MiniTec is adding a new heavy-duty chain-driven gravity roller table to its extensive range of conveyor and materials handling systems. Capable of transporting loads of up to 300 kg, the new RFK 300 may be specified in working lengths and widths, with adjustable height to exactly match the customer's application.
The new roller table utilises MiniTec's profile rail machine building system with a choice of 45 mm x 45 mm or 45 mm x 90 mm sections using the innovative Powerlock fastening system that is well proven for rapid assembly. Single- or double-chain drive, roller materials, bearings, wheels or feet and a wide choice of standard accessories are available to tailor the system to the dimensions, loads and the ergonomics demanded for the job.
One useful feature of the RFK 300 is that the bearings are fixed and aligned within the profile system, simultaneously providing the guide and the cover for chains and chain wheels, and therefore offering protection and an aesthetically pleasing design.
The new roller table complements the broad range of conveying and roller transport systems available from MiniTec's Conveyor Systems catalogue; belt and roller conveyors - with or without drives for components and materials from 0.5 kg to 300 kg - can be supplied separately or as part of complete transfer systems.
MiniTec's machine framing range is based around a wide selection of attractively finished, extruded aluminium profiles to match application load and layout requirements. Machine frames, enclosures and guards are simply assembled using complementary components that include hinges, handles, panels, feet, wheels, doors, sensors, and switches. Power transmission and machine control components available include linear bearings and timing belts as well as linear and rotary motorised tables, gantry positioning systems and motion controls.
In addition to in-house assembly or component supply, MiniTec UK Ltd also provides an on-site installation service aimed at customers requiring flexibility, predictable expenditure and reliable project scheduling.
For those preferring to build their own MiniTec-based machines, design is simplified with a choice resources that are claimed to be the envy of the machine framing industry; automation system designers can choose from hard copy or downloadable PDF catalogues, an on-line e-catalogue, ICAD software for AutoCAD and CADmenu for other systems. Alternatively, customers can use the web-based i-CAD interactive software to view, examine and download 2D or 3D CAD files for each component in the range and produce a complete parts list.
