Spiral conveyor for high-throughput materials handling

MiniTec UK is launching the new MiniTec WF 3000 Spiral Conveyor. With floor space in high-throughput production processes frequently fully utilised and conveyor lines needing to run through multiple sections, there is often a need to convey products not just over long distances but also to transport them up and down to cater for different line heights; this new product aims to address this issue. As well as providing a lift height of up to 3m, the small-footprint WF 3000 also serves as a storage and production buffer for conveyed items - all within a very small base area. With a conveying distance of up to 50m and a floor space requirement of around three square metres, the WF 3000 Spiral Conveyor transports and elevates a constant flow of materials even under full load.

The spiral conveyor consists of a modular conveyor track of up to 15 sections with a width of 240mm. The height distance between each single section is 200mm, maintaining a low incline angle which helps to safeguard against load slippage as well as contributing to the overall compactness of the assembly. The WF 3000 has an inlet height of 800mm and an output height of 4000mm. The variable conveying speed of 5-50m/min allows for flexible regulation during material flow considering the transport load of up to 3000N. Despite its considerable conveying capacity and large buffering potential, the outer dimensions of the unit maintain a compact footprint of just 1600 × 1600mm and an overall height of 4500mm.

During its development, MiniTec engineers attached great importance to the efficiency and economical aspects of the spiral conveyor. With only two inverter duty gearmotors running the system, the positive effect on energy costs becomes apparent. An advanced control synchronises the motors for accurate, efficient and dynamic speed regulation.

Based on the MiniTec Profile System machine framing and building components, the construction of the WF 3000 Spiral Conveyor provides very quiet operation. By using high-quality materials, the durable unit has virtually maintenance-free operation, and in addition is resilient against contamination and corrosion.

MiniTec provides conveying and materials handling systems for many different industries and applications. The product line includes heavy-load roller conveyors for Kanban-systems, belt driven conveyors, roller and accumulating roller conveyors as well as complex assembly systems like the heavy duty RMS series or the FMS flexible assembly system.
