THE trend towards increased product development and changes in packaging designs have placed new demands on production efficiency and flexibility in the fast moving consumer goods industry.
In response, FlexLink has launched a new product guiding system designed to provide fast and easy automatic width adjustment for conveyors in multiple product manufacturing lines.
Compared to the inflexibility of traditional manual systems, the new system can accommodate a wide range of product widths between 35-330mm and heights of up to 300mm.
Fast automatic resetting allows manufacturers to adjust more efficiently to change over times, increasing production volumes to adapt to customer demand.
The system comprises electronically driven guiding units, power supply and a control cabinet capable of controlling up to 220 guide units. It has a modular design that can be easily expanded, installed and integrated into a wide range of conveyor types.
Another benefit of automatic resetting is that it is not restricted to areas that are only accessible to operators. Conveyors can be installed at ceiling height and in closed areas, which contributes to efficient use of factory space and a safe working environment for operators.
FlexLink is a leading global supplier of innovative automation solutions to assembly and manufacturing industries.
