VarioFlow plus: Low-noise conveyor system is easy to configure

Rexroth VarioFlow plus chain conveyor system

The new Rexroth VarioFlow plus chain conveyor system offers simplicity, flexibility and quiet operation.

Save time and money with Rexroth’s flexible VarioFlow plus system

VarioFlow plus is ideal for achieving a fast time-to-market. With the Rexroth flexible chain conveyor system, users can easily configure individual, space-saving solutions for versatile, complex transportation tasks, even for particularly difficult environments.

Rexroth’s VarioFlow plus offers a number of standardized modules covering differing application requirements with maximum interchangeability and modularity. To simplify selection and combination of the modules, Rexroth offers MTpro planning software with Layout Designer. Users can design conveyors and even complex multi-conveyor and workstation systems, select components and output the results to CAD.

Additionally, valuable time can be saved during commissioning. The clever drive solution provides a great degree of planning freedom, and the motor mounting position can be chosen on-site. This reduces the selection of drive variants.

With its low-noise operation, the new chain conveyor system contributes greatly to reduced noise and improved working conditions. Rexroth achieves this level of smooth operation by optimizing the conveyor sliding characteristics and using slide rails with lateral mounting, ensuring less wear and fast, reliable assembly.

The Rexroth VarioFlow plus flexible chain conveyor system features components that can be used universally for all system widths, including the new track width of 120 mm, reducing the need for spare parts. Additionally, the stable chain permits tensile forces up to 1,250 Newtons. The chain surface is nearly closed, allowing even the smallest parts to be transported safely and reliably.

The system offers individual conveyor layouts and comes in six sizes. It has two material options: a basic aluminum version and a stainless steel version for applications with higher hygiene demands. The stainless steel version is ideal for the food industry because Rexroth uses components made of FDA-compliant materials. Alternatively, Rexroth offers a workpiece pallet system suitable for transporting workpiece pallets in the automotive and electronic industries.
