Motion Index Drives Precision Link Conveyors combine excellent accuracy and high index speed capability with versatility to meet any automation challenge. Precision-machined aluminum links are driven by a high-performance Motion Index Drive unit consisting of an index drive, worm or hardened bevel gear reducer and brake motor. Hardened dual drive sprockets guarantee a backlash-free motion transmission between the drive unit and conveyor chain links. Fixed, hardened chordal compensation cams on both ends of the Precision Link Conveyor maintain a precise tension level in the chain link assembly at all times.
The design of the Precision Link Conveyor is based on a modular concept. The conveyor length between the dual drive sprockets and the fixed chordal compensation cams can be customized according to the required number of work stations.
