Buffer Conveyors


  • In-process equipment for buffering components in an automated machining line
  • Buffers can be tooled to handle a variety of machined components including crankshafts, pinion gears, ring gears, steering shafts, cam shafts and transmission shafts


  • Interchangeable buckets and tooling plates allow for various wear materials to be used for part touching details
  • Interchangeability also allows for changes in product design over the course of several years as the end user continues to make changes for newer models
  • Buffers can be shipped fully assembled an ready for electrical and pneumatic drops to be supplied by the end user


  • Brass, nylatron, or hardened steel inserts for wear details
  • Buffer conveyors are driven by a large oversized roller chain with self-lube bushings that do not require periodic maintenance
  • SEW Eurodrive gearmotors with brakes for positioning
  • Part rejects are designed with linear slides to minimize componentry and maintenance
  • All positioning is done with proximity sensors
  • Turn-key systems can be provided
