Longitudinal transfer system
Modular Transfer System
The longitudinal transfer system from Montech AG, Derendingen, Switzerland is of modular design and thus permits step-by-step implementation or subsequent adaptation of industrial automation processes. It is used in particular in logistics and assembly automation. The conveyor system transports workpieces fastened to customized or standardized workpiece carriers of high-strength PET on single-belt conveyors from one workstation to the next according to the assembly process. If necessary, a buffer system can also be installed.
The workpiece carriers which are available in four different sizes can transport up to 5 kg. The curves of the transfer system are bufferable, i.e. even if the workpiece carriers arrive at the curves in close succession, there is no jamming. Machining from below is equally as possible as the choice of the motor position. A positioning device of the longitudinal transfer system guarantees a high positioning accuracy of ± 0.05 mm during assembly and machining processes such as pressing and screwing operations, and a high force application on the workpiece of up to 14 N/mm2. When the workpiece carrier is positioned on the belt, there is no friction with the belt.
