Overview
IC Series
The IC80 series precision link conveyor is a perfect choice for linear assembly when more than 20 stations are required. The conveyor advances aluminum or steel chain links very accurately up to 120 cycles/min. One or multiple links can be fed in an indexing or non-patterened motions with a servo motor drive. Chain links are available in 80, 120 or 160mm sizes with a hollow option to reduce inertia and gain access to the back of the part. Conveyor lengths range from 960mm to unlimited lenghts in 480mm sections. Each chain link is supported on the back and 4 corners with preloaded bearings. Light machining can be done without backlash in the X, Y or Z axis.


 

Features

• Up to 120 cycles per minute with single or multiple chain link feeds.
• Affordable cam indexer drive or servo motor drive option for frequent cycling.
• 80, 120 & 160 mm (3.14, 4.72 & 6.29 inches) chain link length sizes.
• Chain feed pitch accuracy:  ±0.1 mm (±0.004 inches).
• Standard nickel plated steel chain links or hard anodized aluminum option.
• Standard hollow chain links weigh less for faster speeds, solid, pocketed or custom are available.
• Hollow chain links and open frame concept enables access to the back of the part.
• Open frame/hollow link concept allows simple escapements and eliminates additional part setups.
• Rigid conveyor frame can support 227 kg (500 lbs.) between 1440 mm (56 inches) leg centers.
• Precision link conveyor frame length are in 480 mm (1.57 feet) increments.
• Additional conveyor frame sections and chain links are easy to install on or off-site.
• Precision link conveyor lengths are 480 to 12000 mm (1.57 to 39.3 feet).
• All chain link bearings are needle bearing types to reduce "chain stretch" and extend service life.
• One grease fitting mounted on the chain link face lubricates all pin bearings (automated greasing systems are available).
• Extreme bending moment capacity; the chain link bearings are preloaded in all axis (X-Y & Z).
• Single chain link or multiple link feed pitches are available in forward or reverse directions.
• Solid aluminum links add rigidity and hollow steel links reduce the load for faster cycling.
• Chordal chain tensioner design makes the chain follow its natural path to keep the tension consistent at all times.
• Minimal "chain stretch" occurs since the chain tension is consistent during feed progressions.
• No routine chain tensioning required; the chordal design requires tensioning at assembly only.
• Consistent chain tension reduces vibration to inherently extend the chain bearing service life at high speeds.
