Offered as an alternative to chain and live-roller conveyor, the corrosion-resistant belts handle loads up to 7,900 pounds per foot and come in five material types: low-friction acetal, low-cost polypropylene, antistatic acetal, electrically conductive acetal and electrically conductive polypropylene with a B1 rating for flame retardance.
Belt-driven, the live-roller conveyor can be configured into zero-pressure contact accumulation, non-contact accumulation and transportation conveyor modes using the same frame and drive components.
In shipping, a two-tier live-roller conveyor system automatically loads the seats into custom trailers for the trip to the warehouse.
This horizontal, live-roller conveyor (190-ABA) is designed for applications requiring accumulation of products without a buildup of line pressure (zero pressure).
This conveyor is actually a combination of a butterfly table and a chain-driven live-roller conveyor. Here, the burned plates are automatically turned over in order to expose the slag that was produced by the burners.
For many small product applications, a line-shaft-driven, live-roller conveyor or a belt-driven conveyor with 2-in.-diameter rollers on 3-in.
Once the load has been formed, the unitizer gently discharges it onto a closecenter, chain-driven, live-roller conveyor for transport to a staging conveyor.
A line-shaft-driven live-roller conveyor uses belts or bands as the power-transmitting link between a drive shaft and the conveyor rollers.
The conveyors from all three levels merge onto a single live-roller conveyor at the ground-level.
There are 133 load stands and both static and live-roller conveyor sections are positioned throughout the manufacturing floor.
High-capacity, chain-drive, live-roller conveyors and 90-degree rotation turntables provide container indexing and accumulation.
