We produce conveyor technology from aluminium support elements, which can be used to move lightweight components weighing up to 500 kilograms by means of chain drive, accumulating roller drive and belt conveyor drive. The lightweight conveyors supply parts or buffer them, for instance during the final assembly phase.
Lightweight conveyors – concept examples
All conveyor systems can be combined with one another as they are modular and highly flexible.
The two-strand chain conveyor with a transverse displacement device is suitable for the automated delivery of large parts weighing up to 500 kilograms, for instance during the final assembly phase. Due to its robust construction, the chain conveyor can be used when roller and belt conveyors reach their limits.
The two-strand chain accumulating roller conveyor transports and buffers modules and assemblies in the final assembly phase – up to a weight of 250 kilograms.
Conveyor systems with strip belts form a level surface and serve to buffer parts.
Continuous conveyors are used, for example, to transport workpiece carriers back to the workstation. Accumulating roller chain conveyors, chain conveyors and roller conveyors can be used here, and can also be combined with one another.
