Jan. 30, 2018 – With the upgraded modular system of the VarioFlow plus chain conveyor system, Rexroth says it is now offering users a series of standardized solutions for specific conveyor functions.
The application spectrum now includes everything from machine interlinking to special ESD solutions, as well as secure transportation tasks in abrasive environments and stainless steel designs. The new drive concept contains a centre drive and a transmission kit, with which a direct drive can be upgraded to a transmission drive. According to Rexroth, the system enables flexible, customized solutions, while saving space and offers low noise. In addition, the MTpro planning software supports project planning and with it, the ability to make short-term adjustments to changing market requirements. For use in abrasive environments, the system now includes new compact clean-rated conveyor section profiles in stainless steel and stainless steel slide rails. Moreover, users can transport sharp-edged products directly on a steel-plated conveyor chain.
With the latest upgrades to the offering of this modular system, users can now benefit from VarioFlow plus in the area of sensitive electronics production, as well. The ESD system helps deliver the safe avoidance of electrostatic build-up, offers a high chain tensile strength of up to 600 newtons and can also be used in applications requiring work piece pallet systems.
