Elektrobit introduces Dual Rail Conveyor
May 24, 2006
Elektrobit has announced the Dual Rail Conveyor J204-53.
The Dual Rail Conveyor is part of the Dual Rail Line concept that optimizes manufacturing process equipment utilization, especially pick-and-place machines and high-volume, low- or medium-mix production. Production planning flexibility increases when the same process equipment can be used for both sides in double-sided SMD assembly or when two different products can be produced in single-sided production.
The Conveyor transports and buffers PCBs between process machines, offers multiple-drive technology, eliminates contact between boards during transfer, and features a safe, clean design with no visible motors or wiring. Additionally, the sturdy structure of the system offers reliable operation in demanding production conditions, as well as easy mechanical connection to other equipment.
Standard features include steel frame construction, up to four individually driven conveyor segments on both conveyor rails, automatic indexing and inspection modes, lead-free process compatible, PLC controller, start/stop/reset/emergency stop/inspection/send switches in membrane terminal, four standard frame lengths: 500, 1000, 1500, 2000 mm, SMEMA electrical interface, ESD-safe design, and CE-safety compliant.
The Dual Rail Conveyor provides users with numerous benefits, including optimized process equipment utilization, increased production planning flexibility and additional factory floor space.
