It is possible to lift a weight as much as five hundred pounds. The vertical conveyors are currently operating at different levels, or at least, it has the ability to do so. That is to say it is modelled along the lines of pneumatic, in this case, vertical conventions. A pneumatically powered vertical conveyor (or VRC) uses a pneumatic cable cylinder to raise and lower powered vertical conveyor lifts between its different levels.
High end units as they are called by the manufacturers, have the ability to travel as fast as one hundred and fifty feet per minute (FPM). Top and bottom shock absorbers have been installed to ensure that all carried products are being transferred intact and as safely as possible from level to level. It is usual for a cantilever carriage design to be used. Product movement configurations are set at C flow, right angle flow or Z flow.
Multi-poly conveyors are quite popular, being ideal for all light loads. Those processing and/or manufacturing operators that require responses in regard to the uniqueness of their operations are gifted with a variety of operating speeds, always available to accommodate infeed and outfeed requirements. All units that are ultimately shipped to customers have been prewired, devices have been tied into terminal strips.
PLC controls, in full, can be supplied as well per request. Vertical conveyors are currently being built in accordance with the current ANSI B20.1 safety recommendations. Conveyors typically feature the installation of safety tunnels at entry and exit points as well as product sensing (so-called) photo-eyes. Frames installed are fully guarded. A CAM braking system is installed as well. And for the purposes of good risk management, safety placards are provided too.
Readers, that in a conveyor belt are some of the features of vertical conveyors.
