Revimac realized the new XHS 700 High Performance Ware Transfer, capable of transferring articles from primary conveyor to cross conveyor up to a speed of 950 bottles per minute, depending on the container dimensions.
The new design is based on a double belt conveyor drive with a short auxiliary belt, that enables to keep the bottles in firm and steady contact with the fingers during their transfer.
The standard configuration comes with one drive for both belts and it is designed to have a 1:2 speed reduction ratio between the primary and secondary belt. As an option, or, as per customer request, it can be installed with one drive for the primary and one drive for the secondary belt. In this case, there is the possibility to set and adjust a different and independent speed on both belts. In any configuration, standard or customized, the containers benefit a perfect stability during the transfer phase.
Moreover, the conveyor drive integrates a fixed cross-conveyor connection to guarantee a very steady article transfer, that is also supported by the perfect alignment between the belts, and the cross-conveyor is connected with a hinged terminal to compensate small height variations.
This new design is studied with a larger radius and a suitable chain guide along the transfer profile, where the fingers have no movable parts being directly supported by the belt in a position that is very close to the contact point of the container. The combination of all these features, added to the perfect alignment between primary conveyor and cross-conveyor belts, enable the containers to reach the maximum transfer stability between the two conveyors.
The system is designed to eliminate completely vibrations on the pockets, thanks to the large guides and the automatic chain tensioner. For easy alignment operations, the XHS 700 ware transfer is designed with an adjustable lower ware guide on the conveyor and cross-conveyor connection.
The adjustable transfer plate and the easy change system of the cross-conveyor roller, make operation and maintenance easier for the operators.
It is worth mentioning that the integration of the double belt conveyor drive is going to be available for the other Revimac Ware Transfer models as well.
Finally, with the addition of the new XHS 700, Revimac have completed the full set of High Performance Ware Handling Equipment where ware transfer, stacker and cross conveyor are able to handle massive production of glass containers with the highest reliability, improving the hot-end efficiency w.r.t. pack-to-melt.
Specially conceived for double, triple and quad gob production, the Revimac High Performance Ware Handling Ensemble is the answer to a continuously growing and changing market, giving the flexibility to handle the widest range of glass containers.
