The Metroconnect Motan’s material coupling stations assure that every desired connection of a material to a processing machine in your production process can be made quickly and reliably without contamination.
There are three different material selection options available depending on your requirements:
METROCONNECT U: a manually operated, un-coded coupling table.
METROCONNECT C: a manually operated, coded coupling table utilising state-of-the-art wireless RFID technology.
METROLINK: the most advanced fully automated material selection and distribution system.
METROCONNECT U & C The METROCONNECT U & C advanced manually operated coupling tables are available in both un-coded and coded wireless RFID versions. They are a high quality engineered solution for typical conveying systems. The METROCONNECT U can easily be upgraded to a coded version. Convenient table-top design gives you easy access to every connection. Push-fit connectors allow easy insertion of the material lines into the material coupling table. Quick release lids allow for easy removal and ensure an air tight seal. The large grip gives you lots of space for labelling.
The METROCONNECT C wireless coded coupling table uses RFID (Radio Frequency Identification) technology to check connections and ensure that material is conveyed only when the correct connection is made. The stiffness of the material hose can cause difficulties when making a material connection on a coded coupling table. motan’s specially designed, patent pending, swivel grip solves this problem and allows for hassle-free material changes.
RFID - Technology
Compared to traditional systems, such as barcodes or laser marking, RFID technology offers important advantages in material traceability, verification and validation. Transponder data can easily be read and written. In addition, the data can be extended, modified or replaced. This technology offers to an automated production many benefits because it reduces human error and increases reliability and flexibility.
METROLINK - fully automatic
METROLINK assures that every desired connection of a material to a processing machine in your production process is made automatically and without any chance of cross contamination. One METROLINK tower can manage up to 16 materials being conveyed to 32 machines - all this with a floor space footprint of under1m2
