Rugged environment, rugged machinery / by Erica Bacon

Our customer needed a Tuff conveyor for their robot cell. It had to work through a lot of machining debris and withstand the weight of several raw engine block castings.

We developed a two-strand top roller chain conveyor. Raw castings travel from a machining station along the conveyor, accumulate using indexing stops, and are positioned using a lift and locate device.  Once located, they are unloaded by a workstation robot.

The top roller chain conveyor makes heavy duty part accumulation easy, and the design minimizes obstruction by debris.
