The Link Connecting Automation Equipment — Classification and Characteristics of Conveyor Line

In a modern factory, an automated production line is composed of multiple automated machinery and equipment, and it is a conveyor line that connects these equipment and completes the material transportation task. We have long been accustomed to their existence, but if you think about it carefully, we may not know anything about them. Today LWT will introduce the conveyor line.

The conveying line is like the blood in the human body. It bears the function of conveying in production and plays the role of undertaking the link. It is an indispensable part of enterprise production. According to the different conveyor chains (plates), it can be roughly divided into the following categories:

1. Belt Conveyor Line

The belt is made of rubber, silica gel, PVC, PU and other materials. In addition to the transportation of ordinary materials, it can also meet the transportation of materials with special requirements such as oil resistance, corrosion resistance, and anti-static. If a special food-grade conveyor belt is used, it can also be used in food, pharmaceutical, daily chemical and other industries.

LWT’s canned yellow peach production line, canned meat production line, canned mushroom production line and other food cans use this conveyor line.

2. Roller Conveyor Line

The roller conveyor line can be divided into two types of conveying modes: unpowered and powered. Most of them are used for the transportation of goods with a flat bottom. They are mainly composed of driving rollers, racks, brackets, and driving parts.

The roller conveyor line has the advantages of simple structure, high reliability, convenient use and maintenance, and can withstand large impact loads. It has the characteristics of large conveying capacity, fast speed and light operation, and can realize multi-variety co-line shunt conveying.

This kind of conveying line is commonly used in the carton palletizer and basket washing machine of LWT to transport cartons and baskets before and after.

3. Chain Plate Conveyor Line

The chain conveyor line includes stainless steel and plastic chain plates. The speed of the conveyor belt can be adjusted freely, which can carry large and heavy items. This is the most commonly used conveyor line when designing production lines in LWT. It can be designed into single row, multiple rows, S-shaped, U-shaped, turning, lifting and climbing, etc., with flexible and convenient shape and high practicability.

When LWT designs for customers to transfer glass bottles, tinplate cans and other containers to various machines, most of them choose this type of conveyor line.

4. Modular Network Transmission Line

The modular mesh conveyor line, as the name suggests, is composed of modular meshes. It is not easy to deviate or slip during operation. The mesh surface is thick and can withstand cutting and collision. It also has the characteristics of oil and water resistance, and strong stability and chemical resistance. , Will not be damaged by detergent or hot water.

LWT Our company mainly uses this conveyor line to transfer glass bottles, tinplate cans and other containers to various machines.
