PC-based control: The control system for the packaging industry


PC-based control for sustainable packaging concepts

The packaging industry is rethinking its solutions. Now more than ever, the pressure is on to find future-proof answers to current challenges. From September 27 to 29, Beckhoff will be taking part in Fachpack 2022 in Nuremberg to showcase its flexible automation solutions for sustainable packaging concepts. Our technology highlight is the new MX‑System, which enables completely control cabinet-free automation solutions for packaging machines. Visitors can also expect to see the XPlanar and XTS intelligent transport systems, which facilitate exceptionally flexible product transport with a minimal plant footprint. What’s more, the addition of No Cable Technology to the proven XTS system is opening up unprecedented degrees of freedom in system design.

We look forward to seeing you in Hall 2 at Booth 314.
