ACOPOStrak, the intelligent factory motion control, will be displayed for the first time at trade shows in Brazil at the B&R stand at Intermach. The main advantages of this new feature include maximum equipment availability, high-speed transport and positioning, fast switching and high flaw tolerance. The equipment increases overall equipment effectiveness (OEE), multiplies return on investment (ROI) and speeds up your time to market (TTM). “ACOPOStrak has a 5g acceleration capability and reaches speeds of over 4m per second with a minimum product pitch of only 50mm”, explains Angelo Spiel, B&R sales engineer in Brazil. “The high-performance system enables you to increase productivity and maximize ROI,” he adds.
ACOPOStrak is considered a revolution in adaptive manufacturing that increases the economy of mass production to single batches. Parts and products are transported quickly and flexibly from one workstation to another in independently controlled shuttles. ACOPOStrak is a generational leap in intelligent and flexible transportation systems. Its unique design offers decisive technological advantages for adapted and connected manufacturing. You can efficiently produce small batches and benefit from increased margins for custom products. It also extends the digital transformation to include movement control and mechanical design, which, due to the extremely low friction, has minimal wear and reduces maintenance of part exchange and collaborates with the environment by avoiding disposal of materials.
