The Product Elevator offers the flexibility of variable infeed and outfeed heights. The shuttle conveyor may be any Quickdraw® conveyor length up to 30 inches. The elevator includes a metering stop and product sensor controlled by a PLC in the control enclosure. The shuttle conveyor is raised and lowered by a pneumatic rodless cylinder. Travel length and infeed / outfeed height are specified by the customer.
The pneumatic rodless cylinder is enclosed with a finished aluminum cover that includes an access area for vacuum fittings for cleanroom applications. The rear vertical frame has T-slots that run from the base to the top for optional mounting of support brackets or other hardware. This elevator is an ideal component for conveyor line walk-through bridges. Optional Lexan enclosure panels are available.
The Enclosed Lift Elevator is designed for over/under assembly lines. It consists of a metering device at the infeed position, a powered infeed conveyor, a powered lift (carrier size) conveyor, and a vertical actuator that raises or lowers the lift to the outfeed conveyor. The operation of the elevator is controlled by PLC. The manual operation mode allows the operator to step through each sequence of operation. Standard vertical lift capacity is 25 pounds. Cycle time is as low as 6 seconds.
