Sophisticated conveyor systems are major elements in production logistics solutions, enhancing the total efficiency in production, testing, and packaging lines. The requirements on the equipment are increasing over time, typically on additional processing, flexibility for new products, higher capacity, and lower operating costs. With the launch of its X65 conveyor, FlexLink offers lower TCO (Total Cost of Ownership), a drastically lower noise level, and an innovative design for the future.
The development of the new X65 conveyor platform was done with input from leading end users and OEMs to meet the requirements of tomorrow, while offering added value to the needs of today.
The new X65 platform offers twice the strength compared to the standards of today. The doubled conveyor strength is designed to have a dramatic effect on the service life and maintenance intervals of systems installed. Also, layouts can be made simpler as fewer drives and transfers are required for a given layout due to the increased maximum conveyor length. To the user, this has a substantial, positive impact with less complexity and a lower cost of installation.
The X65 conveyor is designed for low friction, low power consumption, and a long service life. High efficient drive technology further reduces power consumption. Dependent on the application and choice of drive unit, power consumption is 8-44% less compared to previous high-efficiency drive units by FlexLink.
X65 is capable of the double speed compared to previous conveyor generations—120 m/min.
In most common applications, the noise level of X65 is on a typical office level, and compared to the industry standards, it is up to 80% less.
For automated single piece flow applications, the X65 pallet conveyor system offers high quality production at low cost. The X65 pallet system has standardized functions for the handling of products up to 1 kg. The pallets and functions are prepared for the integration of process control systems, such as track and trace and MES functionalities.
