Dematic Corp. has introduced the Rapistan Modular Conveyor System, a totally integrated and flexible package conveyor system designed for improved carton control, quiet operation, and low energy consumption.
All of the conveyor modules are built on a universal side channel. Modular conveyor sections available to build a system include roller or belted straight sections, curves, inclines/declines, right angle transfers, steerable wheel diverters, and more. The modules utilize many common components, so unique parts are minimized and fewer overall parts are required to be kept on hand, making it easier to maintain.
The Rapistan Modular Conveyor System is scalable and flexible. Configuration changes are simple to accomplish, as modules can be added or moved whenever a company's business changes. The system can also be easily retrofitted into an existing conveyor system.
The Rapistan Modular Conveyor System can be configured with motorized rollers, standard AC drives, or variable-frequency drives. Carton control is optimized through an available segmented belt conveying surface with automatic tracking and self-tensioning belts. Controls are mounted onboard and are connected with CAN Bus, allowing parameters such as conveyor speed, accumulation mode, and sleep mode to be adjusted locally or from a central location.
