Powered Roller Conveyor Systems
Supplied by: Manual Handling Australia
Whether straight transfers, accumulation, around bends or through gates, powered roller conveyer with inbuilt accumulation has been proven in many industrial situations.
The basis of the system is the tough polyurethane belt, which enables each grooved roller to be independently driven from a common line shaft.
Simple, yet providing the whole system with reliability and flexibility; plus minimum power consumption due to no loss of energy through skid friction.
The only friction point is the long life acetal spools slipping on the line shaft during accumulation.
Standard Features of Powered Roller Conveyor Systems
- Spacers between drive spools
- No pinch points or chains
- Well guarded universals available
Simplicity is the key – very little to go wrong, will often keep operating after severe accidental damage. Replacement parts readily available.
- Powered roller conveyors will carry a large range of box sizes, some types of bags and long lengths of timber etc.
- The modular construction allows system to be altered or added to very easily.
- Stands easily height adjustable
- Allows rollers under the product to stop when it comes up against a physical stop.
- Accumulation pressure is adjustable
- Side frames are continuous, uncluttered and easy cleaning.
- There are no dirt traps or hard to clean spots
Tapered rollers give accurate powered transfer around bends,solving that common trouble spot
The gate allows pedestrians access through conveyor lines. As the gate lifts up, the drive on the gate disengages.
Policeman, Merge and Oscillator
The merge is a low friction transfer.
The oscillator angles the rollers so the product runs straight on the second conveyor. The policeman stops collisions. Operated by carton pressure only.
The accelerator speeds up a series of rollers to create a gap between cartons.
The chain transfer is used to transfer product onto another conveyor line at 90 degrees.
The rollover stop is a physical stop that comes up between the rollers to stop the product.
They can be air operated or by a mechanical handle.
A linebrake allows a series of rollers to lower accumulation pressure, or creates gaps between products.
