New track and shuttle functions


New applications for B&R transport systems open new markets for machine builders


B&R presents four new components for its mechatronic product transport systems.  New additions to the company’s ACOPOStrak, SuperTrak and ACOPOS 6D portfolio create possibilities in new areas of application, opening up new market opportunities for machine builders and manufacturers.


New shuttles for ACOPOStrak

The new shuttles are optimized for smooth and thus low-wear operation and can be operated together with existing transport units. They also offer greater accuracy, opening up new applications in areas such as the assembly of electric vehicle batteries and medical devices. The increased precision offers key advantages when working with lightweight components such as catheters and insulin pumps. 


SuperTrak – The right angle makes the difference

With a new 90° curved segment, SuperTrak has more layout options with a smaller footprint. Compared to conventional conveyor systems, this adds even more freedom in track design. The new curved element gives machine builders the ability to fit more processing stations inside the track, rather than around the outside.


ACOPOS 6D – Aseptic/Hygienic shuttles

The new generation of aseptic and hygienic shuttles for ACOPOS 6D allows small batches to be produced economically in a wide range of industries. In addition to floating silently over the surface with high precision, these magnetically levitating ACOPOS 6D shuttles now also meet the highest hygiene requirements and are easier to clean. Customers who require a germ-free environment can opt for this aseptic and hygienic variant.

From food and beverages to cosmetics and pharmaceuticals, strict hygiene regulations make every square meter of production space valuable. “Our planar product transport system makes it easier to set up processing stations and allows more output from a smaller footprint, which is especially important in cleanroom applications,” says Lazaros Patsakas, global segment manager for medical device assembly at B&R.


ACOPOStrak – Production technology for cleanrooms

An IP69K-rated variant of the intelligent track system is now available. With this washdown version, the track can be cleaned with high pressure and temperatures up to 80°C and is also completely dust-protected. In this way, B&R is addressing the requirements of industries such as food and beverages or pharmaceuticals, where the highest standards of hygiene are required.
