At the Hannover Messe, B&R showed for the first time how ACOPOStrak can be combined with conventional conveyor belts. This brings the flexibility of the intelligent ACOPOStrak track system together with the low cost of a conveyor system – the perfect recipe for more
cost-effective mass customization.
Seamless shuttle hand-off
One intelligent station on the path through the production line is all it takes to create a mass customized product. Product transport is handled almost entirely by low-cost
conveyor belts – except for the one station where the products are personalized. That’s where the intelligent ACOPOStrak comes into play. Since both systems use the same
guide rails, the transitions between them are seamless.
Mass customization for brownfield plants
ACOPOStrak combines the motor and electronics into a single unit with the power electronics and a powerful processor integrated right in the motor housing. No additional
inverters or motion control units are required, making the intelligent transport system extremely compact. Thanks to the modular design, it is easy to integrate ACOPOStrak segments of various lengths into an existing plant
