At this year’s interpack, B&R plans to showcase SuperTrak, a versatile, intelligent conveyor system that represents a key contribution to Packaging 4.0. This smart manufacturing revolution promises CPG producers unprecedented levels of OEE and reduced TCO.
SuperTrak is a new generation of robust, operator-friendly intelligent conveyor technology based on long-stator linear motors. Unlike similar systems available thus far, it offers true industrial-grade reliability and easy serviceability. Its independently controlled shuttles allow mass production of highly customized products, while also minimizing time lost on stoppages and product changeover.
B&R will also be showing how open standards like POWERLINK, OMAC PackML and OPC UA will provide seamless connectivity—the lifeblood of industrial IoT solutions. From the sensor to the cloud, across multi-vendor lines and value chains, this connectivity will bring a dramatic leap in operating efficiency.
There is more information about B&R’s contributions to the future of the packaging industry in the Packaging 4.0 white paper and the special edition of its customer magazine. Both publications will be available at Stand E62 in Hall 6 at interpack.
