Snap-on components provide flexibility for conveyor system

NP_Dynacon_waterbath_ac.gifSnap-in-place attachments and accessories for modular conveyor systems can provide an improvement in uptime, efficiency, and overhead costs. The systems have the ability to quickly and easily expand, shrink, or accommodate sophisticated modules with automated functions. Constructed of high-impact plastic, the standard-size modules measure 18 inches long. The interlocking sectional units include belts, sides, legs, motors, and accessories, with self-tracking belts available in 10 styles from 4 to 60 inches wide. Other optional features include drive flights 1, 2, or 3 inches high, flanges to extend side retaining walls, adjustable leg sets to control conveyor height, and leg sets with casters to wheel the conveyors to other locations. Accessories for the system include drop-zone reinforcement modules, feed shields that prevent parts from deflecting off the conveyor, metal detection equipment, electronic eyes, and electrical controls for indexing, reversing, piece counting, and cutting conveyor power. In order to cool parts, a cooling tunnel module uses a rigid Lexan polycarbonate cover to create a tunnel in which cold air is piped through a hose connected to an in-house forced-air cooling system.
