A customer in the automobile industry was searching for a compact circuit with test units that contact and test the workpieces from below. This customer wanted a special arrangement of single
and double belts
. The problem with the customer request: Due to the quantity of milling in the workpiece carrier and the double-belt belt conveyors, there is not enough support and/or friction between the belt and workpiece carrier to allow it to be transported around a curve. In addition, the workpiece carrier tilts and gets stuck between the belts on the sheet metal.
An arrangement with single belts on double ones is normally not permitted. Thanks to our special design, we were able to make the customer's wish come true. We mounted ball casters in the 90-degree curve to bridge the gap between the belts and support the workpiece carrier. This also minimizes friction, and the workpiece carrier glides smoothly through the curves. The height-adjustable ball casters in the chassis prevent the workpiece carrier from tipping over and colliding with the belt of the subsequent belt conveyor.
