P&F140 – Power & Free
floor conveyor technology

The new P&F140 is the next generation of highly reliable heavy-duty power & free floor conveyors, designed for meeting the customer’s demand for handling even larger, heavier and unbalanced jigs. The high accuracy in guiding is obtained by the 4 horizontal guide bearings, and the fully adjustable “Free” track. Requires minimum level of control system compared to traditional skid systems or roller conveyors due to limited use of drive units and sensors.

Further system advantages:

  • high reliability due to the use of well-proven
    standard components
  • very low maintenance – less moving sensible parts
      require less attention
  • full flexibility in the designing stage as the system offers the advantages
    of a traditional power & free system such as: switching gates, line-to-line
    switch, accumulation zones, powered hoists etc.
  • compact profile design minimizes restriction in airflow in spray booths,
    flash offs and ovens. Simplifies the overall plant design
  • compact design minimizes overspray dust settling on the conveyor.
    The dust is not carried through the full system – a lower level of cleaning
    is therefore required.

The P&F140, 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.

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.
