TKF Accumulation Conveyor

May 28, 2009
TKF Inc. says its PosiGrip accumulation conveyor has drive gears formed directly into the rollers, which are powered by quiet synchronous belting in a positive drive.

The lack of metal-to-metal contact reduces the need for lubrication. Electrical components can be self-contained within the side frame, eliminating the need for wiring to PLCs, the company adds.

The non-contact, zero pressure accumulation conveyor handles 400-pound unit loads in each accumulation zone. Each motorized roller has a drive card that allows a user to make speed adjustments. The drive roller stops as product reaches the photo-eye at the discharge point of the zone. Zones can be individually controlled for specific assembly areas and are available up to 75 inches long and 48 inches wide.
