Scope of application of curved roller conveyors

Curved roller conveyors have been continuously improved due to the technological advancement of machinery manufacturing, electrical machinery, chemical, and metallurgical industries, and have gradually developed from the completion of the transportation inside the workshop to the completion of the material handling within the enterprise, between enterprises and even between cities, becoming a material An indispensable part of the mechanization and automation of the handling system. Next, I will introduce you to the curved roller conveyor.

Here is the content list:

How to choose the roller of curved roller conveyor?

1. The length of the curved roller conveyor:

For goods with different widths, you should choose a roller with a suitable width. In general, "conveyor +50mm" is used.

2. Selection of the wall thickness and shaft diameter of the curved roller conveyor:

According to the weight of the conveyed material, it is evenly distributed to the rollers in contact, and the required load-bearing capacity of each roller is calculated to determine the wall thickness and shaft diameter of the roller.

3. Roller material and surface treatment of curved roller conveyor:

According to the different conveying environments, determine the material and surface treatment (carbon steel Galvani, zed, stainless steel, blackened or rubberized) used for the roller of the curved roller conveyor.

4. Choose the installation method of the curved roller conveyor:

According to the specific requirements of the overall conveyor, choose the curved roller conveyor installation method: spring press-in type, internal tooth shaft type, full flat tenon type, through shaft pinhole type, etc. For the tapered roller of the bending machine, the width and taper of the rolling surface depend on the size of the goods and the turning radius.

What are the characteristics of curved roller conveyors?

1.The conveying configuration of various curved roller conveyors has a small footprint and can be expanded and contracted freely

2.The direction of the curved roller conveyor is easy to change, and the conveying direction can be flexibly changed, and the maximum can reach 180 degrees

3.S-type curved roller conveyor, each unit consists of 8 rollers, each unit can be used independently, or multiple units can be connected for use, easy to install

4.S-type curved roller conveyor is flexible, and the ratio of the longest to the shortest state of a unit can reach 3 times

5.S-type curved roller conveyor can flexibly change the conveying direction, and the maximum can be greater than 180 degrees.

What are the installation methods of roller conveyors?

1. Spring press-in type: a. The most commonly used installation method in unpowered roller conveyors, installation, and disassembly is very convenient and fast; b. The internal width of the frame and the rollers of the roller conveyor need to have a certain installation margin, which will vary according to the diameter, hole diameter, and height, usually a gap of 0.5~1mm on one side; c. It is necessary to add tie rods between the racks to stabilize and strengthen the frame; d. It is not recommended that the sprocket roller adopt a loose connection installation method such as a spring press-in type.

2. Internal thread: a. It is the most commonly used installation method in power conveyors such as sprocket roller conveyors. The roller and the frame are connected as a whole through bolts at both ends; b. It takes a relatively long time to install and remove the roller; c. The rack installation openings should not be too large to reduce the height difference of the rollers after installation (the gap is generally 0.5mm, taking M8 as an example, the rack opening is recommended to be Φ8.5mm); d. When it is an aluminum profile frame, it is recommended to choose the "large shaft diameter and small thread" configuration to prevent the shaft from penetrating the aluminum profile after being locked.

3. Flat tenon: a. Originated from the trough-shaped roller set in the mine, the two sides of the round shaft core end are milled flat and then snap into the corresponding rack slot, which is extremely easy to install and disassemble; b. Lack of restraint in the upward direction, so it is mostly used as a belt conveyor idler and is not suitable for power roller conveyors such as sprocket and multi-ribbed belts.

Today,Huzhou Longwei Import & Export Co., Ltd. has been well developed. And the intelligence of curved roller conveyors is very high, and gradually tends to the unification of international standards. Whether it is a simple curved roller conveyor or an intelligent curved roller conveyor. A fiber curved roller conveyor is an ideal choice.
