Cleated Lite Series conveyors used in the Rollmaster Paint Roller Bagging System help make this system compact and efficient. Developed by All Packaging Machinery (APM) , the Rollmaster bagger is a great illustration of APM’s design ingenuity to solve packaging application challenges. The system includes a conveyorized paint-roller infeed, automatic cycling option, electric eye for printed film and a cleated LP conveyor for product separation and an inclined Lite Series conveyor for easy product discharge.
No, they’re not racing stripes. The longitudinal cleats, or ribs, on these LP series conveyors are specially spaced to hold and align cylindrical parts as they’re moved in staggered pairs along the belt. We suggested to the customer a ribbed-belt configuration on a single conveyor, which allowed them to save floor space — and avoid the cost of using two side-by-side conveyors for the application.
Our customer needed to move very thin polycarb or PET type laminate sheets across their vision cameras, mounted below, while keeping the sheet material completely flat. Our solution was to insert polycarb windows in the bedplate slot we machined into these LP Series conveyors, to ensure no sheet sagging or catching while in motion.
Metal stamping operations gain a great deal of efficiency with ganged Mini-Mover Conveyors integrated into the machine. Built to withstand the tough and often oily, grimy work environment, both Lite and LP Series conveyors can be built to exactly suit the user’s stamping progression, for both parts and scrap removal.
Tabletop feet have become a popular accessory for Mini-Mover Conveyors in bench-top applications. These sturdy, rubber-bottomed feet keep the unit stable on the surface, yet completely portable. The feet alone can bring the conveyor up to about 3″ max from the bench surface in most cases. But if a little more height is needed, the extender tubes allow an extra inch or two to be added, and with the same degree of stability.
