Innovative Planning Software for Assembly and Packaging Applications


New software from Rexroth’s Linear Motion and Assembly Technologies group simplifies conveyor system planning and application by using 3D solid model and electronic catalog technology to put all required product information within easy reach. The new software, called MTpro, saves OEMs, integrators and end users time and money in the planning, layout and procurement of components and complete modules for assembly and packaging applications. Coupled with Rexroth’s existing planning tools, including FMSsoft, online 2-D CAD, 3-D models and chain calculation tools, MTpro provides the most extensive array of tools available. The electronic product catalog contains all components and systems for VarioFlow modular chain conveyors, TS-family assembly conveyors, aluminum structural framing, and Manual Production Systems. Together with easy-to-use search and filter functions, the comprehensive product information accelerates optimum component configuration. The integrated product configurator supports users during the selection of technical parameters and directly displays the chosen configuration as a 3-D model. Users can transfer 3-D models and 2-D drawings into their own systems via direct interfaces to all common CAD programs. In addition, MTpro also enables retroactive modifications to components and parts list information in selected CAD systems. With its simple administrative functions, this new software speeds up the entire procurement process. The user transfers the configured components into an order list using a drag and drop function. This list includes all necessary order information from the part number and additional ordering parameters to component weight and packing units. The software’s user interface can be tailored to individual working styles and can be run directly from the DVD without any installation.
