Vertical Conveyor Takes Product Handling to New Levels
(Oshkosh, WI) - Nercon Eng. & Mfg., the industry's leading developer of conveyor systems for distribution and manufacturing operations, introduces a new FLEX LIFT Vertical Conveyor designed to reliably deliver products from one level to another. This conveyor component enables conveyor systems to set up archways for access to the opposite side of the system, yet maintain the pace of the product flow.
"Key to the dependable operation of this conveyor is the redesigned product platform," according to Nercon Senior Engineer Cary Lindauer.
"We designed the product platform using a combination of structural tube and geometric blocks to create multiple locking surfaces. This, in turn, locks the product platform into a level position ensuring maximum product stability during the vertical transfer.
Simple design also ensures the robust FLEX LIFT Vertical Conveyor is easy to fit into the operation, easy to maintain and can be delivered quickly. The geometric blocks provide a rigid product platform in the vertical conveying mode and a collapsible product platform in the return path. This design allows the unit one of the smallest footprints in the industry, making it easy to fit into increasingly tight floor layouts.
Nercon engineers have eliminated most of the components requiring maintenance, such as bearings and sprockets, typically found in this equipment. Heavy-duty UHMW idlers wheels replace all of the idler chain sprockets, increasing the service life of the lifting chains. The open construction of the FLEX LIFT Vertical Conveyor allows for ease of maintenance through quick and simple access to all components.
Simple, modular design of the FLEX LIFT Vertical Conveyor enables fast delivery, with the ability to be customized to meet a range of unique needs.
