Roller Lift Transfer Units utilize a series of rollers to lift and engage the payload perpendicular to the direction of flow. The lifting action raises the payload from the in feed conveyor so it can be moved onto the adjacent transport conveyor. The unit is bi-directional and can be set up to manage two, three, and four-way traffic control conditions.
Glide-Line leveraged the open SOLIDWORKS API, the GoAutomate open-source automation tool, and Microsoft Excel software to introduce IMPACT!, the industry’s first in-context conveyor configurator, which combines access to solid modeling tools and snap-to mating functionality with prices, part numbers, and ordering capabilities in real time.
This guide is built to address some of the challenges you may be facing when planning conveyors into your automation system engineering designs. We provide potential solutions to help you solve these problems, plus tips on how to inject creativity into your own systems when it comes to conveyor system designs.
