The Multi-Carrier-System, a configurable transport system, has been announced by Siemens. In this configurable transport system, the transport carriages, which are driven by linear motors, are flexibly moved to the individual units such as a filling, closing or labeling unit.
The system is said to move freely and exactly synchronously to the process and can be integrated in the existing intralogistics – including seamless loading and unloading of the carriages. The other transport paths remain unchanged.
The modular concept (see video below) allows a quick conversion of the machine to different formats, other product types or seasonal requirements.
The integrated concept allows control of the transport movements and motion control functionality as well as the coordination of additional machine module.
The modular servo controller and the motion controller also reflect the integration of Industry 4.0 systems.
The system provides OPC Unified Architecture (OPC-UA) messaging enabling open integration into Industry 4.0 architectures and enterprise systems such as SAP.
