Linear transport systems evolve, take on advanced robotic functions

Aug. 9, 2023
With recent technological breakthroughs in mechatronics, robot-style functions can now come in a dramatically different format with powered end effectors mounted on intelligently controlled linear transport movers

Beckhoff is taking the next step in linear transport flexibility with No Cable Technology (NCT), a major extension of its proven eXtended Transport System (XTS). NCT provides contactless power supply and synchronous real-time data communication directly to XTS movers.
