Original Press Release:
New Single Strand Conveyor Improves Profits, Productivity
Company will display VarioFlow(TM) at the IMTS 2002 Manufacturing Conference, September 4-11, 2002 at McCormick Place in Chicago, Booth #4222
The new conveyor, named VarioFlow(TM), is a significant enhancement to the existing family of conveyors from Bosch Rexroth because it lets manufacturers link assembly operations with functions such as parts feeding and packaging on either side of the assembly process.
The initial offering from Bosch Rexroth consists of two profile widths, 65 mm and 90 mm, with chains of 62 mm and 87 mm respectively. VarioFlow offers faster transport speeds (up to 50 m/min) and stronger chain than other single strand chain conveyors (tensile force of up to 1250 N). It's also more economical than many other chain conveyor systems, and brings new flexibility to the automotive, electronics, packaging and personal care industries.
