Among the countless material-handling solutions available from Norpak Handling Ltd. is its line of telescopic conveyor systems, which are popular in large facilities that ship out or receive products and parts directly, as they help to streamline collection and delivery processes. Designed to automate the process of loading and unloading goods safely, telescopic conveyors offer numerous advantages to those who invest in them, with their numerous features and by covering different applications.
Boost versatility and efficiency
These conveyors get their name from their design, with concentric tubular sections built to slide into each other, so each conveyor can change its length via the extension or retraction or the telescopic slides. Telescopic conveyors can be extended into inbound or outbound trailers for loading and unloading tasks. This eliminates the labour-intensive manual transfer of items between conveyors and trucks.
Users can incline or decline the typical telescopic conveyor, which consists of a fixed part and a telescopic part. The fixed part is connected to the rest of the system, while the telescopic part is left at the ends of the system. These conveyors move items by belt and are usually mobile, so they can be moved and fixed onto the ends of different systems.
One innovative telescopic option is the MaxxReach conveyor, which comes with variable fixed drive systems and controls that boost versatility and efficiency. Available from Norpak, this conveyor features VFD-controlled belt drive systems for smooth transitions from belt starts and stops, variable belt speeds of up to 120 feet per minute, VFD-controlled extension drives for smooth extension and retraction, load capacity of 50 pounds per foot, maximum live load of 4,000 pounds, emergency stops at control panels, and extension stop bars for the last stage.
These features all help to optimize the benefits and function of the telescopic design by enhancing both automation and user flexibility. The user can customize some of the key features of the MaxxReach, such as its variable belt speeds and VFD controls, for even higher functionality, and this customization puts all power in the hands of the operator.
