Conveying system for aluminium foil packets with pneumatic tilting equipment

MTF Technik - Conveying system for aluminium foil packets with pneumatic tilting equipment

Task

  • Sliced aluminium foil packets with a weight of max 200kg shall be transported out of a slicing machine and being tilted to a pallet rack.

  • Foil packets with max. 1,850mm length and max. 300mm diameter

  • Cycle time approx. 1.5 minutes

  • Protection system on site.

  • Control unit, motor protection realized on site

Solution

  • An inclined GL-conveyor with an adhesive belt feeds the foil packets upwards and transfers them on to 2 parallel horizontal GL conveyors which can be tilted pneumatically.

  • At the end of these conveyors a restriction bar including sensors is mounted to detect whether the packets arrived at the end.

  • In that case the GL conveyors swivel into a vertical position and the packet falls into the applied pallet rack.
