The zoned accumulation conveyor from TKF (Cincinnati, OH), with roll-to-roll chain-driven live rollers (CDLR), is designed to handle medium- to heavy-duty loads. The zone lengths can be designed to coincide with the product lengths, and the entire length can be driven by a single power unit. While roller sensors are available, the all-electric-sensing eliminates the wear-and-tear of a sensor roller. Other features include:
- Less power consumption and a configuration that produces a clean, low-maintenance system.
- A design where each clutch assembly is mounted on the side frame of the conveyor, instead of underneath, which creates a low profile.
- An accessible location for moving parts, which makes maintenance very easy.
