Omni-directional Transfer Unit
For conveyor-switches and conveyor-crossings into ANY direction.
Thanks to the ingenious technique, these patented avancon OTUs (Omni-directional-Transfer-Units) offer a simple, easy to fix and high performance solution for crossings and switches in conveyor lines and logistic systems. See also the video
As a universal and variable element it is able to transfer all sizes of goods with very high speed (7000 boxes per hour).
This brick can be just put together through the dove-tails and being connected with the timing belt, one to another. So you get any size of transfer tables for switches and diverters, crossings and sorters and many more.
The avancon OTU drives the rollers directly through a bevel gear system inside.
All OTUs of a transfer table are connected with T-5-belts (timing belt) and the direction is changed via a tooth rod. The latter is moved by one or two new high performance BRDC-motors.
A separate field-bus AS-interface controls the OTU table with all the brush-less motors, smooth and fully automatic. It is designed for the avancon ZPC conveyor-system, but can also be used
in other material handling systems. The controls can communicate with
higher lever IT/BUS topology.
There are generally no pneumatic devices in use! OTU-tables are built very flat!
The avancon OTU table run with 1.5 meters/sec. and conveys about 7'000 units per hour, depending on the length of the goods.
