Track Conveyance Systems

Track Conveyance Systems

Track Conveyance Systems also known as Transport Track Systems, or Track Conveyors, represent a distinct approach to material transport within industrial settings, setting them apart from traditional belt conveyor systems. In track conveyors, a linear servo-driven system is employed, with shuttles attached to the servo, often utilizing magnets for secure attachment. These shuttles are precisely directed to various targets or stations, as defined within the software, using the servo motor system.

IO-Link Wireless and Contactless Power offer significant enhancements to track conveyance systems. These could be integrated, providing real-time control capabilities and reducing the need for scheduled maintenance. The traditional belt conveyor systems, as contrasted with track conveyors, are powered by electric motors and use belts to transport pallets, leading to wear and the requirement for regular maintenance. In contrast, track conveyors, driven by linear servo systems, offer greater precision and speed, functioning individually, thus enhancing machine efficiency. Each shuttle on a track conveyor system acts as an independent unit, providing precise positioning and speed control, and the systems incorporate features such as auto collision avoidance. Ultimately, track conveyance systems, when integrated with advanced technologies like IO-Link Wireless and Contactless Power, hold the potential to revolutionize material transport, particularly in scenarios where precision and speed are of paramount importance.
