Rockwell Automation iTRAK 5730 small-frame intelligent track system

Friday, 05 June, 2020 | Supplied by: Rockwell Automation Australia

The iTRAK 5730 small-frame intelligent track system from Rockwell Automation uses independent cart technology to support smart, flexible and efficient machines, improving throughput in multi-product applications.

Independent cart technology provides improved machine flexibility, better traceability and increased uptime. By using magnetic propulsion, the individually controlled carts can quickly start and stop with high precision, which reduces machine wear and is energy efficient. The technology also manages changeovers using preconfigured move profiles that can be implemented with the push of a button from an HMI.

The iTRAK 5730 system has a 50 mm minimum pitch that makes it suitable for primary packaging applications, such as flow wrapping, end load cartoning and form-fill-and-seal pouching. The system also easily integrates into a manufacturer’s architecture, providing analytics that help optimise energy use, monitor parts wear and reduce downtime.

The iTRAK 5730 system can help customers attain greater agility in their packaging and assembly lines, without compromising on quality or safety. Alongside providing a smarter form of motion control, the iTRAK 5730 also offers integrated safety. Features such as safe torque off, Safe Stop 1, a SIL 3, PLe safety rating and the ability to create safety zones help increase confidence in machine safety.

Furthermore, simulation capabilities allow users to calculate throughput on the iTRAK 5730 system. Users can also create a digital twin to virtually design, commission and demonstrate the system, and to virtually train workers. Standardised object-oriented libraries can also help create a consistent user experience and accelerate time to market.
