It May Look Quite Complex, It Probably Is, But When You Use The Conveyors, It’s Like A, B & C

Talk directly with your future designers and engineers on what conveyors will be installed to your commercial production line, industry space or wholesale processing plant. Because vertical conveyors designed and manufactured on your behalf, fulfill numerous functions. For instance, a pneumatic vertical conveyor could be used to lift heavy weights as much as five hundred pounds.

Go online to view clear photographs and demonstration videos and you will see that the conveyor is rectangular or cylindrical in shape. In cases, it looks no more like a case that holds a central processing terminal for hardware and software processing. A pneumatic device raises and lowers a conveyor at different levels. Production capacity of these conveyors is phenomenal with the capacity to work as fast as one hundred and fifty feet per minute.

Shock absorbers at both the top and bottom of these cylinders ensure that processed or manufactured products are safely transported from level to level as intended in the specific manufacturing process. Conveyors are also powered by chain links and/or rollers. These latter installations are mainly utilized for the carriage of lighter loads. To all intents and purposes (for the customer) conveyor speeds will be programmed to operate from 30 to 90 feet per minute.

The speed is controlled via ‘infeed and outfeed’ conveyors. Features of vertical conveyors also include sensing photographic eyes, safety tunnels to handle entry and exit points and a CAM activated braking system. Returning to the typical shape and look of these conveyor units note that they are housed in protective frames.  Not quite at the speed of some of these conveyors, but time has run out here. It is hoped that this brief outline was useful as an introduction.
