push product, adapt product spacing, reduce or increase product speed Clamp and move product Use of the basic functions Interruption-free production flow From the combination of the basic functions, product flows can be kept constantly in motion with XTS. Since the movers in the XTS operate independently of each other, it is possible to stop and process individual objects without having to interrupt the entire process. Viewed from the outside the production flow is maintained. Drive Technology Push product, adapt product spacing, reduce or increase product speed The movers of the XTS system can always run with the flow of product. No return trip or return stroke is necessary. The transported material can be accumulated and grouped during the movement via the dynamic buffering. Clamp and move product Through the combination of the synchronous movement of a group and the application of a constant force, a product can be clamped and moved in a clamped condition. Movement is controlled at all times and at all places on the transport path. 421 We reserve the right to make technical changes.
