Built-in alarm system of conveyor prevents stamping tool damage

Traditional conveyors are seldom equipped with self-alarm systems, therefore they fail on communicating with the stamping press and preventing damages. Downtime due to malfunctioning of these conveyors can be very costly either in forms of production interruptions or, in worst scenario, tool damage. Piling up scraps caused from output problem risk shocking and breaking stamping tools and damaging press equipment. Even if the production could be hailed promptly, the productivity is adversely effected by time consuming troubleshooting.

Lars Sandberg, the inventor of Conveyor 22’s electric linear conveyor, presents his solution:

– Being deeply aware of such key issue, I integrated a motion sensor into our conveyors which works as a self-monitoring alarm system. In the event of an interference, our conveyor talks with the operating system directly through sending a warning signal. The whole production line becomes halted without external sensors needed. We give maximum security to our customers.

The extra security makes many big companies choose Conveyor 22. After testing the first conveyor for 1.5 years, SCANIA in Oskarshamn decided to build 8 conveyors into their new stamping press tool. Production Technician Tobias Carreberg explains the benefit of the built-in alarm system:

– Conveyor 22’s conveyors make our job easier. In case of interference, we get an alarm from the conveyor and we can see exactly where the problem exists without troubleshooting needed. Now we do not risk getting scraps piled up which could cause tool damage. We are very satisfied with Conveyor 22.

Automation Technician Nicklas Nordlöf tells that:

– The electric conveyors are fully integrated into the stamping press tool and controlled by our PLC system. The evacuation duration of these conveyors is programmed from first punching to a few minutes after last punching.

“Sometimes what never happens, is the most important of all”, as Volvo says. The security of conveyors should be one of the most important buying criteria, when take into account the overall costs of stamping tools and press equipment.  Small output devices matter a lot.

Quick Cassette solved space issue on stamping press output in EBP i Olofström

Conveyor 22 has developed a space saving plate for inserting an entire output device into various manufacturing machines. It can be pushed in or under a stamping tool and locked in a few seconds. With the double hand tensioners, the whole conveyor unit is stably locked in the tool. Quick Cassette is available in different versions with three different options on width.

Quick Cassette has solved the space problem for stamping press output in EBP i Olofström. At the beginning of 2017, EBP in Olofström bought two conveyors with insert fasteners “Quick Cassette” and feeding trays from Conveyor 22. Quick Cassette is a 85 mm high conveyor unit that can be pushed into the press tool. Feedback from Patrik Henriksson, Press Process Engineer at EBP:

– Without this solution for our output problem, we had not been able to undertake this stamping project.

– The equipment has been working perfect since the first day. It is so quiet that you risk forgetting to turn it off when the working day is over.

CEO of Conveyor 22 AB, Anne-Maj Öström says: “We want to make the output more convenient regardless of space limitation for stamping press industry. Productivity should be the focus rather not to be limited by small output issues. ”

Mobile stand facilitates flexible part removal in stamping press

Conveyor 22 has developed an easy and cost-effective solution for moving the complete conveyor unit among manufacturing machines. It has been successfully delivered to Lindab Profile AB in Förslöv.

Stamping presses are commonly equipped with one or more conveyors for getting the surplus and finished part out. A permanently installed conveyor in a fixed position can be complicate and difficult to reposition, wasting valuable time and resources. For example, rebuilding the whole conveyor system when changing tools or not using the conveyor while the machine is out of production. The accumulated cost of handling such a fixed conveyor system is high.

As an additional method of mounting the conveyor on a manufacturing machine, the Steady Stand is an alternative attachment to fasten the conveyor with feeding trays and other extra features. Thus, the usage of output device becomes infinitely flexible and efficient.

Several satisfied customers are already using Steady Stand in their production lines. On this occasion, we designed a low-profile model “Steady Stand 500” and equipped it to fit beneath Lindab Profile’s stamping press: Conveyor Black Line 141, Steady Stand 500 with 3-wheel adapter ensuring stability on uneven surfaces and tray support with sliding parts. The control box is mounted directly on the Steady Stand and the cable between conveyor and control box is stored within the stand. Steady Stand 500 is concrete-filled, weighing 150 kg and has lockable wheels.

We want the stamping press industry to maximize the use of our conveyors and make their production faster, more efficient and profitable.

A smart solution for backward conveying

Conveyor 22 presents an invention “Back-Track Tray” – to solve a common issue of returning details within automation applications.

The entire system consists of two conveyors, Up Line and Black Line 141 with two feeding trays, one delivering tray and one returning tray. The unique motion created by linear conveyor Black Line, together with the force of gravity, enables Back-Track Tray to transport the details backwards.

Firstly Delivery Tray moves the details forwards for the purposes of viewing, picking or placing in a fixed position. Then unpicked or defective parts are gently returned by Back-Track Tray to the magazine. Lastly Up Line returns the details to complete circulation.

New vertical conveyor Up Line

Conveyor 22 now launches a new linear conveyor for vertical transportation, electric driven and double action step feeder, Up Line. Double action describes the operating principle that every step moves up and down alternately, resulting in high capacity.

Up Line orients and raises components over short to medium heights easily and gently, which minimizes wear and tear on the material being handled. Output height setting is 190 mm adjustable with a crank. Magazine is customized depending on the sizes of transported details and low filling height is user-friendly. This flexible step feeder is a good option, the noise level is low and the size is compact. Up Line, with its built-in inductive sensor, is perfect for automatic feeding and presentation of parts for any assembly, inspection or secondary application.

With the combination of Up Line and Black & Clean Line, Conveyor 22 is ready to deliver a more complete conveying system and fulfill more customers needs.

Conveyor 22 corporates with ABB in Scanautomatic 2016

In the Scanautomatic fair 2016, ABB and Conveyor 22 together present an easy and cost-effective solution for collaborative robotic application.

Conveyor 22 designed this robot cell for ABB, intended to present an application possibility for their industrial robot YuMi to mount mechanical components. We display a visualized platform that imitates a complete assembly line around YuMi and shows its capability to perform a quality job. In the robot cell YuMi interacts with our linear conveyors in a compact and flexible way of transporting, separating, organizing, storing, picking, assembling and sorting.

YuMi assembles two components. Left feeding tray organizes the screws and ends with sensor and storing slit, which enables YuMi’s left hand to pick from a fixed position. Right feeding tray is designed to turn and separate the nuts, which allows YuMi’s right hand to identify them through the gripper’s vision camera before picking. Assembled details and extra unpicked parts are left into the middle feeding tray, which is made of different layers and tracks in order to recycle all details. The conveying system circulate all components by using different feeding trays, three horizontal conveyors Black Line 141 and two vertical conveyors Up Line jointly controlled by the robot’s control system.

We are glad that this robot cell has received great attention from the visitors and it will also be exhibited in Annual Suppliers’ Forum SLD2016, together with ABB. Scanautomatic 2016 gave us many new business contacts, both national and international. We would like to specially thank ABB for their pioneering leadership through cooperating with Conveyor 22, as well as new and old customers for your continuous interest in our conveyors.

Greetings: Anne-Maj, Lars and Muzi, Conveyor 22
