Quick conveyor assembly with modular concept
27 May 2015
Interroll’s modular conveyor platform helps its customers, system integrators and OEMs, to react to the growing importance of efficient material flow to end users.
The main element of the new platform is a robust, modular system that incorporates the various key elements of conveying systems. Modern material flow systems can now be planned quickly and assembled efficiently with the help of this modular concept.
Smart, economical and flexible. Interroll’s new generation conveyor modules are the most versatile and durable systems available, assuring highest availability and scalability for future growth. The new modular conveyor platform offers cost and energy efficiency and is truly a plug-and-play solution, with preassembled elements providing for simple on-site installation and reduced planning effort.
Key sorting elements such as transfers, diverts, lifts, stops, etc., can be combined with belt and roller conveyors to realize basic conveying functions such as stopping, distributing, lifting and lowering unit loads. They are often critical in system layout planning as their sorting performance can have a significant impact on the overall system throughput.
Thanks to the modular design of the platform, newly planned systems can be realised extremely quickly. Independently adjustable side guides, steplessly adjustable stands, integrated crossbars for electrical conduit and universally usable spaces for attachment parts make installation even easier.
With the new "Interroll Layouter,” Interroll offers its customers a free AutoCAD plug-in software tool. This allows for modules to be integrated into the customer layout more easily. Because the entries are validated to minimise the risk of bad planning, the conveyor system can be configured much faster and with more planning security.
Together with the world's leading Interroll drive concepts, systems that feature maximum availability, energy efficiency and very low operating and maintenance costs can be built.
The modules that make up the new platform are compatible with previous Interroll modules; therefore customers can easily extend or change their existing systems by simply integrating new modules. This also guarantees full flexibility for existing customers.
The new system was subjected to the hardest possible endurance and performance tests for 10,000 hours to ensure excellent long-term performance and reliability, a quality associated with the name of Interroll.
