Applied Automation introduces Carryline plastic chain conveyors

Applied Automation Industrial Systems is introducing the Carryline range of plastic chain conveyors at the PPMA Show and is inviting 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 2015. A spiral conveyor will feature in a machine 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. An SMC Pneumatics non-contact gripper will then pick-and-place the letters.

The spiral conveyor is space-efficient and, like all Carryline conveyors, can be configured to the customer's specification. These conveyors are also easy to adapt and require minimal maintenance, and there is also a choice of aluminium or stainless steel, six chain widths and various chain types.

David Rowe, Applied Automation's Managing Director, comments: "We have ambitious plans for our Industrial Systems division and are pleased to add these conveyors to our product range. 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 are excited to be launching Carryline there - and the robot challenge will be a bit of fun for visitors."

In addition to unveiling the Carryline plastic chain conveyors, Applied Automation Industrial Systems will also be exhibiting the robust MayTec profile system, flat belt conveyors and the versatile pipe and joint system. To find out more about these products, go to
