Research Details

Dematic has launched the Rapistan modular conveyor system, which offers improved carton control, quiet operation, and low energy consumption.

All the conveyor modules are built on a universal side channel.

Modular conveyor sections available to build a system include roller or belted straight sections, curves, inclines/declines, right angle transfers, steerable wheel diverters, and more.

The modules utilise many common components so unique parts are minimised and fewer overall parts are required to be kept on hand, making it easier to maintain.

The Rapistan modular conveyor system is scalable and flexible as configuration changes are simple to accomplish.

Modules can be added or moved as needed as a company's business changes.

Right angles transfers and wheel sorters can quickly be added.

The system also can easily be retrofitted into an existing conveyor system.

The Rapistan modular conveyor system can be configured with motorised rollers, standard AC drives or variable frequency drives.

Carton control is optimised through an available segmented belt conveying surface with automatic tracking and self-tensioning belts.

Controls are mounted onboard and are connected with CAN Bus allowing parameters such as conveyor speed, accumulation mode and sleep mode to be adjusted locally or from a central location.
