With its drive gears formed directly into the rollers, our PosiGrip accumulation conveyor has no separate sprocket or gears and no welded drive components. The rollers are powered by smooth-operating and quiet, synchronous belting in a positive drive. Since there is no metal-to-metal contact, no lubrication is required and the system does not generate oily, messy components.
All electrical components are self-contained within the side frame, which eliminates the need for wiring back to PLCs and reduces the cost of field wiring. It is ideal for both clean environments such as electronic component manufacturing and food and beverage processing, as well as tough, rugged applications where non-contact between conveyed product is crucial.
Accumulation zones are driven by the motorized rollers, each with a drive card with settings that allow easy adjustment of speed acceleration and deceleration. The drive roller stops as product reaches the photo-eye at the discharge point of the zone, virtually ensuring that no contact takes place. Zones can be individually controlled for specific assembly areas and are available up to 75” long and 48” wide.
Around the Curve
PosiGrip accumulation conveyor can be configured to convey product around virtually any degree of curve, while maintaining non-contact, zero pressure accumulation.
A gate section is also available utilizing PosiGrip technology.
