Linear Transfer Systems: Introduction

  • A linear transfer system is used to intelligently control the flow of goods in a production line. Linear transfer system is the most advanced transfer solution for manufacturing or production processes across the globe.
  • Linear transfer systems are used to transfer a lot of heavy materials from one phase of production unit to another phase of production. In the assembly industry products are need to be transferred from assembly station to the next assembly station for completing the production.
  • Two main types of linear transfer systems are used in factory automation: linear transfer units and precision conveyors.
  • These systems are mainly used in applications such as pad and screen printing, microelectronics, food industry, medical technology, and cosmetic industry.
  • The global linear system market is projected to expand at a rapid pace during the forecast period owing to increasing demand for linear transfer systems in the automation industry. Linear transfer systems are the backbone of the automation industry.
