Independent Cart Technology

There’s a Better Way to Move with MagneMotion and iTRAK Technology

Independent cart technology is a new approach to linear motors. Traditional conveyors rely on gears, chains and belts. Independent cart technology uses magnets to precisely control motion with frictionless propulsion! The result is fewer parts to worry about, reduced energy consumption and the ability to quickly start and stop loads without losing control or putting wear on parts.

Flexible Design and Quick Change

Customers want more options and customized products. To accommodate the demand, machines need to be flexible and easy to change over. Fortunately, we’ve got that covered. Curved or straight sections of track can be combined in endless combinations to suite your design and space requirements. And once it’s built, changeovers can be as simple as selecting a different software-configured move profile.

Reduce bottlenecks and increase output: Each cart in the system is its own intelligently controlled axis of motion. That means that the carts can speed up or slow down based on where other carts are in the system. The system also tracks what each cart is moving, so there’s no need to slow down for sortation. The result? Fewer bottlenecks and increased output.

Whether you're moving material within a single machine or from one end of your facility to the other, independent cart technology can help you do it better. All our motors and carts are IP65-rated or higher and modular which make them a great choice for a wide range of applications. They can be purchased as a customized, fully assembled unit, as individual components or as a mix of custom and standard parts so you always get just what you need.
