Why Choose the TSplus Conveyor?

The TSplus assembly conveyor is part of the larger family of TS (Transfer Systems) from Bosch Rexroth which include TS1 and TS4plus. Like all TS products, the TSplus is a work-piece pallet based, non-synchronous, conveyor designed to improve manufacturing productivity and product quality while allowing for maximum assembly flexibility. With your choice of 3 different conveying media (belt, flat-top chain, or roller chain) and 26 different pallet sizes, combined with an extensive range of positioning and transfer modules, the TSplus is now the world's leading assembly conveyor.

Why is TSplus Easy to Specify and Use?

All components of theTSplus system are pre-engineered and modular. That means you can mix belt, flat-top chain or roller chain and accessory modules as needs require. The system can be easily expanded, reconfigured or relocated as your needs change. You can phase in your investment as time and budget permit. Start with a simple conveyor for basic assembly and grow into a fully automated, progressive assembly system. As production requirements change, TSplus gives you the flexibility to add manual or automatic workstations.

Modularity also simplifies system design and assembly. As a result, you can be more responsive to changing market demands. Installation and maintenance are also simple - further reducing up-front as well as ongoing costs.

Why is the Workpiece Pallet so Important?

TSplus conveyors transport parts on workpiece pallets. The workpiece pallets (26 sizes, from 160 x 160mm to 1040 x 1040mm) ride on the surface of the conveying medium. This transport method has many advantages for product assembly applications, including:


Pallets can be positioned at workstations to ± 0.05mm (0.002") when used with a Rexroth Lift-Position Unit, permitting precision assembly operations.


Pallets can be tooled with fixtures to secure parts for manual or automated operations. Identification and data carrying devices (used to coordinate assembly sequences, identify model types, etc.) are also commonly mounted to pallets.


Pallets can be stopped on the leading or trailing edge - regardless of pallet orientation on the conveyor. Pallets can also be accumulated in queue and released one at a time.


Exciter plates on the pallet bottom and sides work with conveyor-mounted proximity switches to sense pallet presence. Pallet orientation and routing can be controlled using Rexroth ID/10, ID/15 or ID/40 identification systems.
