At the Ligna in Hanover, the Zimmer Group presents a completely new and highly innovative category of automation components. The Modular Transport System is a modular, fully networked and scalable system of transport units for a wide range of requirements in automation and linked production.

Maximum productivity and flexibility

The individual modules move with very high dynamics and precision on a defined travel path which realizes the high-precision mechanical movement through a linear guide in combination with a rack and pinion drive and the transmission of bus signals or electrical energy via a concealed sliding contact transmission. Depending on the requirement profile, one or more shuttles can be autarkically or electronically coupled, synchronously on any length of travel with speeds of 0-2m/s and a positioning accuracy of 0.05mm. The maximum payload of the individual modules is 100kg. The continuous circulation and the modules on the track are achieved with a change of direction of travel through high-performance converters.

IDS NXT - Novel Vision app-based sensors and cameras

App Your Sensor®! What would smartphones be without apps? They would be mobile phones that can't do much more than make phone calls and sending SMS. Apps turn smartphones into intelligent assistants with any number of different tasks. Transferred into the world of image processing, this app-based approach transforms cameras and sensors into customised, smart vision sensors.
