P&F420 – Power & Free
overhead conveyor technology

Introducing our versatile Power & Free system, capable of handling loads of up to 10,000 kg. This system ensures the simple and dependable accumulation of wagons in various configurations, including in-line, 45°, and 90° buffer zones, with a minimal accumulation distance of just 400 mm. Smooth trolley transfers from one conveyor circuit to another reduce the need for transfer units, ultimately cutting down on system costs.

What sets our system apart is its unique trolley and accumulation stop design, ensuring instant and highly reliable separation of wagons in the accumulating zones. The use of modular components offers you the freedom to configure your conveyor circuit layout according to your needs.

With a commitment to tested quality components, you can trust in the system’s reliable operation, even in demanding working environments. Additionally, the conveyor system provides noiseless accumulation through non-friction disengagement of the trolleys from the conveyor chain drive.

Key Specifications:
The Power & Free conveyor type P&F420 comprises two CALDAN straight profiles. In the upper “Power” profile, a cardan chain is driven by one or more drive units. In the lower “Free” profile, wagons are powered by power chain carriers connected via pivotal pawls to the trolley’s front and back.

Both the chain carrier pitch and accumulation distance are customizable to meet your specific requirements.

Wagons can be separated and accumulated in in-line, 45°or 90° within accumulation zones, based on your handling needs.

When a trolley is routed into a closed accumulation stop or reaches the “tail” of the previous trolley, the trolley’s accumulation lever is lifted, and the pawl units are lowered, disengaging the trolley from the chain carriers.
