Press Release Summary:
Models 450 and 850 operate on air pressure causing material to advance on slow-acceleration forward stroke, but remain stationary during rapid return stroke. Travel speed or product flow is adjustable with air-pressure control setting. Options include motion sensors for automatic shutoff, cover guards for harsh environments, quick-release clamps for tray removal, and adjustable bearing supports for trays.

Innovative Line Of Air-Operated Transporters Replaces Conveyors... And Reduces Downtime!
PORT ROYAL PA, February 1, 2002 - Vibro Industries manufactures a full line of Air-Operated Transporters that provide an innovative, time-saving solution to problems commonly associated with conventional conveying systems, such as routine and emergency shutdowns for cleanup and maintenance. Although originally designed to eliminate scrap-removal downtime in conveyor-driven collection systems for punch press, lathe and other machine-tool operations, Vibro Air-Operated Transporters have been creatively applied to a wide range of conveying operations in manufacturing and packaging.
The concept driving the Vibro Air-Operated Transporter is a pneumatic cylinder that operates on air pressure to move the product-tray back and forth, causing the material to steadily advance. The material advances on the slow-acceleration forward stroke, but remains stationary during the rapid return stroke - ensuring a constant progression. This provides a safe, reliable and effective means of product handling. Vibro Air-Operated Transporters are currently available in four models sized to meet a wide range of applications, and are easily adaptable to existing production lines. A compact design enables the Vibro Air-Transporter to be installed in cramped, congested areas, even where conventional conveyors will not fit.
Travel speed, or product flow, is adjustable with a simple air-pressure control setting. The Models 450 and 850 are also capable of handling multi-tray installations, thereby doing the work of several conventional conveyors. Options include: motion sensors for automatic shutoff; cover guards for harsh environments, quick-release clamps for fast tray removal; and adjustable bearing supports for trays.
Vibro Industries, a privately owned company headquartered in Port Royal, PA, manufactures a premium line of Air-Operated Transporters - the only transporter line that is 100% air operated and 100% American made. Leroy Johnson, president, introduced the first Vibro Air-Operated Transporter in 1985, following 12 years of extensive experimentation and rigorous testing. Since that time, Vibro Air-Operated Transporters have been successfully applied to a long list of manufacturing applications around the world.
