Automation

2-Way Distribution Systems

Pneumatic see-sawing, reversible conveyor belts or two-way switches can be used both for quality assurance and for automation goals.

QA points can, for example, be installed directly in the output shaft of an injection moulding machine to sort sprues or reject pieces.

By contrast, two-way distribution switches serve for alternate-sided filling of two containers and thus present - often in combination with a counter control - a buffer solution.

The design with regard to material, dimensions, controller configuration, bases or machine connections always depends on the specific task at hand.

Multi-Level Conveyor Belts and Lift Systems

Ever more frequently, the space available for finishing operations comes to a bottleneck. Apart from an increase in the productivity of the machines and the personnel, the surfaces must be used ever more efficiently.

Multi-Level conveyor belts, in part also in connection with automatic lift systems, offer here the ideal solution for unmanned buffering of a larger production amount - e.g. in the framework of a night shift or weekend production.

The systems are specifically designed and constructed for the task at hand in order to enable an optimal fit with available infrastructure and output.

Unmanned shifts or weekend use is possible in many production plants only with the appropriate buffer technology. Since the available space is often very limited, stacked belt systems with lifts offer an ideal use of space.

  • Length and width of the buffering belts as well as lifting height of the lifts individually adaptable
  • Control systems with Siemens S7 controls are specifically adapted for the customer
  • Two lifts for complete circulation use possible
  • Modular construction for quick start-up

For the buffering of individual pieces that are deposited on conveyor belts by an outtake handling, a simple stacked belt system recommends itself as a cost-effective alternative to similar lift systems.

Depending on the desired degree of complexity, different control concepts and interfaces with production machines or to the handling can be realised.

  • Three separate small controllers (digital cycle switching devices) for the conveyors
  • Belt dump buttons for manual control of piece removal
  • Sensors according to customer requirements
  • Interface to the parent robot controller
  • Connection to emergency stop circuits

Directly from the production machine into the packaging and into intermediate storage. This requirement can be met with individually planned material flow systems from MTF Technik. With the help of a count controller, the containers are filled with exact piece counts and thus stand ready for further processing or for direct shipping to customers.

  • Four multi-story belt systems, each with a lift and four or five buffer levels for uptake of max. 96 cartons per system
  • Connects over the fire protection walls
  • Integrated rotary distributor for interchangeable filling of two containers that constantly stand parallel on the stacked belts
  • Large buffer capacity (ca. 55m2) per lift system.

Linear Buffer

Any time when, for example, containers need to be filled and buffered directly at the production machine, linear box storage is ideal. Especially when the production machines stand parallel to each other and there is relatively little space in the width, the narrow systems come into use.

The control of the box buffers depends on the individual application. So, for example, the container exchange can take place after an adjustable time or be controlled by a counting of machine impulses. Likewise, additional separation and counting systems or a counting of pieces by integrated weighing modules are possible.

Modular-constructed systems - also in combination with roller conveyors - enable versatile usage possibilities at different production machines.

Type GL-LD 010 Special and Type GL-HM 140

With many stamped or bent pieces (e.g., springs), the bulk cone formation in the containers to be filled presents a problem because the available volume can often be used only incompletely due to piece interlocking. Here linearly shiftable feed belts in combination with multiple pre-cycling container belts offer an ideal solution to reach the most even distribution possible of products in the container.

  • Filling belt pneumatically positionable in the lateral axis over the buffer containers
  • Frequently pausing container belt
  • Roller conveyor with end stop at conveyor end
  • Control with Siemens S7 controller

Multi-Linea

In many production processes, the available space increasingly becomes a problem. The move to automatised, unmanned production and the associated temporary material buffering provide lean solutions.

Here the Multi-Linea from MTF Technik offers the optimal solution. Depending on the design, cartons, boxes or bags can be automatically filled and then buffered.

The Multi-Linea consists of a ground plate with uptake vehicle for containers or bags. Because of the narrow drive concept, a very good use of space can be achieved with this system.

Especially when the space available is narrow but relatively long, the Multi-Linea can show its strengths.

Parallel Buffer with Pneumatic Shifting Unit

The parallel buffer with shifting unit serves the space-saving buffering of containers on two parallel, counter-run transporting conveyor belts.

Empty containers are carried forward on the first belt to the filling position and then moved parallel onto the second belt.

Depending on the task, one shifting unit can be used to create a U-shaped material flow or two units to create a complete circulation of the containers.

Especially with complete circulation, this system provides a very good use of space.

With the use of only one shifting unit, the return transport can also optionally be accomplished with a roller bed.

The containers stand on a sliding plate directly above the floor. Therefore the box changer can be installed below e.g. very low machine discharge conveyors (e.g. with ARBURG injection moulding machines) or below discharge chutes of selection switches.

Roller Conveyors

Roller conveyors have many uses in internal logistics. Especially at the end of buffer lines they offer the advantage of collecting the goods to be transported without additional sensors and controls and, for example, providing a place for manual inspection.

Depending on the situation, the frames are made of steel or stainless steel (e.g. for clean room applications) and rollers of PVC, steel, aluminium or stainless steel.

The length, width and roller distribution are adapted to the applicable requirements.

Accumulation Tables

Round tables are used for the short-term storage of materials of different types. They are, for example, often found behind packaging machines when bags must subsequently be packed by hand.

They can likewise serve as an intermediate buffer between two processing steps.


MTF Technik Fördertechnik - Accumulation Tables

Accumulation Tables

Accumulation Tables

Behind a bag packing machine, packaged food products are to be moved to a manual packing station. Since the workers at the packing stations also carry out logistical tasks, overproduced amounts must in the meantime be carefully buffered for a short time. The products should not fall against each other and should be tendered to the workers ergonomically for further processing.

Shifting Buffer

Shifting buffers are used in places where the containers to be filled remain stationary. Especially with small buffer amounts for which a multi-story belt system in combination with a lift unit does not make sense, the shifting buffers offer an exceptionally efficient and compact solution.

Depending on the task, the systems can also be designed for use in the clean room. Smooth surfaces and the use of stainless steel and anodized aluminium in combination with high-quality belt materials prevent wear and particle emissions.
