Westfalia Technologies Introduces New Conveyor Products
YORK, Pa., June 11, 2007 - Westfalia Technologies, Inc. (www.WestfaliaUSA.com), a leader in materials handling and warehouse automation, announces two new additions to its portfolio of conveyor products with the Pallet Jack Interface Conveyor and the Mechanical Right Angle Transfer Conveyor for USPS pallets.
The Pallet Jack Interface Conveyor is available in configurations with (Model 973) of without (Model 974) squaring arms to align pallets to the centerline of the conveyor. Both feature 3000 lb. maximum load capacity, standard speeds of 40 to 80 feet/minute, and handle a standard 40 x 48 inch GMA or Chep 9-block pallet. Users can drive a pallet jack onto the ramp or plates, set the pallet on the plates, and pull the pallet jack back out. Chains then raise the pallet off the plates and run it onto the next conveyor, eliminating the possibility of conveyor damage. A ledge of pit with 26 to 30 inches clearance below ground level is required to accommodate the interface.
Westfalia's Mechanical Right Angle Transfer Conveyor (Model 991D) is capable of handling USPS pallets without a slave pallet. The 4-way pallet transfer operation uses a combination of chains and close roller centers, allowing forward, left, right or backward movement, as needed. Constructed of heavy duty structural and formed steel, this conveyor has a 3,500 lb. maximum load capacity, a standard speed of 40 to 60 feet/ minute, and uses Standard Industrial-type components for easy replacement.
