High-speed conveyor

A new high-speed chain-driven conveyor capable of reaching speeds up to 500 ft/min while maintaining product stability allows manufacturers added versatility on their packaging lines. Previous conveyor systems from the company reached speeds up to 300 ft/min, but improvements were made in wear and friction engineering, particularly with its effect on plastics--a critical component to longevity in conveyor operation.

Although most conveying systems used for end-of-line packaging operations run at less than 300 ft/min, faster conveyor speeds can be utilized on straight conveyor sections for high-volume throughput of lightweight, low-profile products.

Utilizing the latest controls technology of PLCs, motion-control devices, servo motors and variable-speed zoning, these conveyors are known for providing gentle product handling and precise product placement, particularly for use in the food, pharmaceutical, electronics, printing, and solar industries where these criteria are critical.

The high-speed conveyors can also be integrated with the company's patented Slip-Torque® low-line backpressure technology for handling delicate products, and its and Servo-Infeed® technology for ultra-precise product infeed, such as into wrapping and cartoning equipment.
