Heavy Duty Accumulation Conveyor

February 1, 2011

TKF’s zoned accumulation conveyor with roll-to-roll chain driven live rollers (CDLR), is designed to handle medium- to heavy-duty loads. The zone lengths can be designed to coincide with the product lengths. The entire conveyor length is then driven by a single power unit. Each accumulation zone is driven by air-operated clutches that are controlled by photo-eyes and solenoids located in each zone. While sensor rollers are available, the all electric sensing eliminates the wear and tear of a sensor roller. The single drive configuration requires less power than multi-drive systems and produces a clean, low maintenance system.

TKF’s accumulation conveyor is also designed with each clutch assembly mounted on the side frame of the conveyor, instead of underneath. This creates a very low profile that positions the top of each roller as low as six inches off the floor, making it ideal for heavy loads and pallet conveying. It also provides a very accessible location for moving parts, which makes maintenance very easy.
