Lineshaft Roller Conveyors
Product News Monday, July 16, 2007: Automation Supplies Ltd
Lineshaft roller conveyors are modular and cost effective
Automation Supplies Ltd is a new company offering a range of exciting new engineered products from one source, based on the popular and increasing use of established modular parts and assemblies to achieve cost effective solutions.
Another popular conveying solution available from Automation Supplies is the comprehensive range of lineshaft roller conveyors. Lineshaft roller conveyors use traditional roller conveyor design with normally steel rollers in steel or aluminium profile frames, but the power to the rollers is supplied via a longitudinal shaft which rotated beneath the load bearing rollers providing traction to each individual roller. This use of plastic spools on this shaft together with the elasticated bands that take the power to the rollers allows for the rollers to slip if required, thereby offering a queue of products to form without excessive pressure on each other.
The standard roller conveyor incorporates 50 mm diameter rollers giving 8Kg of drive per spool. The straight track is supplied in maximum 3.0 metre lengths as standard. All the conveyors have a modular design and therefore can be altered or added to easily.
Standard widths are available from 362mm to 1012mm. Frames are free of bolt heads and unnecessary holes due to all jig welded construction. Standard frame finish is powder coated steel but aluminium options are available. Standard steel rollers are zinc plated. Stainless steel options are available.
