Flat belts: Dura-Belt, a fabricator of
polyurethane belting for conveyor belts,
says its stretchy elastic flat belts now come
with a new matte surface that shuns dust,
giving them a higher coefficient of friction
(COF) even in dusty environments, while
allowing the belts to move boxes and paper
bubble envelopes on inclines and declines of
up to 16 degrees, 33 percent greater than
the company’s older version. These elastic
belts move heavy boxes and require no belt
tensioners or V-guides. (Dura-Belt, www.
Zone-powered conveyor: Avancon
has introduced its ZPC (Zone Powered
Conveyor)-System, which works in zones
with full zero-pressure functionality.
Designed for use in warehouses and distribution centers, it transports cartons, boxes,
trays, totes, bags, solar cells or panels, and
Avancon’s omnidirectional transfer units
provide a smooth and fast transfer where
the box has to be diverted or transferred
to another conveyor line or around a corner. The modular ZPC-System can be easily
extended. The system also includes built-in
safety features. The drive system and control
system are protected inside the conveyor
frame, eliminating the need for finger protection for each driven conveyor-roller. Nothing
sticks out of the conveyor, not even a screwhead. Operators can work freely around the
conveyor lines, which are designed to be
smooth and streamlined with their aluminum
The system also includes a looping feature. When a specific picking zone is full,
the next box goes automatically around the
loop and will try to enter the same zone later
when free space is available.
The ZPC-System features a “plug-in” concept for fast installation, meaning the installation is automatically established simultaneously with the electrical connection, which
includes the data exchange. All modules
are pre-assembled, pre-programmed, and
tested before shipping from the factory in
Switzerland. (Avancon, www.avancon.com)
