The MX-System: Pluggable platform for cabinet-free automation


  • modular system with direct main power connectivity, pluggable IPC controllers, I/O, couplers, motion, relays, and more on scalable baseplates

  • direct mount to machine frame

  • IP67-rated with robust metal housings for control cabinet-free machine and system concepts


The MX-System

Intelligent transport systems for small part handling in fabrication: XPlanar and XTS

The XPlanar "flying motion" system:

  • 2D product transport with 6 degrees of freedom 

  • free-floating and flying planar movers with zero surface contact

  • compact system design and reduced machine footprint


The eXtended Transport System (XTS):​

  • flexible motion profiles

  • highly compact linear transport system

  • changeovers on the fly

  • manufacture down to lot size one


Transform your productivity with Beckhoff’s powerful CNC solutions

  • single hardware and software solution

  • universal and open

  • scalable for all performance classes

  • universal for all machine types

CNC solutions

AMP8000: The distributed servo system for that eliminates enclosures

  • servomotor with integrated feedback and servo drive

  • unchanged motor performance with almost identical design

  • minimizes machine wiring and footprint

  • eliminates enclosure cabinet and the space, cost, and assembly it requires
