Efficient and energy-saving: packaging solutions with PC-based Control

At FachPack 2018 Beckhoff will exhibit the next development step in packaging with the XTS eXtended Transport System. The XTS implements flexible changes of format in a few seconds with a minimum of components. At the same time the consumption of resources and energy is optimised and the machine footprint is reduced. As a special highlight, Beckhoff will present the hygienic variant of the XTS: made completely of stainless steel for particularly demanding packaging applications.

Further trailblazing innovations – from IoT to motion – await you at booth 331 in hall 3A.

System-integrated IoT connection optimises cloud use

System-integrated IoT connection optimises cloud use

The series of ultra-compact Industrial PCs is usable for universal automation, visualisation and communication tasks. The C6015 offers sufficient computing power for use as an IoT Edge device: from collecting, processing and providing process data to the more complex tasks of an IoT gateway. With the C6017 a larger number of interfaces and an integrated UPS are available. As a software tool TwinCAT IoT supports all popular standards such as OPC UA, MQTT or AMQP and thus enables secure communication with the cloud.

Plant optimisation through TwinCAT Vision

With TwinCAT Vision Beckhoff integrates image processing directly into the overall controller. Track-and-trace, high-precision measurement and an exact visual inspection increase production efficiency and quality.

Reduced machine footprint with the AMP8000

Reduced machine footprint with the AMP8000

The AMP8000 servo motor with integrated servo drive minimises the control cabinet. That saves material, space, costs and assembly work.
