Flexible product handling system with XPlanar and Vision from Beckhoff

The XPlanar planar motor drive system and vision hardware from Beckhoff in industrial use at the company Syntegon and its product handling platform for secondary packaging.

Syntegon, a global supplier of process and packaging technology for the food and pharmaceutical industries, is working with Beckhoff to develop a product handling platform for secondary packaging. At the heart of this platform are the XPlanar planar motor drive system for product transport and the Beckhoff vision system for optical quality control.

The main task of the system is to merge two product streams into one, which is then further processed in the packaging unit, the so-called case packer. Thanks to the integrated optical quality control with vision and buffering, faulty products can be ejected and reworked by hand. The direct integration of the vision application into the control technology makes the necessary high-precision synchronization and direct reaction of the machine to the current process possible in the first place.
