Line-shaft conveying systems are an adaptable and economic solution for transporting a range of products. JMP Australia can now offer a complete range of line-shaft conveying options, whether it be a single conveyor or a turn-key system.
The prominent feature of line-shaft conveyor is the drive mechanism which consists of a motor gearbox driving a continuous shaft mounted under the conveyor frame. The shaft has drive spools fitted along the length of the conveyor that provide driving force to the rollers via polyurethane drive bands.
Materials used on conveyor frame and roller are dependent on environment. Typically powder-coated mild steel conveyor frames are matched with galvanised rollers and stainless steel frames are matched with either stainless steel or PVC rollers. All line-shaft conveyors include fitted plastic line shaft guards as an added safety feature.
JMP’s Line-shaft conveyor range includes modules such as bends, merges, diverts, pneumatic blade stops, drop-stops, chain driven transfers, pneumatic pushers, line brakes and personnel gates.
Line-shaft conveyors are available stand-alone or as a part of a turn-key system, such as JMP’s robotic palletising and packing systems.
Engineering services such as project management, installation and commissioning are also offered on larger systems.
