Ever since we launched our Automation Series conveyors, we've received requests to bring the aluminum frame and tension release technology to our angled frame lines. Today we're excited to announce that we've done just that with the launch of AS40-Z Angled Frame Conveyors.
The AS40-Z line is built on the same rigid aluminum frame we use for our AS40 and AS40-CD conveyors. It's designed to reduce twisting, which is often the cause of tracking problems in competing conveyors. They also feature the same Tension Release tails, so you can relieve the tension on the belt for quick and easy under-belt cleaning with just the push of a button.
We brought one of the most popular components of our 125Z Series Angled Frame Conveyors – the Z-Track™ mechanism — over to help make it easy to track the belt. As with other Automation Series conveyors, V-Guide belts are an option. They're especially helpful in applications where the conveyors are in hard-to-reach places.
AS40-Z conveyors are available in three styles — Z, L, and R. Z conveyors go from horizontal, to incline, back to horizontal, which makes them ideal for moving product up and over aisles or other equipment. L conveyors are horizontal to incline, which is useful for moving product up from a low discharge height and depositing it into a box or bin. R conveyors are incline to horizontal, which is great for applications that need to elevate product and then connect to another conveyor or machine.
These conveyors are available in widths from 8" to 24" and in lengths up to 20 feet. They can handle loads up to 120 lbs. The most popular angles — 30°, 45° and 60° — are available as standard, while other angles can be requested through special orders.
