Products have to be packaged ever faster and at lower cost. Individualized products and small batch sizes require a high degree of flexibility. In addition, space is often a scarce commodity in production. With the VarioFlow plus chain conveyor system, Bosch Rexroth supplies an essential component for flexible and economical transport within a plant. It conveys packed and unpacked goods vertically and horizontally in the smallest possible space. Together with the spiral transport system from smartPac Srl, this results in a continuous transport system with low commissioning and maintenance costs.
Modular solutions for material flow such as the VarioFlow plus chain conveyor system can be adapted to a wide variety of specifications. Users can also make adjustments on site in production. Products are safely transported, distributed and brought together with the solution. The chain conveyor system also transports different types of packaging in all packaging stages in the tightest of spaces and with minimal friction, safely, quickly and without disruption. The modular system allows a wide range of combination options. The comprehensive product range includes versions made of aluminum and stainless steel as well as FDA-compliant materials.
Spiral transport system for space-saving goods transport
The spiral transport system from smartPac Srl is based on components from the VarioFlow modular system and thus offers an integrated system solution for the space-saving and efficient transport of goods. It enables vertical product transport and serves as a buffer store in the smallest possible space. The spiral transport system offers chain widths between 80 and 320 mm and can overcome height differences of up to 3000 mm between infeed and discharge. Depending on the product to be conveyed, inclines of 5 to 12 ° and speeds of 5 to 60 m/min are possible. Users can commission and maintain it with little effort and at low cost.
"We chose the VarioFlow components because of their quality and adaptability to our spiral transport system," summarizes Sandro Turbine, sales manager at smartPac. "Together with Bosch Rexroth, we thus offer our customers the best components and solution system." The Italian smartPac Srl has been a partner company for many years and is now also a certified Certified Excellence (CE) Partner of Bosch Rexroth.
