In a P&F loop, the transport units must be able to travel to several points of loading, unloading, storage or treatment. In order to change direction, switches are installed to create a network. The centralized automation controls the switch in order to direct the transport units in the required direction.
Switches can divert the movement to the right or to the left:
|Payload in the switch junction||1000 kg maximum|
|Direction of the switch junction||
Straight and left
Straight and right
|Travel speed of the transport unit in the switch||18 m/min maximum|
|Time to change position||2 seconds|
|Stop accuracy||+/- 1 mm|
|Surface treatment||Painted or galvanized|
|Option||Remote mechanical actuation to allow switch operation in high temperature zones.|
Reliable, our switch junctions for P&F work in the most intense conditions. They are suitable for all types of logistics.
