Modular Conveyor System

The low-back-pressure (LBP) modular conveyor system transfers parts of all shapes and sizes with minimal energy. Using the LBP conveyors, parts ride directly on a densely populated array of plastic rollers. The parts flow freely with very low friction and exert minimal force on adjacent parts and automation components. The supplier integrates LBP conveyors with machine tools, robots, operator load stations, parts washers, and virtually any production assembly system. The conveyors are ideal for low-impact part handling with minimal part-to-part contact, work-in-process (WIP) buffering/accumulation, asynchronous or synchronous WIP flow and low-profile/thin-walled/round parts. The LBP segments come in variable lengths with widths of 3.75–12 in. Features include: 45- and 90-degree turns, high- and low-density roller spacing, multiple chain materials, and custom-specified heights. Arbor Automation, part of the Orbitform Group
