...For 45° product rotation
Winneconne, WI - Multi-Conveyor (www.multi-conveyor.com) - Multi-Conveyor recently built this Multi-Conveyor recently built this dual strand, roller chain conveyor with bucket-style attachments to transport loaves of bread - ultimately ending up at a robotic pick zone.
Alternating back-to-back buckets are horizontal and rotated 45-degrees. The back-to-back design was specified based on how the loaves were being both loaded and unloaded.
Dual strand stainless steel roller chain designs may have pre-tensioned linkage with attachments needed for the customized buckets. This design required every-other-bucket 45 degree rotation.
Another unique customer request were square cutouts in lower end of the buckets for customer-supplied photo eyes to detect product inside the buckets. Sanitary requirements were stainless steel, continuous and cleaned welded design.
Heavy duty brackets were added to mount inside the customer's bread making machine providing additional stability and alleviating any flex in the conveyor itself. In general, the customer requested a "beefy design" for longevity, bucket placement and timing, simplistic bucket cleaning by removal and replacement of buckets, and overall maintenance purposes.
