Limited shop floor space coupled with the need for greater throughput and product flexibility were the primary challenges of this machine, in conjunction with the accuracy needed to precisely place various small and sometimes flexible components. Complete integration was also essential with the line’s vision system, which monitored the in-line and end-of-line product quality.
The customer was also looking to improve both throughout and output volumes for what are small but precise commodity products that face demanding constant use in agricultural applications.
The iTRAK solution deployed by Maga Active is comprised of independently controlled movers running on straight and curved paths, instantly removing the limitations of fixed-pitch systems. Its highly innovative capabilities combine both linear and rotary motion, resulting in a flexible, fully integrated solution that can increase production throughput, reduce maintenance and overall machine size.
