Flexlink's Biggest Products Launch Ever - X85 Conveyor, Pallets, Controls and Youtilize(TM) Production Logistics Software

FlexLink's vision is to be the first choice for production logistics, and the launch of the new X85 conveyor
platform, X85 pallet system, line control and Youtilize(TM) software is a major step towards fulfilling this

"Efficient use of capital, and great flexibility while maintaining total process control, is critical to succeed.
By partnering with FlexLink you get access to tools, knowledge and experience that will help you improve
production efficiency. This means increased throughput and yield in your production, decreased products
in process, and improves your ability to respond to the needs of your customers" says Mattias Perjos,
CEO FlexLink AB.

The new X85 conveyor's capacity and speed sets new performance standards to what a conveyor
system can do. It offers longest in class MTBF and lowest in class noise level. Substantial concern has
been spent on trouble free operation and good factory environment. The conveyor is subject to several
registered designs and patents.

FlexLink's distributed line control allows dynamic speed control, with soft starts and stops. This enables
gentle product handling, and efficient line balancing at considerably lower power consumption. The
concept ensures easy engineering, installation and maintenance.

The new X85 pallet system is a toolbox for single piece flow solutions enabling flexible routing, and full
control of each product in process. There are different configurations in accordance with application
needs, and the pallets are prepared for communication with machines, line control and MES solutions.

"The pallet system and line controls are subject to several patent applications, and their properties allow
more flexible production and reduce the throughput time" says Göran Abbestam, project leader for the
X85 development.

Youtilize(TM) from FlexLink is a MES (Manufacturing Execution Software) that manages all resources
available in the production: operators, machines and parts used; as well as all data and information
needed for the production. It communicates in real time, enabling enhanced production efficiency and
automatic quality assurance.
