Conveyors & Linear Motion
Completing and Complimenting Each Other
Linear positioning systems and conveyors each have their own unique, yet complimentary, functions in industrial automation. Often these two pieces of equipment are stand-alone solutions. But when you combine the two – conveyors and linear positioning system – a truly unique, one-of-a-kind solution, emerges, harnessing the power of each module into a powerful, versatile, material handling solution.
Chain Options for a Safer Conveyor
Accumulating roller chain conveyors are the ideal conveyor platform for accumulating and storing pallets. This is due to the type of chain used in these conveyors (see image image in article). Conveyors, such as the SRF-P 2045 and SRF-P 2010, which are designed using this chain, accumulate pallets with little-to-no backpressure. 

However, this chain is not without a downside. It is often criticized for the space between the rollers - which can allow small parts to get into the conveyor and is often seen as unsafe around human operators. But there is an alternative - continue to our article to learn more.
