Part/Runner Conveyor Is Easy To Adjust
IMS' CV00 line of part/runner conveyors is said to be as easy to adjust as an office chair. The 6-ft horizontal conveyor uses gas springs to allow fingertip height and tilt adjustment, so one person can adjust them. Gas springs are cylinders filled with compressed gas and they allow users to start and stop the vertical adjustment of the conveyor at any point in the adjustment range.
And instead of pins and screw knobs, the new units have lever locks, which can be loosened to adjust, tighten and lock the legs into position. All four legs have swivel casters with toe locks to keep the unit in place.
CV00 conveyors have extruded aluminum side rails, with T-slots for easy horizontal leg adjustment. The T-slots can also be used to mount such accessories as can holders and static eliminating equipment.
Four styles are available: 3-ft horizontal, 6-ft horizontal, 6-ft inclines (45 deg max) and 9-ft horizontal to inclined (45 deg max). Each style is available in 12-, 18- and 24-in. widths.
Units also feature side-rail part deflectors, FDA-approved monofilament carcass belting and 1-1/2-in. vulcanized cleats. Metal and plastic belts are also available.
Optional are variable speed control, an indexing unit and a photoelectric part detector. Prices range from $1816 to $2895.
