The FlexLink conveyor is based on an aluminium conveyor beam with low friction slide rails guiding a flexible plastic chain. Products to be conveyed travel directly on the conveyor, or on pallets/carriers. Products that are handled have a weight from a few grams up to 30 kg, in a variety of shapes.
These products are used to automate material handling processes such as filling, machining, assembly and packaging. Typical industries that use these types of conveyors and automation equipment are automotive, electronics such as printed circuit board manufacturing and surface mount technology manufacturing, medical/health care, and fast moving consumer goods (FMCG).
The conveyor system is adapted to fit a specific industry's requirements.
