EMS conveyors


I have a new project coming, and we have the opportunity to start a complet line simulation, but I do have some question about EMS conveyors

How can I create the movement in X and Z with the correct speed per station???

The information about the cicle per station will come form my OEM.


Thank you

in the most cases you can skip the z-movement and calculate it into the loading time. If you need the z-movement (e.g. in 3D), then you can model it with two transporters, one transporter on the monorail (track) with loadbay type track,  an other transporter on this transporter for modeling the z-movement. You can set acceleration in both axis.


For x- positions you can set sensors on the track and stop the transporter there. The same you can do in z-direction.
