Why Systems Need to Be Flexible?
Modern manufacturing requires facilities to maximize efficiency and ensure product quality. However, space limitations can hamper these goals.
Integrating elevation solutions from Conveline will grant your facility the flexibility it needs to succeed.
· Provide More Floor Space. Because space is such a desired and important feature of modern manufacturing facilities, Conveline's conveyor solutions strive to free up floor space and allow your operations to proceed flowless.
· Offer Easier Access to Machinery. Using elevation and line egress systems for your conveying needs provides easier access to other machinery, improving efficiency and ensuring personnel can work more effectively.
· Simplify Processes. At Conveline, we strive to design and develop conveyor solutions that cooperate with and enhance your existing processes, ensuring that you can achieve optimal performance.
Types of Elevation Systems
Vertical Elevation Conveyors
o Flexible chain conveyors, like spiral conveyors, are capable of making tight turns and steep inclines for optimal efficiency and space-saving functionality. Using flexible chain conveyors can limit the number of conveyor belts your facility requires thanks to custom infeed and outfeed lengths.
2. Z-Frame Conveyors
o Designed with one or two pivot points, Z-Frame conveyors are among the most well-known elevation solutions for manufacturing facilities. Z-Frame conveyors, also referred to as low profile z-frame (LPZ) conveyors, effectively free up floor space and enable the production process to navigate around obstacles such as other machines.
3. Belt Over Belt Conveyors
o When in need of an elevation solution, you should consider the products you are manufacturing and moving to ensure product safety and quality. For soft, flexible, or unevenly-shaped products, belt over belt conveyors are often more effective.
o Similar to the belt over belt conveyor, the wedge gripper conveyor uses cleated chains to grip products on either side to lift or lower them. Wedge elevators can be custom-built to accommodate products of varying shapes and sizes.
5. Vertical Belt Technology
o When products need to be moved in 90° sanitary applications, vertical belt technology is notably effective. The proprietary staggered sidewall belt provides more pocket capacity, improved product release, and reduced product loss. With an open design, vertical belt solutions are easy to clean, as well.
o The Alpine Conveyor is a compact spiral configuration commonly used as an accumulation or elevating buffer application between machines or as a process step for cooling or drying. It can also be used for line balancing or product changeover purposes.
o Alpines can be configured as an elevating/ lowering system with a single or double serpentine configuration. Uses include an in-line accumulator with entry and exit at different levels or an in-line or off-line accumulator with entry and exit at the same level.
o It is specially used for space-saving applications with 3d layout as per the application and small to medium product handling of food, pharma, automotive, agrochemicals, textile, etc.
