Festo's Multi-Carrier System is a transport system designed for companies offering custom products or both standard and custom products packaged on the same line and has features relevant to Industry 4.0 such as an electromechanical design and OPC-UA. CouFesto's Multi-Carrier System is a transport system designed for companies offering custom products or both standard and custom products packaged on the same line. Each transport carrier in the Multi-Carrier System is designed to move freely and independently from all other carriers. Carriers can be moved towards each other without the risk of collision and are easy to position. In addition, several carriers can be grouped together and moved synchronously at fixed distances. The Multi-Carrier System incorporates options that are relevant to Industry 4.0 such as electromechanical design for economic production down to batch sizes of one and decentralized sensors and intelligence incorporated within the work piece carriers and drives. The modular servo controller and the motion controller also fully reflect the cyber-physical integration of Industry 4.0 systems. The Open Platform Communications United Architecture (OPC-UA) interface enables open integration into Industry 4.0 host environments. Other features include a cam disc movement that is synchronized with the process and the Multi-Carrier-System can be integrated into existing intralogistics. It has customizable acceleration, speed, and grouping and can work quickly even with large loads.
