Hytrol is always ready to tackle any material handling challenge, no matter what size. Here, rolls of raw material used in the manufacture of paper towels are moved on special slider-pan design belt conveyors. The rolls measure 102 in. diameter x 102 in. tall and weigh in at 5000 lbs. The conveyors are mounted side by side on one leg of an upender. A "V" deck will be mounted on the other leg of the upender. An AGV will deliver the rolls to the "V" deck of the upender with the core of the roll parallel to the floor. The upender will stand up and the roll will rest on the first pair of conveyors (with the core perpendicular to the floor) and begin the accumulation process. At the end of the accumulation line, the rolls are picked up by a squeeze clamp fork truck.
10 ga. slider pan conveyors with 4 ga. side channels. Intralox #1400 flush edge flat top belt. 2-1/2 in. square bore shafts. Center bearing support design. Lexan front plate on the chain guard. 2 HP energy efficient motor. Conveying speed is 30 FPM.
