Modular Power Drive System Simplifies Assembly Line Automation


PEABODY, MA -- Quixxsmart Structures, Inc. announces a new modular Power Drive System designed for automated parts delivery along fully adjustable assembly lines used in lean manufacturing environments. The new system operates as a stand alone unit or easily integrates with Quixxsmart workstations, flow racks and part presentation carts.

The system provides operator-determined, variable speed automated workflow control, serving as a cost-effective alternative to traditional gravity-fed, worker-controlled part delivery. Automating parts advancement through the assembly line saves time and frees worker hands to perform other assembly tasks.

The Power Drive System is constructed from heavy gauge 28-mm X 1-mm thick steel tubing and bonded plastic-coated jacket for durability. Tubing is easily joined with a series of steel fittings, creating a stable structure. Powered by a variable speed, 24Vdc fractional HP motor, containers and bins are driven along the center track guided by a circular urethane friction belt and two semi-circular groves of rollers positioned in aluminum roller tracks.

Quixxsmart components easily configure to accommodate assembly applications, and are quickly reconfigured to meet evolving needs.
