MiniTec has added a highly interesting product to its range in the area of conveyor systems: The new mini conveyor belt is characterized by a very small space requirement and is used to transport small parts.
Miniature conveyor belt - small footprint, maximum flexibility
The core component is a special 45 mm aluminum profile (Profile 45 FRS), which can be seamlessly integrated into any MiniTec design. It acts as a base and carrier profile for a 25 mm wide conveyor belt. The length of the conveyor belt can be between 250 mm and 2000 mm.
Either a head drive or a center drive is used as the drive, i.e. it can be placed either at the end of the conveyor section or within it. The head drive is equipped with a servo motor, for the center drive either a three-phase motor or a servo motor can be used.
Which motor is the most suitable depends on the situation and the requirements. If the speed is to be variable, servo motors are recommended, because with these the speed can be changed continuously. With three-phase motors, on the other hand, the speed is fixed and is either 3.4 or 4.3 or 6.6 m/min, depending on the type. However, the speed can also be variably adjusted here by means of a frequency converter (accessory).
