Quick planning, short-term commissioning, high conveying capacity: The VarioFlow plus chain conveyor system from Bosch Rexroth is optimized for quick assembly while combining particularly low-noise and economical operation. The choice of six conveyor widths between 65 and 320 mm, seven chain types and two models in aluminum and stainless steel with FDA-compliant materials opens up a wide spectrum of applications.

(Charlotte, NC – www.boschrexroth-us.com/VarioFlow )Noise reduction is attracting increasing attention to continuously improve factory work environments. VarioFlow plus is one of Bosch Rexroth’s major contribution to noise reduction, with particularly low-noise operation thanks to sliding bars with lateral fixation, low-friction materials and patented hinge bolts. At the same time, VarioFlow plus provides optimum sliding properties for reduced wear, even with chain tensile forces up to 1,250 Newtons.

An example of VarioFlow plus’s flexible application can be found in the automotive industry: In order to improve handling and save space during transport, an innovative manufacturing cell based on VarioFlow plus is able to convey roof linings at a height of approx. three meters directly to a robotic unit at a processing station. Attaching and uncoupling the finished roof linings are the only manual procedures required in this fully automated solution. This results in increased productivity as factory personnel may use these time savings to complete other tasks. Currently, this automotive manufacturer operates four complete manufacturing lines using the same application of VarioFlow plus.

In combination with the innovative MTpro planning software, VarioFlow plus saves considerable time during project planning. The complete conveyor system can be designed in just a few steps – all the way from “drag and drop” selection of components to order placement, including verification of workpiece carriers and complete system configuration.

The advantages of VarioFlow plus continue once the system has been delivered. Start-up and commissioning are incredibly easy with this user-friendly modular system. Standardized components make the system exceptionally easy and fast to assemble, and ensure functionally safe operation.
