Using ATS’ SuperTrak linear track conveyance system


B&R’s low-maintenance technology is based on 14 years of field experience and offers the industry-proven reliability required for today’s competitive 24 x 7 production environments. The systems are designed for extremely low MTTR rates and ensure maximum uptime. Segments and movers can be easily exchanged without disassembling the track.

In the era of smart manufacturing, integration of automation and IT ecosystems is no longer an option but an absolute requirement. Low-latency, hard real-time synchronization
with all types of servo axes including CNC and robotic systems guarantees high precision ,high-quality production output. B&R’s transport technology is based on a highly decentralized architecture that allows extensive track lengths to accommodate the requirements of any machine.

B&R is using the SuperTrak linear track conveyance system from the Canadian company ATS Automation in order to advance the next generation of industrial transport technology
and enhance the market penetration of this exciting technology. With many years of practical experience implementing its SuperTrak technology, ATS perfectly complements B&R’s automation expertise and core competencies in signal and power electronics, motor design and software.

The impact, resilience, and growth of responsible packaging in a wide region are daily chronicled by Packaging South Asia.

A multi-channel B2B publication and digital platform such as Packaging South Asia is always aware of the prospect of new beginnings and renewal. Its 16-year-old print monthly, based in New Delhi, India has demonstrated its commitment to progress and growth. The Indian and Asian packaging industries have shown resilience in the face of ongoing challenges over the past three years.

As we present our publishing plan for 2023, India’s real GDP growth for the financial year ending 31 March 2023 will reach 6.3%. Packaging industry growth has exceeded GDP growth even when allowing for inflation in the past three years.

The capacity for flexible film manufacturing in India increased by 33% over the past three years. With orders in place, we expect another 33% capacity addition from 2023 to 2025. Capacities in monocartons, corrugation, aseptic liquid packaging, and labels have grown similarly. The numbers are positive for most of the economies in the region – our platform increasingly reaches and influences these.

Even given the disruptions of supply chains, raw material prices, and the challenge of responsible and sustainable packaging, packaging in all its creative forms and purposes has significant headroom to grow in India and Asia. Our context and coverage engulf the entire packaging supply chain – from concept to shelf and further – to waste collection and recycling. We target brand owners, product managers, raw material suppliers, packaging designers and converters, and recyclers.
