The patented Posigrip roller conveyor is a positive drive gearbelt driven roller conveyor. It has the teeth formed directly into the rollers therefore having no separate sprocket or gears and no welded drive components. The rollers are powered by smooth-operating, quiet and strong synchronous belting in a positive drive. Since there is no metal-to-metal contact, no lubrication is required and very low maintenance plus 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 can also communicate if desired utilizing Ethernet connection to communicate with customers PLC or PC. 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 products are crucial.
Accumulation zones are driven by the motorized rollers, each with a control card with settings that allow easy adjustment of speed acceleration and deceleration. The drive roller stops as product reaches the sensor 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.
PosiGrip accumulation conveyor can be configured to convey product around virtually any degree of curve, while maintaining non-contact, zero pressure accumulation.
Pop up transfers as well as gate sections are also available utilizing PosiGrip technology. Click here to learn more.
