Article from | Montech Conveyors

Transfer systems are mechanical devices used to move materials, components, and workpieces from one station to another in a production process. They can be linear or circular, are available in a variety of design sand integrate well with conveyors, robot arms, automation elements, etc. A key difference from conventional belt conveyors is that transfer systems often have a high level of intelligence that allows them to operate autonomously and communicate with other production units.

 

Intelligent control and automation

A major advantage of transfer systems is their intelligent control and automation. By using sensors and modern technology, they can efficiently monitor and control the flow of materials. This enables rapid adaptation to changes in production, it minimizes downtime and helps avoid bottlenecks. In addition, these systems can capture real-time data, providing valuable insight into the production process and a foundation for continuous improvement.

 

Flexibility and adaptability

The requirements of modern production processes change frequently. In this context, transfer systems demonstrate their flexibility and adaptability. They allow different production lines to be redesigned with minimal effort, so that companies can respond quickly to new market developments or customer-specific requests. The integration of artificial intelligence and machine learning into transfer systems even enables them to learn and optimize new processes independently.

 

Time and cost efficiency

Transfer systems contribute significantly to time and cost efficiency in production. Their fast, precise, and reliable handling of materials and workpieces reduces throughput time, resulting in increased productivity. Automating transport and handling tasks also reduces the need for manual work, minimizing potential sources of error, and personnel costs.

 

Improved occupational safety

Occupational safety also plays a central role in modern production. Transfer systems relieve employees of dangerous and repetitive tasks by handling the transport of heavy or hazardous materials. This significantly reduces the risk of accidents and injuries in the workplace.

 

Multi-functional transfer systems for efficient production and precise assembly

With the LTE and LT40, Montech offers multi-functional transfer systems. By enabling the feeding, unloading, buffering, separating, and positioning of workpieces and workpiece carriers in an optimal way, they ensure smooth and efficient production processes in a wide range of industrial applications. Thanks to the modular toolbox system for framing and conveyor technology, companies can design their production processes efficiently, while the globally proven solutions and extensive range of accessories allow versatile adaptation to individual requirements. With our transfer systems, companies can increase productivity, reduce costs, and improve the quality of their production.

The ERT150 - Dorner’s Next Evolution of Edge Roller Technology Conveyors

The ERT150 - Dorner's Next Evolution of Edge Roller Technology Conveyors

The next evolution in Dorner's Edge Roller Technology conveyor platform, the ERT®150, is ideal for small and light-load assembly automation, as well as medical and medical-device assembly application. The ERT platform is the only pallet conveyor of its kind available with an ISO Standard Class 4 rating for cleanroom applications. Earning the ISO Standard 14644-1 Class 4 rating means Dorner's ERT150 will conform and not contribute to the contamination of cleanrooms to those standards. As implied by its name, the ERT150 (Edge Roller Technology) uses rollers to move pallets through the conveyor smoothly with no friction (a byproduct often seen in belt-driven platforms). The conveyor's open design eliminates concerns of small parts or screws dropping into rollers and causing conveyor damage or jamming. The ERT150 is suited to operate in cleanroom environments requiring a pallet handling conveyor. It is capable of zoning for no or low-back pressure accumulation and is ideal for automation assembly applications within industries including medical devices, electronics, consumer goods among others.
