Suspended Conveyors and Suspension Conveyor Belts
The principle of Suspended chain conveyors is that they utilise a continuous powered chain running in a track. Fitted to the chain at regular intervals are single pendants from which the products to be carried are suspended either directly or by means of load-bars or purpose made carriers. Instead of pendants ‘dogs’ may be fitted to the chain in order to push trolleys along a second track normally mounted underneath the chain track. The products to be conveyed are in turn suspended from the trolleys. This type of overhead conveyor system is termed ‘Power & Free’.
TUKU Suspension Conveyors has developed and manufactures its own comprehensive and high quality range of light, medium and heavy duty overhead conveyor systems.
The modular design of these systems, combined with a range of standard accessories such as a selection of different radii horizontal and vertical curves, spinners, indexers, automatic load – unload units etc., enables them to be easily configured to suit the most complex routing and layout requirements of any manufacturing and assembly processes. Installation is quick and easy and the modular design also allows later extensions and system rearrangements to be undertaken.
