In the article “Exploring the Design and Benefits of Modular Conveyor Systems,” we delve into the world of conveyor systems, seeking innovative solutions to enhance material handling. Traditional extrusion systems often face issues with hardware loosening over time, causing vibrations that can disrupt operations. To combat this, many machine designers turn to steel, a sturdy but costly material. However, for more cost-effective and flexible options, aluminum extrusions come to the forefront.
Aluminum extrusions, like those from Robotunits, offer superior performance when designed with the right geometry and modular features. They incorporate fasteners, standard screws, and centering insertion pieces that ensure hardware remains securely in place. This design achieves remarkable tensile strength—up to 4 tons per fastener—and prevents loosening, all while minimizing material costs and assembly time through mix-and-match extrusions.
The advantages of modular automation systems extend seamlessly to conveyor systems. Modular automation system, which integrates various conveyor styles and options, offers durability and design flexibility, including choices in drive options and motor positions. This integration streamlines your processes, saving on costs and precious design and assembly time.
One of the featured options in modular automation system is the “Just-in-Time Belt Conveyor System.” This series provides an efficient solution for quick deployment, compatible with the modular automation system. It offers a wide selection of dimensions, belt features, belt speed, and drive options, allowing you to tailor a conveyor system to your specific needs. With frame heights ranging from 40 to 80 millimeters and frame widths spanning from 40 to 1,200 millimeters, the Belt Conveyor series can handle loads of up to 800 kilograms.
