Ocon conveyors offer various types of package and tote handling powered roller conveyor to suit many customers conveyor applications.
Line-shaft powered roller accumulation conveyor:
Lineshaft accumulation conveyor drives rollers via elasadrive bands from a drive spool, in turn these are driven by an under-slung drive shaft powered by an AC 240/415volt motor gearbox. The friction between the spool and the shaft drives the roller.
This type of roller conveyor offers accumulation properties once the line pressure exceeds the drive. Various modular ancillary accessories are available to assist in mechanically controlling the product.
24volt DC – “ZLP” Zero line pressure powered conveyor:
This type of powered roller conveyor has a positive drive. Slave rollers are driven by linked drive belts to form a drive zone. Each zone section is powered by a centrally mounted 24volt DC motor and represents a product a zone which is controlled via intelligent drive cards. These cards allow plug and play configurations and have preprogramed logic options. Purpose conveyor roller sensors are used to detect the product.
Belt under roller Zero Line Pressure “ZLP” powered roller conveyor:
Belt-under roller drives precision gravity rollers by a belt running under the rollers. A pneumatically operated rack pushes the belt to the underside of the rollers to drive the product. As upstream accumulation of product is detected the rack releases turning the conveyor back into a gravity conveyor. This obviously has ideal zero-line pressure accumulation properties. Once the accumulated product up stream restarts a signal is sent to lift the pneumatic racks to drive the rollers once again.
