Low noise conveyor system with fast assembly
4th Quarter 2017, Other technologies


Future-proof production, assembly, and packaging lines must be able to deal with even smaller batches, more frequent product changes, and a large number of product variants. Chain conveyor systems used in production, therefore, have to be easy to configure and assemble with fast response times and shortened time-to-market providing the major competitive edge for machine manufacturers and users. Additionally, low noise operation is also crucial for this type of system. Bosch Rexroth’s new VarioFlow Plus chain conveyor system fulfils all of these requirements, supporting both manufacturers and users.

VarioFlow Plus is ideal for achieving a fast time to market, as with this chain conveyor system, users can easily configure individual, space-saving solutions for versatile, complex transportation tasks, even for particularly difficult environments.

A number of standardised modules cover differing application requirements are also available with maximum interchangeability and modularity. To simplify selection and correct combination of the modules, Bosch Rexroth offers MTpro planning software with Layout Designer.

Conveyors and even complex multi-conveyor and workstation systems can be designed, components selected and the results output to CAD with this system. In addition, valuable time can be saved during commissioning as the innovative drive solution provides a great degree of planning freedom and the motor mounting position can be chosen on-site. This reduces the selection of drive variants to a minimum.

The new chain conveyor system greatly reduces noise and thus improves working conditions. Bosch Rexroth achieves this level of smooth operation through optimised sliding characteristics and the use of slide rails with lateral mounting. At the same time, this ensures low wear and fast, reliable assembly.

The Bosch Rexroth VarioFlow Plus chain conveyor system consists of components that can be used universally for all system widths, including the new track width of 120 mm. This reduces the need for spare parts for users. The stable chain permits tensile forces of up to 1250 N. The chain surface is nearly closed, allowing even the smallest of parts to be transported safely and reliably.

The system offers individual conveyor layouts and comes in six sizes and two material options: a basic aluminium version and a stainless steel version for higher hygiene demands, for example in the food industry, where Bosch Rexroth uses components made of FDA-compliant materials. Alternatively, Bosch Rexroth offers a work piece pallet system suitable for transporting work piece pallets in the automotive and electronic industries.
