Motek 2011: Custom Transport and Handling Solutions with a Modular Concept

Derendingen - At Motek 2011, Montech will show how to create custom transport system using just few components. At the Swiss company's booth (Hall 1/1535), visitors will find the full range of belt conveyors and automation components, as well as the profile system Quick-Set.

The Montech belt conveyors are based on a modular concept with ready-to-use 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 incorporated into complex plants or machinery," says Gianluca Aloisi, Director Sales.

The Montech belt conveyors are particularly suitable for installations on production machinery in different industries and, for instance, find application in automated assembling systems, machine tools, production plants, automatic lathes and packaging equipment.

Vacuum conveyor: unproductive return track eliminated

The Vacuum conveyor allows to convey lightweight and flat packages at high speed. Compared to conventional belts, this conveyor offers a more dynamic acceleration and braking curve, combined with higher transport speed up to 5 meters per second.

Aloisi: "Conventional handling solutions require an unproductive return track. Montech's Vacuum conveyor has no return and therefore helps increase productivity in the factory." Compared to other systems, this solution offers higher cost efficiency and is characterized by a modular construction.

Multitrack conveyor

To carry parts up to 120 kg, Montech will show a multitrack conveyor with belts or toothed belts at Motek 2011. The conveyor is available with three different drives with spur gear motor. According to the selected drive, there are different options for acceleration, delay, belt speed and positioning. The smooth and delicate handling of parts is guaranteed by accurate acceleration and braking curves.

ISO 5 Class conveyor for cleanrooms

The cleanroom conveyor with ISO 5 certification from the Fraunhofer Institute opens up new applications in unattended rooms. The conveyor can run at five different speeds and, optionally, it is available in single- and dual-belt versions. The cleanroom conveyor is available with drives installed at the end or in the middle, and frame widths between 45 and 250 mm; they can carry loads up to 40 kg.

Flexible automation components

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.
