Low-noise conveyor system with fast assembly

Future-proof production, assembly, and packaging lines must be able to deal with ever smaller batches, more frequent product changes, and a large number of product variants. Chain conveyor systems used in production therefore have to be easy to configure and assemble. Fast response times and time-to-market provide a major competitive edge for machine manufacturers and users. Low-noise operation is also crucial for this type of system. Rexroth’s new VarioFlow plus chain conveyor system fulfills all of these requirements, supporting both manufacturers and users.

IMS-I Integrated Measuring System from Rexroth: Precise, Robust, and Compact

The more advanced and further developed IMS-I integrated measuring system from Rexroth also achieves maximum positioning accuracy in heavily contaminated work environments. The compact solution for ball and roller rail systems is inductive by design and offers repeat accuracy performance that rivals that of a glass scale. The incremental IMS-I records measuring distances of up to 4,500 mm. Several runner blocks can be positioned independently of each other on the same rail.

Upgrade for Motion-Logic systems of Rexroth: New functions for efficient engineering

With the latest system version of IndraMotion MLC and IndraLogic XLC, Rexroth increases the efficiency in engineering and opens up new degrees of freedom for innovative functions. The upgrade comprises, among other things, simplifications in machine safety, robotics and hydraulics integration. With the software environment Open Core Engineering and the new interface technology Open Core Interface, machine manufacturers can also access the control core and independently implement individual functions. To this end, a number of programming languages based on high-level languages is available to them.

Fluid intelligence open for Connected Industry

The networking of all automation technologies with Connected Industry is becoming increasingly important at an ever faster pace. With a finely scalable range of Motion Controls for hydraulic applications, Rexroth has now integrated fluid technology in these concepts as well. The Motion Controls use decentralized intelligence and open standards for communication to fulfill the requirements for horizontal and vertical integration. They act autonomously and integrate themselves independently in a changing context. Machine manufacturers can thus combine the physical advantages of the hydraulic system, such as high power density, with the requirements of Connected Industry.

The packaging machine of the next generation – world premiere and novelties at the interpack

“Manufacturers of packaging machines have always been pioneers when it comes to the use of new automation technologies. In this way, they have been able to increase the productivity and flexibility for ever smaller batch sizes in the last few years. The trend in this direction continues and therefore, a generational change is in the offing in the field of packaging machines. The packaging machines of the next generation are cabinet-free, adaptive, simple, efficient, and ready for connected industry."
