Pallet-Handling Systems for Flexible Manufacturing
mk North America manufacturers pallet conveyors over three different platforms. This allows for the pallet-handling system to be tailored to meet your specific needs. mk North America is your partner for pallet conveyor systems, providing support before, during and after the sales process. mk believes in offering not only a better product, but also a better solution.
Pallet-Handling Conveyor Benefits:
VersaMove is a non-synchronous workpiece pallet-based conveyor system designed to improve manufacturing productivity and product quality while allowing for maximum process flexibility.
VersaMove pallet conveyors and pallet transfer modules are offered in three platforms: VersaMove Standard, VersaMove Plus, and VersaMove Ultra to suit a wide range of applications. Each platform offers a complete series of pallet transfer, positioning, and control modules to satisfy the varied requirements of manual or automated assembly operations.
VersaMove pallet-handling conveyors are pre-engineered and modular. The system can be easily expanded or reconfigured as your manufacturing needs change. Our workpiece pallet conveyors can be used in a variety of layouts, or combined for even greater flexibility in planning production processes.
Rotate with Vertical Transfer
A rotating conveyor is mounted to a vertical transfer unit. This allows the pallet to be offloaded on multiple levels that are either inline or at a right angle to the infeed conveyor.
Stop with Lift and Locate
The pallet is stopped with the pneumatic cylinder (center back of image) on this VersaMove conveyor. Then it is lifted and located using the four front cylinders. The cylinders on the left have the locating pins, which mate to a bushing in the pallet.
Over Under Parallel Pallet-Handling System
Here a lift and transfer is mounted between the belts on a vertical transfer unit.
Over Under Pallet Conveyor
Operators work on the upper (over) portion of this VersaMove over/under pallet conveyor. The bottom (under) conveyor carries completed assemblies.
