Power & Free
Safer Conveyor System
‘Power and Free’ is the name that is applied to an overhead chain system which has the ability to provide a specialised zone to buffer storage for loads. This would be impossible on a conventional overhead conveyor without stopping the entire system stopping. A Power & Free Conveyor is a safer conveyor system to have within your factory or warehouse as there is a decrease in manual movement, meaning fewer injuries.
Conveyor Checking Areas
Having a buffer storage area means you will be able to have a conveyor checking area by accumulating loads to sort through, differ, process or allow linear movement of various items at different rates without the need for stopping. Numerous manufacturing cells are able to operate at different speeds or even different shift times. These storage zones can either be power assisted or completely free for manual movement.
Here at Midland Handling Equipment, we offer a full range of Power and Free conveyor systems that are capable of transporting the lightest components up to a massive 8 tonne. The conveyors consist of our Trakmaster Powered Systems for the drive medium along with a variety of trolley tracks suspended beneath – depending on the size load that will be carried and the weight. The connection is through specially designed pusher dogs attached to the chain at the required pitch. These engage with a towing dog on the front of the load bar. The towing dogs will either be a fixed or an overriding type of towing latch system.
