Conveyor systems are often one of the last pieces of equipment considered when developing a new factory automation line. If the conveyor is simply move product from point A to point B, this may not be an issue. But when workpiece pallet-handling conveyors are used; they are used for much more than linear product movement. These conveyors are responsible for stopping, locating, rotating, accumulating and singulating product. They interact with various other pieces of equipment as well as human operators. They can involve dozens of conveyors and hundreds of modules, sensors and devices. The layouts using these conveyors can be complex and involve multiple main conveyor lines, transfer lines and trunks.
It’s no wonder when designing these conveyor systems multiple redesigns and reiterations are often necessary.
