During PACK EXPO, Beckhoff unveiled the next revolution in its packaging technology. Many new products made their North American debut during the show, including the eXtended Transport System (XTS). Now available in the U.S., the XTS implements flexible changeovers in seconds with less required components, the company says. At the same time, the mechatronic solution minimizes machine footprint and reduces raw material and energy consumption.
Beckhoff will also present the latest updates on XTS technology for packaging applications at the Innovation Stage on Tuesday, Sept. 24 at 11 a.m. The presentation is titled: “Faster, smaller, smarter: Drive technology advances power next gen packaging.”
Beckhoff’s TwinCAT Vision also made its North American debut during the show. With this system-integrated vision platform, the company adds image processing capabilities directly into the packaging machine controller. Track-and-trace, high-precision measurement, and precise visual inspection increase efficiency and quality in packaging and production.
