Robot challenge to launch conveyors at UK trade show

11 August 2015

Applied Automation Industrial Systems will launch a range of Swedish conveyors at this year’s PPMA Show and invite visitors to take on the robot challenge.

Carryline’s flexible plastic chain conveyor will be unveiled on stand H34 at the NEC in Birmingham on 29 September. The spiral conveyor will feature in a machine set up with a robot spelling challenge.

Visitors can programme the Omron Delta Robot to spell out various words by selecting the correct letters from the conveyor as they pass by. The SMC Pneumatics non-contact gripper will then pick and place the letters.

The spiral conveyor (like the one viewed from above here) is a space efficient configuration and, like all Carryline conveyors, can be built to the customer’s specification. The conveyors are easy to adapt and low maintenance, and there's a choice of aluminium or stainless steel, six chain widths and various chain types.

“We have ambitious plans for our Industrial Systems division and are pleased to add these conveyors to our product range," says managing director, David Rowe. "Applied is now the sole national agent for Carryline in the UK and Northern Ireland and we provide a full design and installation service.

“This is our first time at the PPMA Show so we’re excited to be launching Carryline there and the robot challenge will be a bit of fun for visitors.”

Applied Industrial Systems will also be showing the robust MayTec profile system, flat belt conveyors and the versatile pipe and joint system.
