The perfect concept for your applications

The flexible transport system (FTS) from Rexroth is a unique technical solution for transporting and positioning materials and workpieces. Where traditional rollers, chains or belt systems reach their limits for any reason, FTS is the perfect concept. It delivers higher accuracy, allows for freely programmable individual and synchronized movements, and is faster than traditional systems. The completely non-contact drive concept particularly ensures particle-free transport in vacuum.




FTS - the concept

FTS is based on standard linear motor technology, whereby each single workpiece pallet/carrier is moved individually. The system can even perform complex movement patterns without any problems by moving several carriers independently of each other.


Extremely precise

FTS not only offers extreme positioning accuracy but also high repeatability. This is accomplished by the sensors between the single motors as well as the motion control system YM .

Individually scalable

FTS adapts to every size requirement in production. The system can be very easily upgraded with several motors for particularly long production lines. The carriers can both easily accommodate high weights and move light objects with the same positioning accuracy.

Flexibly adaptable

The system offers the maximum degree of freedom and options. The software provides for the free programmability of all carrier movements – with I/O synchronization where required. A quick conversion to other products is therefore very easy. The mechanical system adapts to every machine.
