The company's new aluminium modular profile roller carrier is designed to be an easy addition for material feeders and Kanban systems
MiniTec’s latest addition to its aluminium modular profile solution is the Flexible Roller Carrier System (FRS). As with the wider MiniTec range (and following the company’s philosophy of ‘The Art of Simplicity’), the FRS is easy to assemble and can be readily integrated into existing workplace systems and assembly lines. MiniTec states that the standout benefit of the FRS is it is a straightforward addition to the assembly of material feeders and Kanban systems, thanks to its low assembly height and operating versatility. The system is said to offer a multitude of combinations, all of which can be fitted without tools, allowing it to be used for the widest range of applications.
The FRS comes with a variety of roller strips and elements that offer machine builders and users differing load capacity and roll geometries to select from. They can be supplied in different colours, enabling signal effects to be achieved in the application. Depending on the type, the load capacity of the roller elements ranges from 80N to 150N, and the FRS can be used for inclined sections from 2°, dependent upon the material being conveyed.
MiniTec says that its FRS delivers easier to assemble customised racking systems with minimal tools required, and that it offers substantial cost savings: its potential to upgrade existing workplace and assembly lines without the need for major rebuild or replacements is the key. The FRS can benefit a wide variety of workflow and assembly lines, from consumer electronic assembly to automotive mechanical sub-systems.
