XTS: The Linear Transport System


With the XTS linear transport system, Beckhoff offers a proven drive solution in which magnetically driven movers move along a travel path of fully integrated motor modules. An Industrial PC with the TwinCAT automation software enables the independent control of the movers with individual motion profiles.

The XTS not only replaces conventional conveyor belts, but also enables an innovative design of the entire machine. With the flexible motion profiles, simple to highly complex processes can be realized and the entire manufacturing process can thus be optimized.

Benefits of using XTS include:

  • reduce time-to-market by simplifying software and hardware engineering
  • reduce downtime by automating changeovers using software
  • reduce machine footprint by up to 30%
  • increase output and efficiency by enabling continuous product flow
