Motek 2010: Montech Presents a Wide Range of Transport and Handling Solutions

Derendingen - Montech is exhibiting a wide range of transport and handling solutions at Motek 2010, Stand 1170, Hall 1. For example, there will be a special application of the Montrac transport system, the multitrack conveyor and the full range of belt conveyors and automation components.

At Motek, the visitors of Montech's stand 1170 in hall 1 will find a peculiar and special application of the Montrac system: sitting on their bar stools, the guests will be able to order their favorite drink via touch panel, and have it served to their place by Montrac. This application shows the efficiency and suitability of Montrac for the smooth transport of items and the direct control of destination through Chaos Technology.

"Montrac offers smooth, accurate and safe handling of any kind of objects, standing out as an ideal solution for catering, exhibitions, museums, showrooms and libraries," says Gianluca Aloisi, Director Sales, Montech. "Another original application of Montrac can be found in the Swiss Museum of Transport, which adopted Montrac as the core of a handling system for the display of 3000 Matchbox cars."

In the past years, the Montrac system has been used in several intralogistic and industrial applications: e.g. transport of vehicle headlight components from warehouse to machining stations, transport of glass lenses, interlinking of injection molding presses, connection of manual and automatic working stations for car and truck rearview mirrors or automated box handling.

Multitrack conveyor

To carry parts up to 120 kg, Montech will show a multitrack conveyor with belts or toothed belts. The belt is available with three different drives with spur gear motor. According to the selected drive, there are different options for acceleration, brake, transport speed and stop positions. The smooth and delicate handling of parts is guaranteed by accurate acceleration and braking curves.

Belt conveyors for machines

The Montech belt conveyors are based on a modular concept with ready-to-use standard components. Thanks to their modularity, the conveyors can be assembled in variable configurations, extended or shortened with a simple and cost-effective approach. "Thanks to their modularity, the conveyors can be adapted to the specific requirements of each customer and integrated into complex plants or machines," says Aloisi. The Montech belt conveyors are particularly suitable for installations in production machines in different industries and, for instance, find application in automated assembling systems, machine tools, production plants, automatic lathes and packaging equipment.

The conveyors have standard widths included between 45 and 800 mm, while their length can be selected freely up to 15 meter length in one millimeter steps. The conveyors can carry weights up to 125 kg.

Automation components, high flexibility

At Motek, Montech will also showcase the range of modular high-precision components for assembly automation. Great flexibility is guaranteed by the availability of pneumatic and electric components: grippers, rotary drives, compact universal slides, linear units, portal slides, lifting units and Servoline.
