Materials Handling and Transport Systems
modern logistics, materials handling systems represent an important element for
optimising material flows within a company. Here, the coupling is of great importance
for a precise and smooth process.
Couplings for roller conveyors
So-called roller conveyors are mainly required for
transporting small goods of low weight and compact dimensions. Here, the small
goods concerned are moved along transport rollers arranged transverse to the
direction of conveyance. Driven systems are used whenever goods being conveyed
are to be stopped so that transport can be resumed at a later point in time.
For this reason, these conveyance systems often work at varying transport speeds
or in cycle operation. Couplings of the Semiflex
range are used with servomotors to drive the conveyor rollers. In order to
achieve turn-key conveyor systems, individual modules are combined and linked
in a modular system. The space-saving couplings are often used as radially
mounted couplings with split-clamp hubs. The great displacement capacity of the
precision couplings guarantees the setting of the conveying level for
individual component modules.
for belt conveyors
Transport conveyors or belt
conveyors are used for the continual transport of bulk goods such as packages,
workpieces or containers. The actual conveyor is a continuous belt that moves
on load-bearing rollers. In addition, belt surfaces (and hence the coefficient
of friction) can be chosen to allow gradients to be managed without the goods
on the belt slipping.
The complete system is divided
into individual segments, each with a different task, length and speed.
Deflection stations allow the goods to be transported around corners. The
precision of couplings of the Semiflex range guarantees the
synchronisation and coordination of the individual segments. The compact design
of the coupling supports the compactness of the complete transport system.
