Modular Components rolls out a ‘smart’ conveyor

22-03-2011

The latest item to hit the shelves at Modular Components & Automation is the intelligent Modular Roller Conveyor.

Designed by German company Item, it fills the gap for interlinking workbenches with a simple interlocking roller conveyor system.

The base can be fitted with rollers, balls, brushes or slide strips. Each component snaps into place along the aluminium profile, and can be changed to suit the application.

Multiple colors are available for the rollers, allowing an easy indication of fill levels.

The brushes can be used in conjunction with the balls for gentle transportation. The slide strips can also include a raised section to take things to another level.

Advantages include flexibility in length and width and an ability to easily modify the structure and components when needed.

Contact Modular Components & Automation to learn more about this clever system.
