Active Roller Belt Conveyor
In many areas of production often products will be collected together onto a wide central conveyor from a number of different input conveyors. However, these products will tend to arrive on the central large conveyor in a random manner.
Generally products need to be centralised or guided to one side of the conveyor so that they can be fed onto a single outfeed conveyor. To achieve this, on this project, we designed the conveyor to incorporate an Activated Roller Belt.
What Does an Activated Roller Belt Do?
On an Activated Roller Belt the products rest on free spinning angled rollers rather than on the belt surface. These rollers extend above and below the belt surface and are positioned at an angle in relation to the direction the belt travels.
The activated rollers move the products across the direction of the roller orientation rather than just along the conveyor. An Activated Roller Belt can change the direction, location, speed and alignment of items without using rails or other complicated mechanical controls.
Have a look at the video below showing one of the Active Roller Belt Conveyors we installed for a client. The products in this example are gathered on the centralised conveyor, passed to one side, down the output conveyor, nicely aligned and read to be stamped prior to being packaged.
