DE-STA-CO’s CAMCO® Rite-Link Conveyor Delivers High Speed Precision in a Compact Design

Energy efficient link system is more stable and accurate than roller chain

Auburn Hills, Mich., July 15, 2011 - DE-STA-CO, a worldwide leader in robotic tooling, workholding and flexible industrial automation solutions, announces the release of a new product: the CAMCO® Rite-Link conveyor.

Rite-Link's slim, compact design features narrow links, (30.4 mm wide) with 75 mm, 115 mm, or 150 mm pitches. There are five standard center distances available or a custom one can be provided, assembled, and tested for the customer's particular industrial or medical application, and can be used in either an over/under or carousel configuration.
The energy efficient Rite-Link requires no lubrication, so it is virtually maintenance free. Built with lightweight components, it runs quietly, even at higher operating speeds.
"Rite-Link is the perfect fit for manufacturers that have been looking for a cost-effective conveying solution that is more accurate and stable than roller chain," said Lou Wozniak, Product Manager for DE-STA-CO. "It's easy to install and integrate into any shop environment, and lends itself to flexible indexing with CAMCO®'s precision 115RSD rotary servo drive, or a customer's standard servo and planetary drive."
