Less noise, no lubing with Accutronic
Jan 1, 2005 12:00 PM
FKI Logistex is providing the Accutronic, a new flat-belt-driven, powered live-roller accumulation conveyor with 24-volt electric actuation. Accutronic offers quiet, positive transportation and true zero-pressure accumulation of cases, cartons, and totes.
Because Accutronic is belt-driven, it reduces noise and eliminates lubrication requirements of chain-and-pad-driven live roller conveyors. Accutronic's 24-volt electric stepper motor lift mechanism also eliminates the need for the compressed air that powers pneumatic-driven live roller conveyors.
During transportation, Accutronic's drive belt is electrically raised to engage and power the rollers. When the conveyor's photo-eye sensors detect the presence of product within the next downstream zone that requires upstream accumulation, the belt is lowered, disengaging power from the rollers.
Accutronic is offered in 3', 6', 9', and 12' lengths with a standard zone length of 3'. Available widths between frames are 16", 22", 28", 34", and 40". Options include 2" or 3" carrier roller centers and carrier rollers with ABEC precision bearings. Accutronic's operational modes are singulation, dual-zone, auto-slug, or slug.
