Conveyance Systems

Fori Automation can design and manufacture the conveyor system including all material handling (over head rails  lift assists), material transfer (conveyors and AGV’s), tooling (fixturing, presses, pallets and gauging), data collection (error proofing), line side presentation material, controls (PC or PLC), Quality control (vision) and ability to process (efficiency rates, capacity, cycle time data, tooling concepts and throughput studies).

The over / under conveyor layout allows for multiple pallets to be utilized while taking up less plant floor space. The empty pallets return to the elevator which lifts it into position to begin the assembly sequence. Once complete a lowerator lowers the empty pallet and it travels on the bottom return conveyor back to the elevator. The system can be configured to raise and return well above the assembly conveyor.

The walk on conveyor is only a few inches above the floor. This allows access to the interior of the conveyor loop..

The chain sits in an aluminum housing that holds the guide rails. The small rollers on the conveyor rest on these rails, while the large rollers contact the pallet. The pallet travels at a combined speed of the linear speed of the chain and the rotational movement of the larger rollers. This results in a 2.6 to 1 pallet to chain speed ratio. The maximum capacity of the twin strand conveyor is 470 lbs per foot / 700 kg per meter.
