Steering control of transport containers in tape conveyor plants
Variable modular system
Execution as if flaps-, tilt-, sliding-strips
Coding of flow programmes
Various mounting options
Coding visually readable
Coding strips are used for the steering control by transport containers in tape conveyor plants. Each coding strip consists of a fixed label and any number of reflecting variable marks. The targets can be stopped by turning down, dumps or shifting. At the stations of the conveyor belt, at which the container is to stop, are two light barriers. These are mounted in the distance of the fixed and one variable mark. During agreement of target and fixed label of the coding strip with the light barriers of the station, the containers will be removed.
Coding flap strips
With the multi-coding flap strip reflector flaps secondary or one above the other are arranged. The flaps carry the target number on a side and on the other side the reflectors. The reflectors can be switched on and off by turning down. A resting holds the flaps in the desired position. This strip is caracterized by a simple setting of the desired targets. A multiplicity of mounting elements facilitates the mounting at most different containers.
Coding tilting strips
In order to enable as much as possible targets with a strip to trigger be able also an automatic actuating of the coding cams, this tilting strip wasdevelloped. Switching on and off are done via dumps of the cams by 45 degrees. By the low tilting bracket it is possible to execute a setting of the targets with a coding machine which is controlled manually, with a code pen or directly by a computer. thus additional rationalization effects result.
In conveyor plants, with which only are to be started a low amount of stations, a coding sliding strip is often used. The container must again be coded for each target which can be started. Since these strips are provided with large reflectors, they are suitable also for lower exact path guides and rough environments.
If only individual boxes has to be indicated, single reflectors can be added on the boxes.
The coding strips are made of significant, solvent-resistant, break-proof and blow-tough materials. For the flaps and tilting strips the coding side is covered with Scotchlite reflex transparency. For the sliding strips the coding side is covered with a reflector. The coding strips can be used in the temperature range between°-20 C to approx.°80 C.
