PDC Introduces Cam-Driven Linear Assembly System



Precision Detroit Company (PDC) introduces the Weiss LS Linear Assembly System. This system uses a barrel-cam drive to position modular pallets. High-speed belt conveyors transport the pallets around the system, and into and between the locking stations. Station-to-station transfer time is as low as 0.4 seconds. Transfer times are as fast as 4.4 feet per second. Pallet speed is controlled by the integrated frequency inverter with PLC control.

The LS Linear Assembly System is modular in design with a 3-position, single locking station and a 7-position, dual locking station. Modules can be constructed with 90° and 180° corners and transport belts of custom lengths.

The pallets are guided by profile rollers on a circular track. Since the pallets overhang the track, support for high Z-forces and underside assembly are options.

Pallets are linked together in pairs to provide smooth transfer between belts, corners, and locking stations. To ensure safe operation and wear resistance, all rolling components are self lubricated.
