Chain Conveyor System VarioFlow plus

Powerful, standardised and versatile conveyor system for use in the food & packaging industries, health care, assembly lines, the automotive & electronics industries, or the interlinking of machines.

The modular system of the Rexroth VarioFlow plus chain conveyor system consists of universally usable components for all system widths. This reduces the parts that must be stocked by the user.

The stable chain permits tensile forces of up to 1250 N. The chain surface is nearly closed, allowing even the smallest of parts to be transported safely and reliably. The concept for individual section routing comprises the sizes 65, 90, 120, 160, 240, and 320 in two materials: the basic aluminium version and the stainless steel version for applications with higher hygiene requirements, such as in the food industry. For this, Rexroth uses components made of FDA-compliant materials.

Alternatively, Rexroth offers a workpiece pallet system suitable for transporting workpieces in the automotive and electronic industries.

Variants

VarioFlow plus Aluminium system (AL)

  • Fixing of slide rails without rivets or the need to machine the track bearing surfaces
  • Minimum number of slide rail interruptions
  • FDA-compliant, low-friction materials for components subject to constant friction
  • Standardised components that can be used universally
  • Continuous product range in the sizes 65, 90, 120, 160, 240, 320
  • Economical section routing for a wide range of applications in the automotive and electronics industries, machine interlinking, or in the areas of food & packaging and health & care

VarioFlow plus Stainless steel system (STS)

  • Fixing of slide rails without rivets or the need to machine the track bearing surfaces
  • Minimum number of slide rail interruptions
  • FDA-compliant, low-friction materials for components subject to constant friction
  • Standardised components that can be used universally
  • Continuous product range in the sizes 65, 90, 120, 160, 240, 320
  • FDA-compliant materials and easy-to-clean surfaces fulfil the high standards in the areas of the food & packaging and health & care industries where hygiene is crucial

VarioFlow plus ESD system

  • Components and parts suitable for use in an EPA (ESD Protected Area – electrostatic sensitive area)
  • Conductive components
  • Dissipative connection technology
  • Size: 65 and 90
  • Max. speed: 30 m/min
  • Max. chain tensile force: 600 N

Wedge Conveyor

A wedge conveyor is always used if the conveyed product

  • Cannot be transported vertically on a standard conveyor due to its design
  • Cannot manage steep vertical inclines (> 30°) due to the position of its centre of gravity
  • Could be damaged by lateral or upper guides due to its sensitive surfaces
  • Must not slide on a 90° incline or decline section (as would happen with a cleated chain system, for example)
  • Conveying is to be carried out without special sequencing

A wedge conveyor has two conveyors arranged in parallel to each other which can be quickly set at variable widths by means of the adjustment unit (AL).

Workpiece Pallet System (WT)

  • Numerous components for WT control, such as a diverter, stopper, positioning unit, etc.
  • Selection of wear pads with different materials
  • Compatible with the ID 15 identification system
  • Secure transport of parts thanks to the modular design with comprehensive additional components
