Beckhoff at Drinktec 2017

High flexibility, lot size 1 and personalised products:
with PC-based control.

At Drinktec 2017, Beckhoff, the specialist for PC-based control technology, will be demonstrating automation technologies that enable you to rethink the design of machines and processing systems. As a highlight, Beckhoff will also be introducing the Hygienic Design version of its linear transport system XTS, which is setting new benchmarks for system implementations in the beverage industry. By combining this with technologies for cloud-based automation, Beckhoff has created the basis for tailor-made product concepts. The high level of flexibility enables you to not only manufacture personalised products but also lot size 1, and it also increases your system’s availability: you can minimise downtimes for changeover or unscheduled troubleshooting.

Take the next step towards optimised production efficiency: with PC-based control.

The Beckhoff team is looking forward to meeting you!

Maximised flexibility and a minimised footprint: XTS.

The highly compact linear transport system XTS is changing the way how machines are designed: when used as part of a PC-based control solution, XTS gives you maximum freedom of design with a minimum of components.

  • a wide variety of geometries
  • take up less space
  • with a smaller footprint
  • and less maintenance effort


Maximised flexibility and a minimised footprint: XTS.

The Drinktec highlight: XTS Hygienic.

Highly flexible and optimally easy to clean: ideal for designing filling systems. With the XTS Hygienic in stainless steel, Beckhoff combines the advantages of rotary and linear systems for demanding environmental conditions:

  • all surfaces resistant to chemicals and easy to clean
  • no concealed edges or undercuts
  • seals resistant to high pressure cleaning
  • higher availability of your filling systems through reduced changeover and downtimes
  • greater flexibility and higher production speed

Efficient bottling plant with the XTS

The Drinktec highlight: XTS Hygienic.

Entirely contained in stainless steel: Hygienic control system for filling systems from Beckhoff.

With the new XTS Hygienic version, Beckhoff rounds off its portfolio of Hygienic Design components. It gives users the option of equipping filling systems with a control system entirely contained in stainless steel: stainless steel Control Panels, stainless steel I/O modules, stainless steel servomotors and the XTS Hygienic.

EtherCAT: The “beverage” fieldbus.

A high-performance fieldbus from field level to management: the EtherCAT communication standard developed by Beckhoff enables complex Ethernet star topologies to be replaced by simple line or tree structures. This provides for outstanding performance, flexible topology and easy configuration.

  • ideal EtherCAT performance with optimally matched Beckhoff components
  • maximum openness
  • widely used throughout the industry
