Flexibility boost for a pill bottle cap assembly line

Fully automating production processes that were once manual or semiautomatic presents special challenges when the cycle times involved are extremely short. With workpiece carrier systems operating on a fixed cycle time, accommodating the differences between individual processing stations’ motion profiles involves setting up multiple stations of a given type to operate in parallel. This prompted Goldfuß Engineering GmbH in Balingen, Germany, to deploy its first Beckhoff eXtended Transport System (XTS) on a medical pill packaging line.
