Indexing Conveyor Systems
Indexing applications focus around moving the product, a set distance, in a step fashion. mk offers a wide variety of standard and custom conveyors for indexing applications.
mk's standard timing belt conveyor, ZRF-P 2010, is ideal for indexing pallets - especially when paired with indexing motors and controls. Indexing conveyors have a variety of uses and can increase the overall functionality of the production line. They provide precise production location and placement, allowing for manual and automated assembly.
Types of Indexing Conveyors
Typically indexing conveyors are fitted with fixtures; which hold the part, product or assembly in place while it moves down the line. mk offers a full line of timing belt conveyors, ZRF-P 2040; ready for part fixture attachments. Chain conveyors are ideal for indexing in harsh environments, and mk's line of stainless steel CleanMove conveyors are ideal for food and pharmaceutical manufacturing.
For applications requiring the highest accuracy in product movement, mk's ZRF-P 3000 wide timing belt conveyor; is the way to go. This conveyor model features motor and controller packages not available for other conveyor types.
Stepper and servo motors are popular conveyor motor options from mk, as well as indexing controls featuring product sensors, encoders and product metering devices.

This conveyor is ideal for use in metal working, robotics and the automotive industry.
