Conroll offers a conveying solution for small products. This new system is ideal for conveying any small object that can stand minimal line pressure buildup. The conveyor has individually powered rollers on 1.5-inch centers, which can move goods as small as 3 inches at a very low pressure level. Typical applications are for books, paper goods, cans or beverages in 6 packs, and larger cans and pails for paint, vegetables, chemicals or other ingredients, as well as batteries and consumer electronic items. Even heavy goods, such as auto batteries and consumer electronic items, are easily conveyed with minimal pressure build-up.
The conveyor's drive system employs plastic spools on a powered mini-lineshaft connected to each roller with round polyurethane belts. The spools transmit sufficient torque to drive the carrying rollers but slip upon overload. The result is low pressure, low noise, and low power consumption. The conveyor can move even small and unstable products can be conveyed and is a fraction of the cost of tabletop chain and plastic belt conveyors, according to Conroll.
Between frame dimensions can range from 6 to 24 inches ,and speeds are easily adjusted from 10 to 80 feet per minute. Power is derived from energy efficient 24-volt DC motors. The line-shaft is housed completely within the extruded aluminum side frame, so there are no exposed moving parts, other than the rollers themselves. Conroll offers these conveyors completely assembled in pre-wired 60 inch modules. One DC motor can drive 10 feet of conveyor, and 60 inch slave-driven extensions are also available. Carrying rollers are 1.3 inches in diameter and rotate on precision ground ABEC1 ball bearings at both ends providing a quiet and maintenance-free operation, says the company.
