LVP Conveyor Systems have recently built a Knife Edge Conveyor cell with a 90 degree curve conveyor for transportation of small fine packages for the pharmaceutical industry.
The spec was as follows.
- Very small and fine transition section (<5mm)
- Variable speed on both conveyors
- Full FDA design of conveyors and materials
- Interlocking to existing machine on site for safety
In order to achieve the above, we proposed and used an Okura Belcon mini conveyor KBS 1. This model incorporates a knife edge one end and an end roller the other. We then used an FCB fine series curve conveyor. The fine series curve conveyor incorporates rolling tracking wheels to keep the belt running smoothly As part of the cell layout the customer had an OCS check-weigher incorporated into their cell layout design. The OCS check-weigher infeed knife edge conveyor was able to be placed within 5mm of our FCB conveyor allowing the cell to fulfil purpose flawlessly Special purpose machine building is a speciality in LVP Conveyor Systems limited.
