Safe cardboard stack transfer

22-May 2015 - News

Astec Conveyors designed and manufactured a further heavy duty modular flat belt conveyor system for a leading corrugated cardboard manufacturer to transport stacks of corrugated cardboard weighing up to 1,000kg each. 

The use of plastic modular belting is an alternative to conventional roller conveyor and provides solid support for transportation, dramatically improving the stacks stability.

The heavy duty conveyor side frames are constructed from powder coated mild steel or stainless steel to suit the environment to give a solid and robust structure. The frame is designed with a very low profile to ensure that the height of the conveyor was compatible with an existing trolley car and downstream equipment.
The heavy duty modular belt is blue with yellow inserts on the edge to easily identify when the conveyor is moving.

The conveyor is powered by geared motor unit with inverter control to ensure a smooth movement of loads is achieved and significantly decreases stack distortion, which sometimes occurs when conveying narrow stacks over roller conveyor.
