Conveying eqipment for fast supply of an assembly line

Conveying system
for fast supply of an assembly line
Project describtion

The conveyor system built by KRAUS is used for the fast and simple supply of an assembly line.
The main focus was on the ergonomic and safe provision of parts using metal boxes.
The swivel mechanism for the first box has been designed in such a way that the full box swivels gently downwards and only reaches the initial position again when

Roller conveyor with lifter

Roller conveyor
with lifter
Project describtion

Pick-up of buffered empty cardboard boxes of different sizes by a lifter.

The boxes on the lifter are filled with injection-moulded parts of different sizes and deposited on the upper conveyor section after a customised filling duration (can take between hours and days).

Advantages

Lower weight of the roller conveyor
Optimum utilisation of space at the lifter

 

 

Power-driven transfer element

Power-driven transfer element
between two conveyor belts
Project description

Serves as a power-driven transfer element between two conveyor belts for small bags with food. The restricted space conditions make a compact drive necessary. In the case of the motor-driven roller it is directly integrated in the conveying element, the idler roller.

Advantages

No constraining contour
Simple set-up
Stainless steel version

 

Discharge belt for nOK parts

Discharge belt

Adaptation of our conveying elements to on-site conditions

Adaptation of our conveying elements
to on-site conditions
Properties

One example of the flexible adaptation of our conveying elements to on-site conditions at our customers is the mini tapered idler roller curve shown with 2x 90° and gradient, in the form of a helix, as well as straight sections between the curves and as a transfer section to the downstream conveyor belt.

Requirement

The packages from the foiling machine have to be transported between an existing staircase outside the hall into the neighbouring hall and overcome a height difference of 1,000 mm.

The equipment was put into operation exactly on schedule thanks to the exact coordination between all those involved in the projects.

Flat pallet supply roller conveyor in tandem design

Flat pallet supply roller conveyor
in tandem design
Project description

A flat pallet supply roller conveyor in tandem design for extra-long manual pallet trucks with 2 Euro pallets was realised for an equipment manufacturer.
The specification was to supply Euro pallets to a roller conveyor by pallet truck. The design height was reduced to 80 mm. The customer integrated the drive in the lift table pit to prevent it projecting above the roller conveyor.

Roller conveyor in restricted space with large range of parts

Roller conveyor in restricted space
with large range of parts
Project description

The restricted space situation and the large range of parts were the reason we realised a multi-track, double-decker roller conveyor with accumulation mode and extremely tight roller pitch (from 31 mm). It is based on the KRAUS RBA50 roller conveyor which has been specially adapted. A suitable sub-structure and the required control functions were part of the scope of supply. Our customer has been using it successfully for years for the production of larger gearboxes for tractors and trucks.
