Beckhoff is back at PACK EXPO Las Vegas 2023! In Lower South Hall booth 6335, you will experience what’s next with the latest in fully integrated, modular and adaptive automation for packaging and food & beverage processing machines. 


We will showcase the gravity defying XPlanar system with levitating and flying movers propelled by freely arrangeable motor tiles and the dynamic eXtended Transport System (XTS) with its new No Cable Technology (NCT) extension. These intelligent motion solutions enable rapid, flexible changeovers and shrink packaging machine footprints.


Bring your toughest challenges to our booth so we can help you achieve the adaptive manufacturing and digital transformation concepts of tomorrow – today. Get your free expo pass using our comp code: 49J37.


Don’t forget to attend not one, but two of our Innovation Stage presentations this year!

Intelligent transport system for small part handling in packaging: 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

  • XTS and XPlanar accommodate hygienic designs

  • compact system design and reduced footprint



The eXtended Transport System (XTS):

  • flexible motion profiles

  • highly compact linear transport system

  • Product and package changeovers on the fly

  • rapid format changes down to lot size of one


Maximum performance and system accuracy with Beckhoff kinematics and motion control

  • PLC, motion control and robotics functions can be executed on a single Industrial PC and software platform

  • over 23 different kinematics from 6-axis kinematics in addition to Cartesian gantry, various 2D parallel kinematics and 3D Delta kinematics are available

  • TwinCAT software library includes tracking functionalities for synchronizing a robot with a moving object, so it can pick up workpieces from conveyor belts or mechatronic products like XTS and XPlanar

One automation software packages it all together: TwinCAT 3

  • bundles PLC and motion control with LabVIEW™, MATLAB®, Simulink®, C++, Machine Learning and more in one environment.

  • platform includes the HMI, data acquisition, secure cloud connection via TwinCAT IoT and cloud-based analysis functions via TwinCAT Analytics

  • support of OPC UA, MQTT and AMQP guarantees secure and vendor-independent data communication

  • real-time image processing software, TwinCAT Vision
