Press release from: Montech AG

The double belts of the new transport system LTplus are driven by integrated drives with 60 mm diameter.

The double belts of the new transport system LTplus are driven by integrated drives with 60 mm diameter.

The Swiss conveyor technology specialist Montech has developed the new transport system LTplus: its peculiar feature is the compact, fully integrated drive.

The new transport system LTplus is comprised of a double belt, which carries individual workpiece holders at a speed up to 20 m/min. The latter have a load capacity of 16.8 kg and are provided with RFID, so that they can be identified at any time, thus enabling “chaotic” operation.
The transport system is available with workpiece holders in three different widths (200, 240 and 320 mm), with electrically operated transfer gates for insertion/extraction, 90° and 180° curves, positioning and placing devices, cross removal module, lifting/rotating units, stoppers, gantry lifting units, elevators and buffers.
All components can be easily adjusted thanks to the Quick-Set profile system, normally without modifying the chassis.

Highlight: drive technique
The peculiarity of the transport system LTplus is the drive technique: the drive, with 60 mm diameter, is integrated in the shaft, with no protruding parts, so that it noiselessly operates the double belts that carry the workpiece holders.
The motion control card of the motor runs the Autodrive software developed by Montech, so that no higher-lever control is required to manage the process. Conveyor speed, direction and acceleration can be adjusted seamlessly via software over an open fieldbus connection.

High efficiency level
High efficiency at 90% is achieved through the adoption of a drive with optimized efficiency and the Autodrive software. The latter, for instance, activates the motors only when required.
The use of capacitors levels off the starting peaks and reduces the installed power capacity required to feed power to the system. The use of electric actuators, such as stoppers and transfer gates, results into a higher efficiency degree.

Sustainable and energy-efficient
Gianluca Aloisi, Director Sales: “While developing the transport system LTplus, Montech devoted great attention to environmental aspects: sustainability and energy efficiency issues have been taken into consideration from the initial product development stages." The development and application of energy-efficient systems is taken for granted at Montech, Aloisi says. In this respect, hardware components are supported by the intelligent, future-oriented control of the Autodrive software.

Simple, time-saving commissioning
Each section of the transport system is assembled, packaged and programmed by Montech using their own components. As a result, the customer only needs to connect the pre-packaged sections, with huge time savings during commissioning.
Also during the planning stage, the user is effectively supported by configuration and simulation tools.

Montech AG markets basic modular components for the automation of demanding transport, assembly and production processes. In addition to conventional conveyor belts, the product range includes automation components and the Quick-Set profile system. A specialist in standard and customized transport and conveyor systems, Montech offers an ideal combination of customer-specific solutions with a high degree of standardization. Founded in 1964, the company is based in Switzerland and stands for innovation in the automation industry.
