LP (Low-Profile) Series of Mini-Mover conveyors is available with Razor-Link(TM) option, which accelerates and facilitates modular setup for close-proximity applications such as multi-station transition, small-parts transfer, and 90° turns. Razor-Link assembly ha narrowed nose profile that tapers to depth of 0.8 in. and allows conveyor end to touch or link to adjoining station without belt interference, unit-to-unit gap, or need for bulky mounting hardware.
Whipple Enterprises today announced production availability of the new Razor-Link(TM) option for its LP (Low-Profile) Series of Mini-Mover conveyors. Razor-Link(TM) allows quick and easy modular setup for close-proximity applications, such as multi-station transition, small-parts transfer and 90-degree turns.
The Razor-Link(TM) assembly features a narrowed nose profile that tapers to 0.8 inch in depth, which allows the conveyor end to touch, or link, to an adjoining station without belt interference, unit-to-unit gap or need for bulky mounting hardware.
Razor-Link(TM) uses a true "roller nose" design that uses two precision-machined aluminum pulleys to provide smooth, bearing assisted belt travel. This design boosts energy efficiency, lowers belt resistance and provides structural rigidity. The Razor-Link(TM) design affords longer component life and operating efficiency vs. the "knife-nose" options currently on the market that exert tremendous friction via belt travel over a rigid end bar. At the user's option, Razor-Link(TM) can be mounted on one or both conveyor ends and can be configured for push or pull belt-drive directions.
With the Razor-Link(TM) option added to the LP Series Mini-Mover family, the material handling industry now has low-cost and highly configurable building blocks for multi-station floor plans where space limitations call for a mini conveyor setup. The LP Series Mini-Movers also offer one of the lowest-profile product lines in the industry, at 1.5 inches profile height. Additionally, Razor-Link(TM) equipped LP mini-conveyors easily integrate with Whipple's Rotary Table Accumulators, ideal for unattended operations or overnight usage.
