Modular conveyor system offers simplified installation and near-silent operation

18 January 2015

Bosch Rexroth has launched its latest conveyor system, VarioFlow Plus, in a bid to reduce production line specification and installation times for machine builders and end-users.

Utilising improved sliding characteristics and low friction materials, the new conveyor system is quiet running, while fewer joints and less rolling friction in the curves minimises wear, reduces energy consumption, increases efficiency and reduces the potential for downtime.

To simplify the planning and specification of production lines, Bosch Rexroth provides MTpro planning software with Layout Designer. This allows machine builders and end-users to design complex multi-conveyor and workstation systems with clear component specifications in a cross-platform CAD format. MTpro provides load calculation reports of the designed conveyors and also provides anthropometric information for ergonomic consideration where operators interact with workplace solutions.

The Rexroth VarioFlow Plus chain conveyor consists of components that can be used universally for all system widths, including the new track width of 120mm. The stable chain permits tensile forces of up to 1,250N and the near-closed chain surface allows even the smallest of parts to be transported safely and reliably.

The system offers individual conveyor layouts and comes in six sizes and two material options: a basic aluminium version and an FDA compliant stainless steel version for sectors that require high hygiene demands, such as food processing.

Bosch Rexroth also offers a work-piece pallet system for the Varioflow Plus, enabling the system to be configured for transporting components in a product assembly environment. Various traffic control elements allow for the pallets to be held accurately at build stations and directed to and from individual conveyor tracks.
