Small Conveyor Applications
Home > Small Conveyor Applications
The functionality of an accumulation table (RTA) or Uni-Mate unit is generally for the purposes of product collection for unattended or overnight operation, while also preventing damage to the parts during the collection process.
The movement of small components from one stage of assembly to another is easily expedited with the use of our small conveyors and accumulation tables. The modularity and compact portability of our Lite Series and LP Series small parts conveyors make them a favorite in assembly operations where processes may change from month to month or shift to shift.
The smooth operation and compact size or our Mini-Mover conveyor modules make them ideal for handling sensitive, small precision parts. As the needs of your automotive production evolves, or as production lines are repurposed the modularity and portability of our Lite Series and LP Series small conveyors and rotary accumulation tables makes for an easy transition whether it is a change that occurs from month to month or shift to shift.
The modularity and adaptability of our Lite Series and LP Series small conveyor designs make them easily incorporated into fixed-position barcode scanning vision systems. Whether it’s a side-read, bottom-read or top-read configuration, we can provide the specific features needed for the conveyor element of each system configuration.
Bottling and Capping
Manufacturers of bottling and capping equipment appreciate the modularity and small size of our Lite Series and LP Series conveyor modules. Our LP Series platform is especially well suited for integration into our customers’ bottling machine and system designs, with its very low profile, reliability and cost effectiveness.
Coding systems using either ink jet or laser print are a vital packaging component across many industries, with specialization made in various system types for the shape, size and material of container as well as the setup of the production line. Mini-Mover small and miniature conveyors have proven to be popular components in side-, top- and bottom-transport style package and vision coding systems. Both Lite and LP Series conveyors are cost-effective, scalable and highly adaptable -- making them an ideal choice for integration into a variety of systems.
The needs of cosmetic products during the production process can combine many application types for which our small, clean Mini-Mover Conveyors are highly suited. Our Lite Series and LP Series miniature conveyors are proven choices for small, delicate product handling -- including but not limited to capping, barcode scanning, inkjet printing, labeling and checkweighing and x-ray inspection.
In temporary buffering or surge control scenarios, product can continue to feed into a diversionary conveyor or area of a conveyor. This is useful when the main line stops intermittently, when product needs to divert to a workstation for separate actions, or when product delay is needed to prepare downstream operations to receive product.
Product inspection can involve many types of functions and systems as part of the user’s quality-control or packaging operations. Mini-Mover small conveyor modules are easily integrated into visual inspection, metal detection, x-ray inspection and checkweighing systems.
Incline and decline conveyors are useful in moving product from one elevation to another, and can also be used to help match up height on the production line. The modularity of our small conveyors allow for the incline or decline angle of your needs.
Mini-Mover Conveyors were originally introduced to meet the needs of metalworking businesses, such as metal stamping, punch press, CNC lathe, screw machine and lights-out robotic operations, to name a few.
Exhibit designers and visual arts professionals most often choose Mini-Mover Conveyors in their projects. The affordable Lite and LP Series conveyors are easy for non-engineers to modify, integrate and maintain -- perfect for artists on a budget.
Because we at Mini-Mover Conveyors quite enjoy collaborating in a creative process that the public can enjoy, we're quite happy to participate in bringing fascinating artistic projects to fruition.
For long or varied production lines, product transfer between stations or conveyor units is important for efficient work flow and ensures sensitive parts smoothly through junctions. Lite Series conveyors, LP Series conveyors and Transfer-Station equipped RTA Rotary Table Accumulators can be used singly or in combination to meet these operational requirements.
