The new X85 line control system from FlexLink Systems is based on modular thinking for easy engineering and fast ramp-up. Increased line efficiency is offered through easy line balancing and a high dynamic buffering capacity with a low queue pressure on the conveyor.
Seamless speed adjustments in the X85 line control system allow gentle product handling, higher product stability and less line disturbances. The use of distributed line control leads to reduced and simplified maintenance, simpler line cabling and lower power consumption.
“The control system has been developed specifically for the X85 pallet system,” explains Göran Abbestam, project leader for the X85 development. “With control box, maneuver box and power box as standardized control products, we have created a system where these all act together as bricks in the building of an X85 pallet system, providing unlimited functionality for the future.”
Within the line control package, there is also a drag & drop software library with programs for all functions including the logistic system.
“Today, we offer a control system for fast production start-up with minimised control design that is simple to install. We know that the reduction in engineering and ramp-up time is significant,” concludes Göran Abbestam.
