Application Examples: Conveyors

Conveyors are used across a variety of industries for a range of different purposes. They are often used in industries such as automotive, food processing, packaging, pharmaceutical, and bottling just to name a few. If you’re in the market for a conveyor, you might be wondering what kind of conveyor and motor do you need for your application? Rather it be a flat belt or plastic chain conveyance surface or a built-in motor or end drive positioned motor, there is an option to fit your particular application needs.

Check out some of these application examples to see how other engineers have configured their conveyors to work best for their needs. Need more application inspiration? Visit our Conveyor Resource site for more application examples!

Application Example #1

  • Customer: Medical & Nursing Care Products
  • MISUMI Conveyor Applications: Conveyance of Plastic Containers (Plastic Boxes)
  • Conveyed Items: Plastic Containers
  • Conveyor Used: CVSPA

This application is using the CVSPA Conveyor unit, which features a dual plastic chain.  The plastic chain is beneficial because it minimizes damage to work pieces, and allows the user to replace individual links as necessary.

Explanation of pictured application:

A plastic chain conveyor is used to move plastic containers into product loading position to allow the transfer of press formed products into the plastic containers. Plastic containers are advanced to the next process when the containers are loaded to full capacity.

Application Example #2

  • Customer: Electrical Parts Manufacturer
  • MISUMI Conveyor Applications: Used for sorting and discharging of inspected products
  • Conveyed Items : Automotive electrical parts
  • Conveyor Used: SVKA

This application features the SVKA Conveyor unit, which comes in a fixed width.  SVKAs are available in lengths from 300 – 3,000mm and with either a constant or variable speed motor.

Explanation of pictured application:

Welded and inspected products are placed on fixtures and transferred on a dual track conveyor.  Products that pass inspection are blown and vacuumed for static charge elimination. Products rejected by inspection are moved to a Flat Belt Conveyor by a robot and transferred as Rejects. Rejected products are moved onto the flat belt conveyor by a robot and conveyed.

Application Example #3

  • Customer: Coil Manufacturer
  • MISUMI Conveyor Applications: Manufacturing process of motor coil for automobile use
  • Conveyed Items: Motor coil for automobile use
  • Conveyor Used: SVKA

 

This application also features an SVKA Conveyor unit. Featured on this application are some of the many guide rails and & brackets that Misumi offers.

Explanation of pictured application:

Motor is to be positioned towards the front side in order to prevent the motor from contacting the process machine located in the back. Engineering plastic rails as well as mounting brackets were purchased from MISUMI. The guides were modified according to the work piece by the customer after purchase.

  • We absolutely love this #application of Aluminum Extrusion from @silver_sequoia ! Like true #engineers mocking up a CAD model, assembly, and finished product they showed anything is possible with this versatile product. We think all airstream trailers should include AEX. 😉what do you think? Thank you Shane and Cynthia! 👍🏼
