Versatile conveyor built on a rigid aluminum frame featuring tee slots for rapid accessory mounting
The frame is the backbone of the conveyor. A sturdy frame helps to ensure positive tracking throughout the life of the conveyor. That’s why we designed ours with a box-frame construction that resists both latitudinal and longitudinal deflections. Conveyors 18” and wider feature a rigid aluminum/steel frame.
On any conveyor, the belt pulls to the longest point on the conveyor. By using a crowned pulley — that’s higher in the center than at the ends — we’re able to ensure proper tracking in most applications without the use of a v-guide. The straight knurling provides positive traction, but allows the belt to float slightly from side to side without damage.
Tension Release Tails flip up at the push of a button to relieve tension on the belt. This makes it easy to clean under the belt. A gentle push locks the tail back into place with tension and tracking setting retained.
All Automation Series conveyors support optional v-guide belting, which works to keep the belt centered in applications with side loading/exiting or reversing.
Optional nosebar tails allow for transfers of small products between conveyors. The tighter 11mm diameter of the pulley reduces the gap between pulleys.
Backlights are used in a wide variety of machine vision applications to provide contrast for part inspection or robot orientation. The contrast from the backlight allows for better resolution from the vision system than reflective lighting can provide.
