The heavy-load shuttle can carry weights up to 80 kg

At Motek 2009 in Stuttgart, Montech is introducing a new generation of shuttles and a heavy-load version, the new TB conveyor family, the Basic belt conveyors and the full range of automation components.

The new-generation shuttles are specifically designed for large-scale intralogistic projects. The shuttles can travel up to 60 m/min and carry heavy weights, while so far speeds up to 30 m/min and loads up to 28 kg were possible.
The shuttle is equipped with a powerful processor like the previous models, with the additional option of wireless communication. “The transfer of large data volumes and direct communications to other systems are no longer a problem, and the RFID interface is even more efficient,” says Yves Dicke, Montrac Division Manager of Montech.

Shuttle for heavy loads
For loads up to 80 kg, a so-called heavy-weight shuttle has been developed and will be exhibited at Motek. The new shuttle has reinforced carriage and profiles and runs at controlled speed. For higher loads, Montech has created a trailer for the shuttle, while weights up to 50 kg can be carried directly on the shuttle. “Thanks to the monorail, also the version for heavy loads ensures maximum accuracy and efficient application,” adds Dicke.

New belt conveyors, more stable and sturdy
In the TB belt conveyors, the covers of chains and pinions, so far made of plastic, have been replaced with a new aluminum cover. The drive rollers are protected by a rear cover that prevents the penetration of dirt and dust. “The new TB series of belt conveyors is more stable and sturdy”, says Gianluca Aloisi, Conveyors Division Manager, Montech. Also accessing the conveyors for maintenance operations is easier and more efficient, thanks to the reduction of locking screws and the use of quick closures. Another enhancement is the sliding sheet metal plate that can be simply pushed downwards. This avoids dirt and particles falling off the belt and reaching into the conveyor.

Six different frame widths
The TB belt conveyors are available with six frame widths, from 60 to 250 mm, and can be ordered with single or double belt. The drive unit can be installed horizontally or vertically, in any position along the entire free length of the frame. The 230/400V motor allows to reach belt speeds from 0.6 to 38.4 m/min. According to the application, the TB belt can carry weights above 100 kg.

Basic belt conveyor
Latest news from Montech includes the Basic model added to the range of belt conveyors. These new belts have limited functionality, for instance only four speeds can be set. The Basic conveyors are available with drives installed at the end or in the middle, and frame widths between 45 and 800 mm. “The Basic belts are like high-end cars without options like heated seats, navigator or sunroof,” says Aloisi. With this product, according to Aloisi, Montech delivers high-quality belt conveyors in the lower price range.

Automation components, high flexibility
Users can achieve high flexibility with the electrified automation components: grippers, rotary drives, universal compact slides and Servoline. In electric grippers, the gripping strength and speed can be adjusted independently. The electrically operated rotary drive DAE-60 can move into different positions (up to 31 programmable positions), traveling at different speeds between one position and another. All electrified handling components can be driven by the same regulation device. The preset settings of the regulation device provide for very easy and quick commissioning. In addition, the digital I/Os allow very easy control.

In the stand No. 1170 in Hall 1, over a 180-square-meter surface, Montech will exhibit the latest news, the full range of belt conveyors and most automation components.

Montech AG markets basic modular components that automate demanding production and logistics processes. In addition to conventional conveyor belts, automation components and the Quick-Set profile system, the range of products also includes the Montrac transport system. Montrac is an intelligent transport system for networking industrial production and logistics processes. Founded in 1963, the company is based in Switzerland and stands for innovation in the automation industry.
