CINCINNATI, OH - A four-color flyer from TKF, Inc. describes all the features and advantages of the revolutionary new PosiGrip Accumulation Conveyor, offering non-contact, zero pressure accumulation that stages from the discharge end.
The PosiGrip is ideal for the computer and electrical component, food and beverage, appliance, automotive and glass industries where non-contact between product is crucial.
The flyer describes TKF's patented PosiGrip roller drive gear teeth that are formed directly into the rollers and power by smooth, quiet synchronous belting an a positive drive. There are no separate sprockets or gears and no welded drive components.
The flyer describes how accumulations zones are driven by motorized rollers, each with a drive card with settings that allow easy speed adjustment. The drive roller stops as product reaches the photo-eye at the discharge point of the zone, virtually ensuring no contact. Zones, which are available up to 75" long and 45" long, can be individually controlled for specific assembly areas and can easily handle a wide array of products with unit loads of up to 400 lbs. in each zone.
Since it requires no lubrication, the PosiGrip Accumulation conveyor is much cleaner than comparable conveyors, so it is ideal for both clean environments and rugged applications. The positive PosiGrip geared belts provide superior drive force versus line shaft and O-ring driven conveyors.
The advantages and mechanics of no impact conveying, as well as the options available on the PosiGrip Accumulation conveyor, also are detailed in the flyer.
TKF specializes in the design and manufacture of engineered conveying systems for the appliance, packaging, automotive, food/drug preparation and other manufacturing and processing industries. Conveyor types include vertical, accumulation, carousel, overhead, and transfer units.
