This custom conveyor system was designed to transfer blister packs of medical products between machinery assembling the blister packs and machinery packaging the packs into cartons. Packs were loaded onto the conveyor at the entrance end and shuttled sideways into a packaging machine at the discharge end. The high-precision requirements of this application necessitated the use of a custom timing belt conveyor.
This Custom Conveyor System was designed for a manufacturer who needed to load empty trays with parts for an automatic assembly operation. Empty trays were loaded onto a powered Auto-Kinetics heavy-duty belt conveyor. Upon reaching the end of the belt conveyor, a pneumatic slide pushed a single tray sideways onto a robotic loading station. Once in position, a second pneumatic slide clamped the tray in place for loading.
