Timing belt magnetic conveyors
A magnetic timing belt transports sheets quickly and with extreme precision to and from tooling machines. This keeps the workpiece position exactly the same between two tooling steps. In this way, a robot places the sheet accurately in the next machine.
With permanent or electromagnetic timing belt conveyors, you can also transport sheets in a suspended manner.
- For sheets up to 5 mm thick
- Capable of exact positioning, no slip
- Quick start/stop
- Easily integrated
- With permanent magnets or electromagnets
Transport sheets quickly and precisely
With timing belts, you can move sheets safely and quickly to and from tooling machines. The high speed - up to 3 m/s - and acceleration - up to 6 m/s² - enables high levels of productivity. Transporting sheets in a suspended manner is also possible. The toothed belt determines the exact position.
Timing belt magnet conveyors are available in almost all lengths from 0.5 to 6 m. The products shown - as an example - are 1.5 and 2 m long.
They can be arranged parallel to each other. You can then connect the belts together via sprocket linkage.
Advantages of timing belts:
- easy to install
- modular construction
- accurate positioning
- no belt slip possible
- no slip
- quick start/stop - max. acceleration/deceleration 6 m/s²
Permanent magnets or electromagnets
Timing belts are available with permanent magnets or electromagnets.
If only transport is taking place, we use permanent magnets.
When a robot has to remove the steel sheets from the belt, we recommend electromagnets. These can be switched off once the robot arm has taken over the sheet.
