P&F160 – Power & Free
floor conveyor technology

The P&F160 is the latest expansion of our extensive floor conveyor range, and is based on exactly the same profile and drive system technology as the 140-system conveyors. This heavy-duty conveyor is a self accumulating Power & Free system, setting a new benchmark when it comes to handling the largest, and heaviest, unbalanced jigs. Developed for applications where the need for Power & Free technology is required in sections such as storage areas, ovens etc. where space is at a premium, but where general process areas only require fixed pitch operation.

The supreme accuracy in guiding is secured by the 4 horizontal guide bearings as well as the fully adjustable “Free” track. Compared to traditional skid systems or roller conveyors, the P&F160 operates with high reliability and smoothness. This is due to the limited use of drive units and sensors, requiring a minimum of effort and interference from the control system.

Key advantages of the P&F160 system include:
• Possibility to accumulate in line
• No need for expensive control systems for accumulation sections
  due to self accumulating design
• Operate at different process speeds on the same line
• Low maintenance – less moving sensible parts require less attention
• Full flexibility – complete freedom during the design stage as well as the
 advantages from traditional Power & Free systems
 (switching gates, accumulation zones etc.)

Technical specifications:
The P&F160, 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, which engages the in-wards pivotal links underneath the trolley.

The trolley body is made of 6 mm. laser cut and folded plates and is equipped with 4 sealed load carrying wheels and 6 sealed horizontal wheels for side guiding. Each trolley and waggon set can be separated from the power chain and accumulated in line. Conveyance with loads in rise &  fall sections is possible due to a uniquely designed link between chain carriers and trolley.
