When elevating the production flow, you reclaim valuable floor space, which enables you to add more production capacity or increase accessibility for your operators. Choose the right elevation solution based on factors such as throughput, the processes involved and the features of the products as they appear in the line. Refined design and standardized interfaces to the up- and downstream equipment make the solutions not only efficient but also accommodating to various products. FlexLink offers various elevating solutions including incline conveyors, spiral elevators/spiral conveyors and wedge conveyors.
The incline elevator conveyor is designed for single or multiple lane elevation. It provides gentle handling of sensitive product and is easy to adjust for different products sizes. The incline conveyor can be complemented with different kinds of sponge or rubber wheels to achieve steeper inclines. The design and assembly of an incline conveyor is easy and quickly done in the FlexLink´s Design Tool. This incline conveyor solution has low wear and easy maintenance.
Spiral Elevators / Spiral Conveyors
The purpose of the Spiral Elevator is to transport products vertically to bridge a difference of height or to function as buffer zone. The spiral-shaped conveyor track is the key to its unique compact construction that saves valuable floor space.
The Spiral Elevator is applied in filling and packing lines. The application range is wide, from the handling of individual parcels or totes to handling of packed items such as shrink-wrapped bottle packs or cartons.
The spiral elevator is a compact and high throughput solution for up or down elevation. It ensures a continuous product flow while the elevation is as simple and reliable as a normal straight conveyor.
Elevate your production up to 4000 mm at a maximum speed of 60m/min. This elevator has a footprint of 1200x1200 mm and its stable construction include a powder coated steel frame.
Compact Spiral Elevator
The unique compact spiral elevator offers a 40% smaller footprint compared to the most common solutions on the market, saving valuable floor space.
The spiral conveyor is a compact and high throughput solution for up or down elevation up to 2300 mm over the floor. It ensures a continuous product flow without losses from unexpected stops. With its small footprint of 585 mm in diameter, the spiral provides a seamless integration to an existing production line.
A wedge conveyor uses two conveyor tracks facing each other to provide fast and gentle transport, horizontally and vertically. Wedge conveyors can be connected in series, if proper timing of the product flow is taken into account.
Wedge conveyors are suitable for high production rates and can be designed to save floor space. Owing to their principle of operation, the wedge conveyors are not very suitable for transport of very heavy or irregularly shaped objects.
