The Transmodul is the world’s first transport robot for packaging machines. It has an inductive power supply. This allows the Transmodul to move freely. Data and signals are transmitted wirelessly. To hold cartons and products in place during transport, the Transmodul is equipped with a vacuum blower that generates a vacuume of 0.04 bar. The maximum acceleration is 3 G. This allows it to reach speeds of up to 4.5 metres per second. The Transmodul runs on a rail system that passes through all the sub-machines. The Transmodul has made it possible to build redundancy into packaging machines for the first time. If one Transmodul fails, the availability of the machine is not affected. Transport tools are exchanged for a size change. A maximum of 32 Transmoduls can move on a rail section.
