Electromagnetic conveyors boost metering accuracy
Key Technology introduces Impulse Compact, a new family of small electromagnetic shakers designed specifically for tight-fitting processing and packaging distribution lines. Impulse Compact starts and stops quickly to accurately meter product, making it appropriate for product mixing lines, ingredient feeding and scale feeding.Impulse Compact maximizes production flexibility with dedicated solid-state controls that allow conveying pan amplitudes to range from zero to 100 percent to adjust for different products or processing conditions. The electromagnetic shakers can be adjusted from low stroke, high cycle mode for gentle product handling to high-stroke, low-cycle mode for faster throughput or to handle heavier product.Impulse Compact is available in sizes ranging from 200 to 400 mm (8 to 15.7 inches) wide and from 1500 to 2000 mm (5 to 6.5 feet) long. For higher volume applications, Key also offers larger electromagnetic Impulse shakers up to 610 mm (24 inches) wide and up to 3500 mm (11 feet) long. An assortment of drive sizes, product conveying surfaces, and system configurations allow for a wide variety of applications.
