Cycle chain conveyor from MK

Cycle chain conveyor from MK MK Profile Systems has again demonstrated the flexibility of its extensive range of conveyors with an adaptation of its standard chain conveyor which can be used as a parts handling conveyor. With this, MK Profiles can offer a chain conveyor which acts as a bespoke dual-lane conveyor. Camshafts are transported into a processing machine (lathe), separated and positioned, so that the camshafts are accurately located in the lathe each time. Since the aim is to process different types of camshafts, the width of the conveyor system must be variably adjustable.

This chain conveyor provides customers with a low maintenance, robust conveyor which is suitable for both dirty and hot environments. Not only can several batches be transported on one conveyor but also the product specific fixtures prevent product contact and material damage. The fixtures screwed to the chain serve as cleats for the camshafts. The conveyor drive shaft is loosely mounted in the second lane, making it possible to adjust the width using two linear modules. These are connected by a timing belt, so that they run in parallel and synchronously. A positioning unit at the end locates and aligns the camshafts.
