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.
Our LP Series conveyors keep riding along with the “Building Buddies” traveling exhibition for children’s education. For the summer of 2016, “Building Buddies” is on its way to Mongolia… and beyond!
This colorful role-playing experience teaches construction basics to preschoolers, using kid-safe plastic “plumbing,” wall painting (with lights) and brick wall construction with conveyors used to transport the foam blocks. It was was first displayed in Canada in 2011, and in the U.S. in 2013 at locations in the Oklahoma Museum network. The “Building Buddies” roadshow was created by and is maintained by Toboggan Design of Montreal, Canada.

By ganging several narrow LP Series conveyors to a single gearmotor, a single piece of material placed across them can move forward, in identical speed and in perfect alignment. This is important in applications such as metal stamping, where conveyors can be integrated into the machine to move material though the stamping dies located inside (with conveyors spaced to avoid any internal elements of the machine). Ganged conveyors are especially useful for progressive stamping, where the different parts of the material run beneath a progression of different punch-press dies during a single run.
