Robust, mechanical pallet accumulation
The 525 zero pressure accumulation pallet conveyor offers robust mechanical pallet accumulation that typically is a more cost effective solution than a pallet accumulation conveyor using controls. This conveyor works great for long runs of accumulation conveyor without all the extra motors and costs to control the motors. This conveyor can also be combined with turntables, transfer cars, and vertical lifts.
The drive chain on this conveyor is constantly running while an intermediate geared clutch transfers power from the chain to the transport roller. Using a patented combination of pressure rollers and actuating arms, the pallet system engages and disengages trailing sections of intermediate clutches.
