CINCINNATI, OH - TKF offers a roller curve conveyor that utilizes its patented PosiGrip technology. It features non-contact, zero pressure accumulation that stages from the discharge end around virtually any degree of curve. When used with TKF's PosiGrip accumulation conveyor, the curve allows for uninterrupted accumulation with no external sensors or logic required.
The patented PosiGrip roller drive gear teeth are formed directly into the rollers and powered by smooth, quiet synchronous belting in a positive drive. This means there is no metal-to-metal contact, resulting in very quiet operation. The system requires no lubrication, and there are no separate sprockets, gears, or welded drive components making it clean and easy to maintain.
Accumulation zones are driven by motorized rollers, each with a drive card with settings to allow easy adjustment of speed. The drive roller stops as product reaches the photo-eye at the discharge point of the zone, virtually ensuring no contact. Zones can be individually controlled for specific assembly areas and are available in various widths.
The system is ideal for clean or rugged applications, including computer and electric components, food and beverage, appliances, automotive, and glass industries when non-contact between products is crucial.
