Linear Buffer with Pneumatical Cross Slides

Task: Conveying and buffering of metal springs in containers

  • Springs are produced from a moulding press with a rate of 30/min and shall be feeded into containers

  • Dimension of containers: 400x300x215mm (plastic-KLT 4321)

  • Weight of a filled container approx. ca. 10kg

  • A buffer for 22 containers shall be realised at narrow space

Solution: Small conveyor belt with pneumatic distribution switch and buffer conveyors

  • Combination of a small I-Tech conveyor followed by a pneumatical distribution device to divide the flow rate to two parallel containers.

  • The distribution device consists of acoustic sheet metal with a sandwich structure to avoid noise exposure

  • Two parallel mounted Multi-Tech conveyors type GL serve as buffer

  • The containers are pushed to the parallel conveyor pneumatically at the end of the conveying section

  • In order to realise safe transfers the containers are singularised prior to transfer point. For this a couple containers is trapped laterally by pneumatical cylinders

  • By means of photo switches different functions are detected (no empty containers present, container in position to be filled, buffer complete)

  • Controlling and timing realised by Siemens S7

  • Operating modes are displayed by a signal lamp in 3-colours
