An integrator producing automation solutions and manufacturing systems for the pharmaceutical, consumer goods, automotive, and general mechanical engineering industries faced the following difficulties for an end customer in the packaging industry: In its production, two belt conveyors intersect due to the locations of the machines and there is therefore a risk of collision. The workpiece carriers come from the production machine to an inspection and removal station and must then be returned to the production machine. A lift or additional modules to avoid the crossing of the conveyor belts were not a solution because they would be too expensive.
We found the solution in a customer-specific longitudinal transfer system created with TB belt conveyors
. We have equipped these with belt bends. This gives the customer a second level, via which the workpiece carriers can be transported back to the beginning via the main line without the need for additional lift units or other expensive additional modules.
