MiniTec launches spiral conveyor for high-throughput materials handling
22 August 2012
The new MiniTec WF 3000 spiral conveyor, which provides a lift height of up to 3m, also serves as a storage and production buffer for conveyed items – all within a very small base area.
With a conveying distance of up to 50m and a floor space requirement of around three square metres, the WF 3000 transports and elevates a constant flow of materials even under full load.
The spiral conveyor consists of a modular conveyor track of up to 15 sections with a width of 240mm. The height distance between each single section is just 200mm, maintaining a low incline angle which helps to safeguard against load slippage as well as contributing to the overall compactness of the assembly.
The WF 3000 has an inlet height of 800mm and an output height of 4,000mm. The variable conveying speed of 5 to 50m/min allows for very flexible regulation during material flow considering the transport load of up to 3,000N. Despite its considerable conveying capacity and large buffering potential, the outer dimensions of the unit maintain a compact footprint of just 1,600 x 1,600mm and an overall height of 4,500mm.
Based on the MiniTec Profile System machine framing and building components, the WF 3000 provides extremely quiet and virtually maintenance-free operation and is resilient against contamination and corrosion.
