AN INNOVATION IN THE INDUSTRIAL MOTION CONTROL FOR PACKAGING AND MATERIALS HANDLING.
From mechanical line shafts to electronic line shafts and from here to independent mover technology.
This system of control of the linear motor system is modular and scalable and it allows for independent control of multiple magnetically propelled movers on a track (on straight or curvilinear paths). The rotary driven chains, belts, and gears will no longer be necessary. Through simple and effective software profiles, the iTrack system combines the mix of continuous and intermittent motion, direct drive motion control, and high-performance servo control, in order to increase production rates by more than 50% and to reduce downtime for changeovers, overall machine size and periodic maintenance.
The capabilities of this new system are revolutionary for a more flexible control, also preserving profitability in shorter production lines.
