Automation equipment supplier Festo will showcase a range of new developments for the processing and packaging industry.

For the first time in the UK, in collaboration with Siemens, Festo will demonstrate the Multi-Carrier-System, a new linear motor track, that delivers a flexible and modular transport solution for industrial automation.

The collaboration brings together the controls expertise of Siemens with Festo’s linear motor and mechanical guidance technology.

Festo will also show its latest products and demonstrate systems for Industry 4.0.

The Multi-Carrier-System addresses the need for flexibility in modern manufacturing environments, driven by increasingly complex product diversity and high levels of mass customisation.

Its freely definable and configurable linear transport rail can be easily integrated into existing intralogistics systems.

The movement of carriers within the system can be readily adapted to deal with different formats, sizes and types of product.

Applications can include food and beverage processing with quick seasonal changes.
