Fits in tight spaces

The 125Z Series line of conveyors provides tight product transfer and the ability to fit within space-constrained areas. Fixed angles ranging from 30 to 90 degrees minimize the number of required components while providing the highest load carrying capacity in the industry, the vendor claims. When coupled with their low profile (1.89 in.), these features make the conveyors ideal for use whenever products need to be raised or lowered. Five standard configurations are available to meet any need.

Motion control screws

Accuracy, reliability and load rating make the VHD Series of non-ball lead screws a popular replacement for ball screws. They are ideal for eliminating drag and wear associated with high pre-load forces, and the anti-backlash assembly is designed for smooth, quiet operation and long life. The screw is self-lubricating (doesn’t require grease to operate) and therefore reduces noise and dust in the workplace. Assemblies are available cut-to-length or with screws machined to your requirements.

Affordable lift

Valu-Lift Continuous Vertical Conveyors incorporate economical modular construction and a unique new platform for efficient high-speed operation, low maintenance, and simplified assembly. Perfect for cartons and other smooth-bottom unit loads, the lift is smaller, easier to install, more quickly available and more affordable than other vertical lifts in the industry. Standard features assure low maintenance and quieter operation.

Test your system first

A continuous container handling system, the Conveyor Test Loop is now available to give prospective customers the opportunity to identify the behavior of their specific containers on a wide variety of conveyor types prior to system design and installation. It handles a variety of container types, full and empty, with speeds from 100 to more than 1,000 containers per minute. This allows thorough testing of a customized container handling system prior to installation.
