2200 Series conveyor with Precision Move technology
The 2200 Series conveyor with Precision Move technology now comes with a Common Drive option to power multiple conveyors in a fixed position from a single drive motor. The 2200 Series Precision Move Common Drive option gives customers flexibility in specifying multiple conveyors with different lengths and widths, but operate them as one unit efficiently. The spacing between the conveyors, however, is non adjustable to provide a guaranteed exact location of product movement for those applications such as automation, assembly, robotic, packaging, visual inspection and sortation. The Common Drive is located at the end of the conveyor, and can easily interface with other equipment. The 2200 Series' cog belting provides exact speed match from conveyor to conveyor for precise movement.
