Rexroth introduces VarioFlow elevators for small packages
To ensure gentle transport, soft overhead rollers apply light pressure to the product from above, securing it against the flocked chain surface to carry it through vertical curves and straight sections. The rollers are mounted to guiderail profile, which is custom contoured to each application. This simple design allows for optimum arrangement of the overhead rollers to match the needs of the product being conveyed, and adjustable guiderail brackets allow for easy field adjustment at any time. Inclining or declining sections can also be combined in one conveyor with horizontal transport at the lower and/or upper levels to reduce costs and system complexity.
The new, economical elevating and lowering system rounds out VarioFlows already extensive set of options for safe, gentle product transport. It is available for both 65 and 90 mm VarioFlow chain widths to accommodate a wide range of smaller packets and cartons. With numerous chain styles and widths, fixed or variable speed motors, a large selection of vertical and horizontal curves, VarioFlow modular chain conveyors provide the ideal platform for virtually any packaging or material handling system.
