Hepco’s GFX has been built specifically to integrate with the Beckhoff XTS. The XTS allows movers to be individually controlled and thus releases throughput time from limitations usually caused by the slowest process: movers can dwell on a station longer or shorter if needed. Longevity and limited downtime are assured if any adjustments become necessary, says the company.

In combination, the two systems enable high-speed motion profiles without compromising positional accuracy, providing a solution for higher-duty applications. The Stäubli TS2-60 SCARA arm matches the abilities offered by the two other systems, in that it allows short cycle times and high repeatability.

Combined with the flexibility of Hepco’s GFX system and the high speeds of the Beckhoff XTS (4 m/s), the system can achieve fast throughput times.
