Conveyor Parts Orientation & Positioning
mk provides a wide variety of conveyor solutions for parts orientation and positioning. This includes conveyor solutions for holding product to the conveyor belt, including magnetic conveyors and vacuum conveyors. These conveyors can also be used to convey product up an incline without the use of cleated belts. Constructed using mk's GUF-P 2000 and GUF-P 2041 flat belt conveyors, magnetic and vacuum conveyors from mk feature a wide variety of options and accessories. See videos below images for examples of magnetic and vacuum conveyors.
Additional Orientation and Positioning Options
Adjustable width and side-gripper conveyors feature multi-lane conveyors mounted to linear positioning devices. Adjustable width conveyors can have a fixed lane and an adjustable lane or several adjustable lanes. These conveyors are ideal for conveyor lines running multiple part sizes. Side-gripper conveyors feature belt conveyors running on their sides with the space between the belts adjusted to properly grip the product from the side. You can see a side-gripper conveyor in action below.
Conveyors can also be outfitted with a variety of devices and fixtures for orientating parts. This includes product nests, either attached to the belt or at the end of the conveyor. Metering devices can also be used to ensure product orientation and placement.
