Rotech Machines, a manufacturer of coding and marking technology, has launched a new range of modular conveyor systems designed specifically for food, pharmaceutical, medical and industrial packaging operations.
The small, modular, interlocking conveyors seek to offer users greater packing and coding flexibility by allowing them to pack goods and print codes at speed in any location. The all-in-one conveyor systems are reportedly particularly beneficial where space is limited, where coding and packing is currently performed in different locations, or where a conventional industrial conveyor is too large.
Each Rotech conveyor is designed for the installation of a range of small, high-speed printers anywhere on the line, such as thermal inkjet or large area printers. Users can apply codes onto all packaging types including cartons, bottles, flat packaging or direct printing onto outer boxes.
Available with either fixed feet or castors, Rotech says that the free-standing modular conveyors will improve packaging efficiency, save space and speed up output.
Because Rotech conveyors are built to order, specific drive systems can be fitted to suit speed and load requirements – the company says that this is particularly useful for high throughput or industrial goods.
Rotech conveyors are available in 500mm increments, with a standard belt length of 1.5m and a width of 400mm. Each conveyor module can be used independently or interlocked for long applications and can also be used as individual packing and coding stations.
