FlexLink and gears These compact components use small radius horizontal bends and a range of means for vertical transport. Gentle transport with smooth-running acetyl resin chain eliminates product damage. The system also features components for a complete pallet system that can be used to build a special automation system for your application.

FlexLink components provide optimum solutions to material handling problems. These solutions ultimately translate into increased production efficiency and profitability. This proven design has been thoroughly tested and refined since the first installation in 1979.

Advantages and Benefits for FlexLink Customers

     
Standard System Solutions

Elevator/Lowerator provide efficient solutions for vertical product transports with a minimum of space requirements. The products are elevated at an angle from 5° up to 90° depending on product shape and size.

Compact Buffer conveyors are used as an accumulation/buffer zone between machines. It is used either as an in-line accumulator which always is included in the transport path or as a by-pass accumulator which you connect to the transport path when temporary accumulation is necessary.

Wedge Conveyor uses two conveyor tracks facing each other to provide fast and gentle horizontal and vertical transport. Wedge conveyors are connected in series, suitable for high production rates, and are designed to save space.

Pallet Systems for robotic, automation systems, and assembly cells.

Wide Track Conveyors for larger parts where the entire product must be suported.

AutoAdjust Rails for automatic adjustment of conveyor guide rails using electrical controls

Spiral Elevator for transporting product from one level to another.

De-puck unit removes the puck (product carrier) from the product before the product is conveyed to the final packaging. Pharmaceuticals and personal care products are typical applications. The puck increases stability for unstable packages and minimizes changeover costs.
