The XLR provides the same sectional, flexible Quickdraw design while adding the convenience of a full slip roller conveyor bed, ensuring even products of assorted sizes and random orientation can be accumulated at once, said Dave Helgerson, chief technology officer for MagStar. It delivers precise product movement in multiple lanes, making it well suited for accumulating numerous products before they enter a work cell or operation. It is also compatible with auxiliary devices such as metering stops and locate nests for more sophisticated material handling applications. Helgerson adds, The XLRs modularity allows it to be configured simply for new or retrofit applications, with lengths up to 120" offered and custom lengths available in 1" increments.
