New Case Conveyor Product Family
Jul 28, 2008
FKI Logistex, a global leader in integrated material handling solutions, has announced the launch of Logistex Case Conveyor Solutions, an advanced conveyor product family for the global market. The new conveyor family combines superior performance, reliability, throughput and ease of maintenance with the latest energy-saving features, reducing operating costs and increasing energy efficiency.
Logistex Case Conveyor Solutions handle cases, totes and trays and are comprised of highly modular products that can be tailored for a wide range of markets and applications, such as apparel, automotive, consumer goods, postal and parcel distribution, food, beverage, pharmaceutical and retail.
"Our new case conveyor line is backed by more than a century of conveyor technology experience and our global team of engineers," said Steve Ackerman, president, FKI Logistex North America. "Logistex Case Conveyor Solutions will not only maximize return on investment by providing maximum system uptime, it will also reduce companies' environmental impact through reduced energy costs."
The new conveyor line sets a benchmark for low installation and maintenance costs. All Logistex Case Conveyor Solutions share parts and controls, providing a solution that simplifies maintenance, reduces spare parts inventories and makes reconfiguration easy.
A patent-pending band cartridge system on the Logistex RT200 Right-Angle Transfer conveyor allows maintenance technicians to replace a damaged band in seconds instead of minutes. An innovative "lift and turn" wheel assembly on the Logistex DV200 Diverter includes only two moving parts - both of which are easy to replace - reducing diverter conveyor maintenance. In addition, the ZC200 Zone Control system features flexible operational modes and pre-programmed functions for reduced commissioning time and simplified training. The ZC200 requires no tools for installation, and is equipped with local hardware diagnostics and easy switch settings for control configuration.
