Go with the ctrlX FLOWHS

In connected factories, everything must interact dynamically, seamlessly and quickly. The same applies in intralogistics too. The aim is to ensure short throughput times in production by optimizing material flows. ctrlX FLOWHS is the key here – a linear motion system which brings flexibility and high speed to manufacturing, with maximum precision and reduced space requirements.
