Air conveyor with twin guides. Amongst this machine's many possibilities, it's well worth mentioning the JET system, the first and only vertical air conveyor able to raise (or lower) bottles on slopes from 0 to 90º.
This system's features allow it to efficiently handle bottles that other systems cannot transport:
A twin-guide profile encapsulates the bottle above and below the neck ring, thus avoiding leaving marks on the bottle's neck and providing better stability to the bottle, even at very high production line speeds.
The single bi-directional opening directs a current of air around the neck and the main part the bottle with precision. This reduces the levels of contamination and jams, increases the speed of the bottles move and keeps them in the vertical position, even at high speeds.
Efficient with short-necked bottles. With our systems, the current of air is directed with precision, so it can be directed towards specific parts of the bottles, even on short-necked bottles.
The current of air creates an air cushion between the guides and the ring on the bottle neck, which notably reduces friction, which in turn lowers the air pressure needed during the operation and a reduction in energy consumption for operating the fan.
In-line systems for buffering glass containers are used for handling buffered bottles that are distributed over the width exceeding the multiple sizes of the transportation medium. Contemporary packaging machines are adapted for packaging containers distributed over the width equal to the width of the carton or wrapper (for instance board machine type WRAP AROUND, bottle loader). The most important issue, for buffering of glass bottles, is the synchronization of the speed of the belt of the buffering conveyor with the speed of packaging machine and the speed of filling line. The buffered containers should form a wedge with a base directed towards the packaging machine. Such an arrangement is equipped with adequate number of buffer sensors and drives. The volume of the buffer, for the purposes of free flow of bottles and the possibility of additional refill in case of an emergency, is many times greater than the volume of bottles, which are on the buffer during normal operation.
Telescopic conveyor consists of a frame, primary drum, secondary drum, telescopic mechanism, assent angle changing mechanism, conveyor belt, drives (for conveyor, telescopic mechanism, assent angle changing mechanism). Conveyor frame is made of steel profile, frame covering - enamel.
Constructive design of conveyor - mobile, conveyor mounted on the turning wheels.
Primary drum is mounted on the frame. At the drum supports are installed bearing units. At the bearing units are installed closed bearings. Lubricates, embedded in the bearing, ensure the reliable for the entire duration of the bearing. Primary drum is moving by the drive which is a motor-reducer of STM (Italy). Motor-reducer is installed directly on the shaft of the primary roller and is fixed through the earring.
Slave drum is attached to frame on the bearings supports, which are able to tension and adjust of the conveyor belt. At the bearings unit of slave drum is also set a closed bearings. Lubricators embedded in the bearing, ensure the reliable for the entire duration of the bearing. Conveyor belt running adjustment is carrying by the screw tensioning device of primary, slave, roller units and front buckle.
Vertical conveyors are designed for vertical lifting of glass bottles / crates / cans at a given height.
The rise of containers (products) from the lower point to the upper point (from 0.5 meters to level of second floors)
The descent of containers (products) from the upper point to the lower point (from the second floor to the conveyor level on the first floor)
Raising and lowering packaging, boxes from the first floor to second etc.
Vertical conveyors are equipped with adjustable side guides, thanks to which they can be used for all types of bottles and cans.
Upward conveyor operating: feeding conveyer feed blocks of products to the platform (this area is in the upper position). At the platform boxes moves to the lowest position. Then the platform "folding", and the products move to roller conveyor.
At the upper position the platform placed at the horizontal position. At this position it ready to receive the next box.
At the chain stretch unit of vertical conveyor are set closed bearings. Lubricants are embedded in the bearing, provides a operation of bearing during the operation period.
The transporter is suitable for vertical (downward) transportation of empty or filled bottles (cans) with diameter of 20 -100 mm. Special design of gripper for transporting circuit provides a reliable grip of during its moving.
Transporter consists of a frame and attached to her two transporting tracks, roller chain with scallop grippers SYSTEM PLAST. Conveyor tracks are placed on special supports. Each of them works with its own drive.
Conveyor is equipped with mechanism for changing the distance between two conveyor tracks. Thus the size of transported products can vary.
Manage of transporter is carried by console, which set the button "Start" and "Stop".
Conveyor is equipped with photo-sensor (optional), when triggered by the drive of the conveyor is turned off.
Trolley vertical conveyor is a welded construction, on which are mounted two chain tracks with lifting platforms. To the frame of the vertical conveyor are also mounted feed and rolling conveyors. Conveyor has the ability to reinstall the roller and feeding conveyor, thus there is a change of embodiment of the conveyor from upward to downward and conversely.
