Enables new machine design in the beverage industry: XTS

Drinktec, the world's leading trade fair for the beverage and liquid food industry, closed its doors in Munich on 15 September 2017 after five days with a record attendance. More than 76,000 visitors attended the fair, which had a total of 1749 exhibitors across a floor area of about 150,000 sqm. According to the organisers, of particular interest was one of the most important trends in manufacturing, which is the increasing automation of all production processes. An optimum solution to support this trend was one of the highlights at the Beckhoff booth, as Uwe Kraus, Sales Manager of the Beckhoff Office in Nuremberg, explains: “The XTS linear transport system in hygienic design enables completely new, highly flexible machine concepts for the beverage industry. Together with the stainless steel Panels, I/O modules and servomotors, it provides an all-stainless steel control system for filling plants. In conjunction with our technologies for cloud-based automation, users can realise technological advances and optimised efficiency in production including lot size 1 manufacturing, product personalisation and maximised system availability.”
