Besides standard automatic rotary table machines, IPTE also offers similar solutions based on a different concept. Carrier concepts can replace large footprint rotary tables. IPTE offers the cell modules AFP and A3D which use standard carrier to process components through up to 5 automatic stations with functions like insertion of screws, pressure check, laser marking, components assembly etc..
In contrary to standard rotary table solutions, the concepts based on carrier systems can link separate processes to one fully automated production line and still use the same carriers. Thus a production start with isolated manufacturing centers can later be transferred into an automatic, linked production line, if the production volume increases. The single isolated centers including their programming remain almost unchanged.
