In keeping with the increasing demands of digitalisation, the Linear Transfer System enables reconfiguring of production lines in real time.
A wireless connection between the Linear Transfer System and the Smart Carriage itself allows the system to react in real time, and because the system is equipped with Mitsubishi Electric Servo Motion Technology, it can allow for such self-directing actions as synchronisation with Mitsubishi Electric’s MELFA industrial robots.
Built on standard components, the Smart Carriage retains detailed information about its course and is able to track and trace the condition of goods at any given time on the conveyor. It is told where to go, but it has the ability to get there autonomously.
An advanced data memory enables the Smart Carriage to detect products, determine optimum routes and destinations, collect and store product information and communicate between stations, higher level MES systems and databases.
