Pallet conveyors for a controlled flow of individual products

Pallet conveyors for a controlled flow of individual products

Efficient product handling systems for production, assembling and testing

Pallet conveyors to track and carry product carriers

Pallet conveyors handle individual products on product carriers such as pallets. Each pallet can be adapted to varying environments, from medical device assembly to engine component production. With a pallet system, you can achieve a controlled flow of individual products throughout the complete manufacturing process. Unique identified pallets allows for creating specific routing paths (or recipes), depending on the product.

Based on the standard chain conveyor components, single-track pallet systems are a cost-efficient solution to handle smaller and lightweight products. For products with a considerable size or weight, a twin-track pallet system is the right choice.

Both pallet conveyor solutions use configurable standard modules that make it easy and fast to create advanced but straightforward layouts, allowing routing, balancing, buffering and positioning of pallets. RFID identification in the pallets enables one-piece track-and-trace and helps to achieve logistic control for the production line.

Single track pallet systems for efficient product handling

A pallet-based, single-piece flow solution from FlexLink helps you increase the sellable throughput of high-value products by individual product control. RFID identification in the pallets enables one-piece track-and-trace and production control of the line. Altogether, we offer a predictable process for a continuous flow with high throughput.

The FlexLink single-track pallet handling will support you with flow solutions that suit products of different sizes. We adapt our systems individually for each environment’s specific requirements from small test objects on low wight on a pallet of 100x128mm(X65P) to larger products on a 300x300mm(XKP) pallet that can handle up to 30kg.

Since the system is based on the standard chain conveyor, all the benefits of the modular platform apply. In addition to that, pallet-specific functions, like pallet locating stations, pallet stops, pallet merge and pallet divert stations.

Twin-track pallet systems for assembly and test processes

Twin-track pallets are used if the product has a considerable size or weight. The twin-track pallet system is configurable in standard modules, making it easy and fast to create simple and advanced layouts for routing, balancing, buffering and positioning pallets. RFID identification in the pallets enables one-piece track-and-trace and production control of the line. FlexLink can offer two types of twin-track pallet systems: XT and HU.

The XT conveyor system is a twin-track using a flexible plastic chain pallet conveyor. The system is especially well suited for manual and automatic assembly and test systems in the automotive and electrical/electronics industries. For pallet handling, we offer a wide range of conveyor components. The conveyor module can include conveying, transferring, stopping, locating, lifting, rotating, and supporting functions.

  • Range of pallet sizes (W×L) from 240×240 mm to 640×640 mm
  • up to 30 kg load capacity per pallet
  • Compact version available: XTC (compact beam)

Pre-defined modules and control logic

The HU conveyor system is based on a smart, twin-track conveyor designed for heavy loads up to 200 kg, including the pallet. The HU pallet system is a fully electrical solution primarily designed and well-positioned for demanding applications within the automotive segment.

The pallet system and different functions are delivered in pre-assembled and standardized modules, including all control hardware and pre-defined control logic, leading to shortening the configuration and installation time.

The HU system is fully digitalized, allowing easy data acquisition. With FlexLink's tools, our customers can use the data for line optimization and predictive maintenance. It offers easy-to-use routing and track-and-trace software applications, which allows an advanced material flow to be configured rather than programmed.

  • Range of pallet sizes (W×L) from 480x480 mm to 1040×1040 mm
  • up to 200 kg load capacity including pallet
