In a custom quality-control system nicknamed “Gizmo,” developed by Post-Logix, six LP Series conveyors help guide cabinet doors though a bar-code reader. The reader scans each cabinet’s UV bar-code to gather dimensional details, product details and quality conformance. By March 2017, Gizmo had so far scanned 150,000 doors. Already, it has helped the cabinetry company to save millions of dollars in scrap, to speed up QC and to reduce labor time and human error in processing.

This automotive parts manufacturer need a faster, automated way to get these tubes into and out of the washing station, through tight available space, without parts rolling off into machinery. Solution: Join the discharge section of the machining cell to the washing station via a 2-inch wide LP Series Mini-Mover conveyor equipped with two longitudinal cleats, with the cleats spaced to exactly to cradle each part along for the ride. Once washed, each part is conveyed and unloaded to the collection station for inspection.
Automating a bag labeling operation became much simpler by adding this Lite Series Mini-Mover Conveyor to the system.
Bagging Labeler with Lite Series Mini-Mover Conveyor
Every Mini-Mover conveyor is fully tested and “burned-in” for a minimum of fours hours before we pass inspection on it and get it ready to ship to a customer. To ensure uninterrupted testing time, we’ve devised portable stack racks fit into limited spaces to better allocate shop-floor space. The rack shown in the video holds multiple conveyors, adjustable to widths of the units being burned in.
Vibration-free conveyor operation can be a make-or-break deal in successful product labeling and marking applications. Our customer used a group of Mini-Mover LP Series Conveyors equipped with our Compact drive packages to achieve a smooth-running labeling station. The ability for our Mini-Mover units to maintain consistent and smooth running speed made all the difference to this system.
