ACOPOStrak is a revolution in adaptive manufacturing that extends the economy of mass production down to batches of one. Parts and products are transported quickly and flexibly from processing station to processing station on independently controlled shuttles.
ACOPOStrak is a generational leap in intelligent, flexible transport systems. Its absolutely unique design delivers decisive technological advantages for adaptive, connected manufacturing. Produce small batches efficiently and benefit from the higher margins of personalized products. Extend your digital transformation to include motion control and mechanical design.
Smart-factory motion control brings you key advantages: maximum availability, high-speed transport and positioning, rapid changeover and fault-tolerant high quality. ACOPOStrak boosts your overall equipment effectiveness (OEE), multiplies your return on investment (ROI) and accelerates your time to market (TTM).
Sorting on the fly
ACOPOStrak diverters allow you to sort out individual defective products as soon as they are identified, saving the additional waste of further processing – including primary and secondary packaging materials. This opens up new dimensions of resource efficiency and boosts the quality factor of your OEE.
ACOPOStrak shuttles are hot-swappable and can be replaced in seconds – without any tools – for unprecedented availability. To switch products, the operator simply places the wheels of a new shuttle on the guides, and it is held in place by the force of permanent magnets alone. Include a pit lane in the track layout, and changeover and service can be performed with zero downtime.
ACOPOStrak can be expanded flexibly by adding track modules and processing stations. This in turn gives your machine the scalability to adapt to changes in demand. That's true investment security that multiplies your returns. ACOPOStrak gives you more output per square meter of machine footprint.
Highly profitable, even in mass customization
Individualized processing, zero-downtime changeovers and modular track segments that morph into any form: ACOPOStrak has everything it takes to enable mass customization in batches of one. It will boost your OEE, accelerate your ROI and shorten your time-to-market.
Track morphs into any form
Your ACOPOStrak design
The versatile ACOPOStrak transport system grants you complete design freedom: Arrange track segments to perfectly match the needs of your site and your processes. All types of open and closed track circuits can be laid out on a grid as needed. The core of the track system is a linear motor assembled from four types of modular segments: a straight segment, a 45° segment and two 22.5° segments – one curved to the right, the other to the left. With its modular, flexible design, ACOPOStrak inspires highly innovative machine designs that adapt to the needs of your manufacturing processes.
Smart system software
Developers also benefit from process-oriented programming. They simply describe the rules that define the product flow on the track, rather than having to program a multitude of axes and shuttles individually. Autonomous traffic control with integrated collision avoidance takes further work off the hands of developers.
Faster to market
We provide an extensive range of software functionality to get ACOPOStrak up and running with minimal time and effort. Sophisticated simulation functions let you test your application code early in development before deploying it on the real hardware. This shortens your development times considerably and helps you get your machine to market faster.
