Overhead Chain Conveyor
Um Transportador aéreo de correntes é uma cadeia fechada de correntes cardam, que se deslocam dentro de um carril de aço, com as cargas suspensas nos ganchos de suspensão.
A overhead chain conveyor is a closed system with a cardan chain running inside a steel rail. Loads hang directly from the suspension points on the chain. The conveyor is normally suspended from the shop ceiling but can also be mounted on floor-standing pillars.
The cardan chain for the overhead chain conveyors is equipped with guide and load rollers of hardened steel running on ball bearings. The standard version of the chain is lubricated for a working temperature of 250°C.
The guide and load rollers are also available in plastic with moulded-in ball bearings.
The overhead chain conveyor has many applications, for example, surface treatment plants, temporary storing, and for long internal transports.
The conveyor is available also with automatic loading and unloading, for example by industrial robots.
Existem vários modelos de transportadores pelo solo dependendo da carga e método de trabalho, mas todos eles têm duas coisas em comum:
A number of different types of floor conveyors are available depending on the load and operational mode.
They have two things in common, namely, the cardan chain runs in a steel track and the load is positioned above the track.
The floor conveyor is fitted on floor-mounted pillars and the load can be rotated or indexed.
