Multi-track Conveyors based on timing belts or conveyor belts
Multi-track conveyors are used for a variety of transport tasks. Thus, their design is commonly custom-made for each application. The use of a multi-track conveyor is wise when transporting large and wide goods. Here, the centre of gravity lies narrowly over the belt surface so an end-to-end contact to the conveyor is not necessary. Typical application areas for multi-track conveyors are the glass industry, solar modules or large car body parts. Due to multi-track conveying systems even angular misalignments in the transport distance can be overcome. Commonly, multi-track conveyors are equipped euther with timing belts or conveyor belts.
Compared to timing belt conveyors, belt conveyors with several tracks might be a more economical solution. With these solutions, you are also capable to mount all kinds of accessories like stoppers, separators, centring stations, labeling devices or printers.
