Flexible Transfer System Moves Assembly Operations Into Factory of the Future

Finding the right transfer system for high-speed applications can be a challenge — especially when manufacturers want those same systems to support the company’s ability to modify and flex their production platforms in response to changing market demands.

This Technical Article details a range of advanced conveyor and transfer systems that meet those needs, incorporating Industry 4.0 capabilities through built-in sensors, more sophisticated controls and advanced motor and drive technology. These new systems include the Bosch Rexroth ActiveMover, which provides:

• Significantly increased transport speeds from advanced linear motor technology
• Flexibility to create a customized transfer system using individual modules that can be adjusted as needs change
• Increased flexibility of process flows from free programming and control of each individual workpiece pallet
• Compact, space-saving design that includes 90-degree turns
