Rollerway for Special Pallets
Task and Process
The rollerway shown here serves t transport special pallets that are loaded with pipes, rods or similar parts. The pallets are on sub-carriers that enable a slight tilting position. This prevents the goods, which are placed vertically onto the pallet, from toppling over.
The pallets move on the rollerway fully automatically. To this end, the sub-carriers are moved in a closed circuit; it is possible to select single pallets of groups of certain pallets.
A typical application is the provision of full pallets to an automatic unloading station. The rollerway also serves as a buffer section for the output points. After the pallets have been unloaded, they are returned to the rear line of the rollerway and can be removed e.g. with a fork-lift truck.
