Yes, there really is a Mini-Mover LP Series conveyor in here somewhere. This complete labeling system runs about 2-3 million parts per year. For each product, it tamps the package’s label, turns the part, and then uses a wipe-on clear label applicator for the lid. Then the part is moved into an automatic L-Bar sealer and shrink tunnel, to produce the finished item.
Big time and materials savings for this high-volume machining facility, with CNC cells equipped Mini-Mover Rotary Table Accumulator (RTA) units. As each of the sensitive parts is finished and reaches the lathe’s parts exit chute, the part can move separately onto the RTA unit for collection, without any finished parts rubbing into or dinging each other. The operator is free to attend to other tasks until time to unload the accumulated products.
Our customer uses two inclined Lite Series conveyors in some of their lab experiments related to their government and private-sector projects. This customer’s research is focused on catalyst- and sorbent-based materials that can act to remove or separate toxic compounds into inert states; they also develop new materials (polymers, carbons and ceramics) for energy, aerospace, industrial and defense applications.
Here’s an offline coding system for a small veterinary supplier, using an Anser U2 Thermal Ink-Jet (TIJ) printer with an LP Series Mini-Mover conveyor. Our integrator customer, Automation-Plus of Wichita, Kan., reports that everything went together smoothly and his end-user is very happy.
This high-volume precision machining customer employs a gentle method to transfer their turned automotive parts for inspection and packaging. Using a custom hopper, collected parts are released onto an inclined, cleated Lite Series conveyor for transport to the next station.
