MODULAR SOLUTION FOR AUTOMATED PALLET CONVEYANCE

Based on its successful Modular Conveyor Platform, Interroll is now introducing a similar system for pallets. The Modular Pallet Conveyor Platform is an ideal addition to the Interroll Pallet and Carton Flow Storage System.

In many cases, reliable and efficient pallet handling hinges primarily on keeping transport times between goods receipt and goods dispatch, or between production and storage facilities, to a minimum, ensuring that these processes are highly efficient by means of automation, and keeping planning processes streamlined, assembly requirements low and expansion options flexible.

Interroll’s new solution for pallet conveyance offers all this and more. The platform is an exceptionally versatile pallet conveyor system, distinguished by its highly flexible modular design. In conjunction with Interroll’s tried-and-tested Pallet and Carton Flow Storage System, the new pallet-conveying platform is an ideal foundation on which to build any type of comprehensive pallet storage and conveying solution for any application.

Unlike the flow storage system, in which pallets are buffered in intermediate storage areas on inclined belts due to the force of gravity, the platform is a driven conveyor system for pallets. Depending on the application scenario, the drive is powered by gear or drum motors, which even enables the creation of zero-pressure-accumulation conveyors.

The fully modular system can be planned and arranged extremely simply and conveniently using Interroll’s popular Layouter tool, and consists of chain or roller conveyors, as well as additional modules such as transfers and turntables. Unique modules for special functions are also available on request. The modules are optimally coordinated and fully preassembled on delivery in order to make installation as easy as possible. Additionally, the system can be modified or expanded incredibly easily and cost-effectively at a later date.

Depending on the conveyor design and modules chosen, pallets weighing up to 1,200kg can be transported at a top speed of 0.5m/s. The elements in the system are guaranteed to function perfectly within a temperature range of -28 to 40°C, meaning that it can also be used in low-temperature applications. Depending on the control system used, the system can be designed differently – for different weights, with a variable speed or with an integrated positioning function, for instance.

Pallet inspection stations can also be installed, enabling the dimensions, weight, intactness or suitability of the pallets to be checked. Optionally, further inspections can be carried out: for example, in order to guarantee that only complete pallets with intact goods are transported.

In all of this, however, Interroll has placed great importance on a healthy work environment and optimum workplace safety. The new platform was extensively tested and subjected to extreme endurance and load tests. It complies with all applicable safety regulations and generates a noise level of just 68 dBA during operation.
