Details

FlexLink has developed a conveyor system (the X85) that allows high line capacity with speeds up to 390ft/min. X85 designed to minimize production stops, producing the highest possible mean time between failures. The power consumption can be drastically reduced by having the system running in accordance with the need of the downstream machine.
 
The new X45 and X45e conveyor platforms from FlexLink are easy to integrate and offer sophisticated yet simple controls design.
 
X45 is the new, compact conveyor platform which offers easy integration with machines and space efficient filling, production and packaging lines. Product handling is gentle and stable, contributing to high product quality standards and high line efficiency. The X45 design offers a long service life, low noise level and easy engineering.  The compact boundary dimensions and the ability to run in bends allow new opportunities to automate sophisticated flows in a simpler way than before. The X45 conveyor runs very smoothly which is crucial e.g. in transporting standing vials in the pharmaceutical industry.

X45e is an intelligent platform for automated processes such as assembly, controlled filling and samples analysis. Sophisticated 24 V drive units and puck handling modules with embedded controls, simplifies control engineering and enables high line efficiency. Power consumption is very low due to the efficient PM motor and transmission. All is RFID prepared, facilitating track & trace and automated QA capability. 

Potential Benefits

Power consumption can be significantly reduced by matching the system running speed to the needs of the downstream machine.
