In connected factories, everything must interact seamlessly and quickly. This also applies to the transport and positioning of products and materials. The linear motion system ctrlX FLOWHS from Bosch Rexroth is designed to achieve this through flexibility and high speed—with less space required. The compact solution can be configured flexibly to suit various topologies and applications.
The linear motion system ctrlX FLOWHS is an integral part of Bosch Rexroth’s automation toolkit ctrlX AUTOMATION. It gives users access to all features, including interfaces for interoperability with other systems and communication and security standards thanks to ctrlX IOT. Using the embedded software ctrlX MOTION, it is also possible to operate robots and other axes in a synchronized manner.
ctrlX FLOWHS is based on the control platform ctrlX CORE with the operating system ctrlX OS. Based on a modular construction kit, it has plug and play functionality. Straight and curved segments as well as switches can be combined as necessary to create specific topologies, lengths and routes.
Its high dynamics helps to ensure the necessary performance levels in modern factories. With acceleration of up to 10 G and a speed of 5 m/s, the system allows quick movements. Multiple movers with a scalable payload of up to 2.5 kg (individually) or 5 kg (in a group) offer suitable performance and precision. The U-shaped design improves routing and minimizes friction to ensure a constant maximum speed, even in curves.
