Heart of this construction is a friction drive, which replaces the conventional drag chain drive. Advantage of this new drive concept is, beside the maintenance friendly execution, the very low noise.
The carousel PROSLOPE will be delivered in complete pre-assembled modules. The frame of each single module is made of high solid steel and aluminium-profiles.
The drive unit PRODRIVE can be implemented in any standard module, by which a total length (related to endless transport chain) up to 70 m could be realized. Carousels, which are longer, need a second drive.
Their bushings are made of high performance polymer. This grants a long life time. Same bushings are used for carriers of transport slats, minimizing variety of spare parts. The slat carriers are produced out of one sheet metal by most modern manufacturing. The PU carrier slats, produced in proven quality, are antistatic and flame retardant according to DIN 4102, B2.
The claddings will be delievered out of stainless steel or, if requested, out of lacquered mild steel.
