QuickStick Intelligent Conveyor System

Fast, Clean, Efficient

QuickStick Intelligent Conveyor System

QuickStick® is an intelligent conveyor system that increases throughput and reduces total cost of ownership. It provides assembly and process automation markets with a faster, cleaner, and more efficient alternative to pallet conveyor systems.

Faster Than a Traditional Conveyor

Using MagneMotion® linear synchronous motor technology, QuickStick modules are configured end-to-end, creating an electro-magnetic force to propel carriers up to 10 times faster than traditional systems. QuickStick quickly and easily integrates into the Logix control environment using Studio 5000® Application Code Manager with Machine Builder Libraries. More complex move profiles are possible using a SYNC IT controller with an Allen-Bradly PLC and high-speed vehicle position feedback. Features include:

  • Motors available in regular and high thrust
  • Independent and bidirectional payload propulsion and control
  • Fewer moving parts, which means less maintenance
  • Lower energy requirements due to highly efficient synchronous motors
  • No power/communication cables on vehicles, allowing long travel distances and superior flexibility
  • Built-in anti-collision feature helps prevents damage to payloads
  • CE Mark and UL Recognized

QuickStick 100

High Throughput for Small to Medium Loads

The QuickStick 100 provides fast, efficient, clean automation for payloads up to 100 kg. Permissions to travel are requested and granted in milliseconds, leading to smooth and continuous movement on an unobstructed path. The QuickStick 100 regulates the velocity and acceleration of the vehicle based on the limits specified by the user defined move profile and system configuration.
