SailRail Linear Conveyors automatically linefeed and index racks in a wide variety of applications including: assembly, production, stamping, dock storage and walking floor applications.
A transportation bed is capable of indexing groups of containers simultaneously with total or zone accumulation under zero pressure with complete footprint support. Linear conveyors can interface with fork trucks, automated wire guided vehicles, robotic pick or place, jogs, tilts, lifts and turntables.
Features and benefits:
Maintains assembly line up time - reduces requirement for demand service by providing a container buffer accumulation at point of Linefeed
Assembly operator efficiency is increased by reducing waiting time and by having loads travel to operator instead of operator traveling to loads
Accurate and reliable load positioning facilitates interfacing with robotics and dedicated automation
Conserves valuable plant space and reduces congestion
Zero pressure full accumulation - maintains a 6” space between all unit loads being conveyed
Modular design incorporates the very best of functional reliability, performance and flexibility
Fully automatic operation by PLC - with manual override controls and Dual Direction Capability
Increases robotic and automated assembly tooling throughput up to 20%
Employee Safety increased by eliminating forklift movement and container handling adjacent to the assembly line
Reduces fork lift travel - empty racks can automatically accumulate back to aisle
Ensures no relative motion occurs between transfer bed and the unit loads, thus eliminating load jams, product damage and equipment damage
