POWER & FREE FLOOR CONVEYOR
Max load per wagon: 400 kg
The flexible floor based Power & Free system with a standard load capacity up to 400 kg. Reliable accumulation and separation of trolley and wagon sets. Smooth trolley transfer by using conventional switching gates without expensive transfer units. The purpose designed P&F100 combines the flexibility of the overhead power and free conveyors with the stability of conventional skid systems. Ideally suited for painting and assembly processes. Other strong features:
The P&F100, consists of three CALDAN profiles. In the lower “Power” profile the cardan chain is driven by one or more drive units. In the upper “Free” profiles the purpose designed trolley and wagon sets are driven by power chain carriers, via pivotal pawls attached to the front and back of the trolley.
The trolley body is made of 5 mm. laser cut and folded plates and is equipped with 4 sealed load carrying wheels and 4 sealed horizontal wheels for side guiding. Both the power chain carrier pitch and the accumulation distance are designed according to customer specification.
Each trolley and wagon set can be separated from the power chain and accumulated in line, 45° or 90° zones. When reaching a closed accumulation stop or when reaching the tail of the previous trolley, the accumulation lever is lowered and the trolley pawl units are lifted. Conveyance with loads in rise and fall sections is possible due to a uniquely designed link between the chain carriers and the trolley pawls.
