New Powered Roller Conveyors
XU60/90 - Line Shaft Overview
The XU-60/90 Line shaft roller conveyors are one of the most versatile and economical materials handling solutions.
With a range of ancillary options, XU-60/90 line shaft conveyors are highly configurable, future proof product given the multiple configurations available from standard components.
XU-60/90Conveyors offer low noise, maintenance, installation cost and power consumption in comparison to alternative conveying systems.
Featuring robust 50mm diameter precision rollers set into powder-coated fully welded frames, the XU-60/90 remains an ever-popular conveying solution.
The XU60/90 Conveyors are supplied in standard 3000mm sections with alternative section lengths available on request.
Multiple lengths can be fitted back to back to make up long runs. Configurations include Curves, Merges, Gates and Transfer Modules.
INFO: Sections of powered conveyor rollers (typically 3000mm lengths) are joined section by section using a coupling sprocket and chain. Sections link back to back, being driven from a single drive, which would be located centrally within the conveyor run being created.
Powered roller conveyors are the most versatile and cost-effective solution available in material handling. Powered rollers can be implemented into all types of different applications throughout the industry. Line shaft conveyor systems are most commonly placed in box or tote conveyor handling systems and are a great way to streamline and automate a number of operations.
The number of drive units required in this type of conveyor system are low when compared to conventional methods of conveyor systems.
The versatility of the modular design is one of the key benefits of a powered line shaft conveyor roller system when taking in to account the number of ancillary modules available (as shown above).
How does LINE SHAFT POWERED ROLLER work?
A powered roller track works by using a number of set grooved rollers, determined by box/tote size and weight. These grooved conveyor rollers are then set into a steel pressed and folded side frame, which is then braced for support. A straight mechanical line shaft is set to one side within this frame, mounted within the cross braces using a number of bearings. The Line shaft itself is made from a solid steel bar, which runs the length of the conveyor section. This line shaft incorporates a number of drive spools and line shaft spacer’s dependent on the pitch of the rollers. These drive spools are then linked to the parallel grooved conveyor roller using a polyurethane drive belt. Once the line shaft turns, the friction from the line shaft turns the drive spools, which in turn pushes the grooved conveyor roller.
