montrac® shuttles showcased superior technology advantages at the leading trade fair ‘AUTOMATE 2022’

Trendsetting intralogistics with unique system benefits "Made in Germany" at 'AUTOMATE 2022': The latest product innovations of the montrac® automation and transport system were recently presented in Detroit (Michigan) at the largest solution-based exhibition for automation, robotics and motion control in North America. "Our digitized and fully automated montrac® transport solutions are particularly well-adapted to the requirements of AI-based industrial automation by means of speed, flexibility and energy efficiency”, emphasizes Sven Worm, CEO & Chairman of the Board of montratec GmbH.

"The considerable interest in the new and further developments of montrac® proofs that we are exactly on the right track with our concept of comprehensive digitization and our focus on sustainable, flexible and economical intralogistics solutions and are currently outranging some major competition internationally in terms of technology”, says Worm. "Our team of experts on site at the leading trade fair in the USA recorded an increase of 30 percent inquiries compared to the previous year, which for us is a very motivating success."

Several hundred visitors came to the montratec booth to learn about the wide range of applications, the new product portfolio and the unique bundling of system benefits of the intelligent montrac® conveyor system. With transport shuttle speeds of up to 55 m/min, montrac® is one of the fastest rail-guided intralogistics systems and is certified for a wide range of production environments (ESD, EMC, drying room and up to clean room class ISO 5). Since each transport shuttle can be removed or replaced individually from the running system with a single hand movement without stopping the system, montrac® is characterized by a maximum degree of operational reliability. This is also supported by the app-controlled 24/7 online monitoring of the montrac® system via remote access. Unique sensor modules in each transport shuttle ensure collision-free and smooth-running transport. Due to its modular design, montrac® offers maximum flexibility with individually adaptable transport routes even over several floors including integrated buffer zones, enabling more free production space and a smooth material flow. A particularly low CO2footprint of montrac® intralogistics solutions is ensured by low-voltage drives of 24 V and the use of energy-efficient DC power, which is only tapped during transport from each transport shuttle directly at the drive via the busbar integrated in the monorail.
