Roller transfers integrate roller conveyors with chain conveyors. Transport lines with roller transfers enable changes of the direction in which goods are transported by 90 degrees while also changing the relative position of pallets at the same time. The role of a roller transfer is to collect an item from one line and transfer it to the other perpendicular line. It can operate in one of the two modes:
- a load comes from a roller conveyor via the transfer to a chain conveyor, or
- a reverse system - from a chain conveyor to a roller conveyor.
Examples of implementations:
For our regular client, a Polish leader in pharmaceutical industry, we created a transportation system for plastic pallets and interlocking containers with a base typical for EUR pallets. Installation is located in new production and warehouse facility near Warsaw and is a part of complex logistics equipment supplied by PROMAG S.A.
Transport system in this realization is an introduction to the extended automatic pallet storage system, which PROMAG S.A. implemented for a dairy customer. An innovative system AutoMAG Mover was used here, which fully excludes the participation of man in the process of loading and unloading the rack.
Another comprehensive project provided by PROMAG comprised a transport system for standard 800x1200mm euro pallets and 900x1200mm pallets of a standard euro pallet design. The line included roller and chain conveyors, chain transfers, two vertical conveyors and turntables. Additionally, we also supplied our AutoMAG dense storage system.
Container transport system provided for an e-commerce company in 2016. Designed and implemented by PROMAG S.A. the system uses the following devices: driven roller conveyors, gravity roller conveyors and curve roller conveyors. In addition, the system uses belt conveyors, including inclined ones and roller transfers.
A comprehensive handling system for transporting mattresses alone as well as for mattresses placed on pallets. Transport in the production hall and the warehouse.
An automated system for transporting and palletising products using industrial robots, and a system for transporting full pallets, including a transfer through a cooling tunnel, final stretch wrapping and labelling on both sides of each pallet.
A pallet transport system for a dairy plant. Vertical conveyors and horizontal conveyors are used to transport pallets in a cooling tunnel and a hot tunnel.
PROMAG S.A provided this pallet transport system in 2013. The system included a number of devices operating together in an automatic mode. The equipment used included roller and chain conveyors, roller transfers, a pallet magazine and a single-column vertical conveyor.
A system for transporting refrigerators and casings designed by PROMAG S.A. in 2011 is a complex combination of many devices such as roller and chain conveyors, a number of chain and roller transfers and turntables. Additionally, vertical conveyors were also used in the system.
A system for transporting finished products provided in 2006 to one of the Poland’s largest manufacturers of household appliances. The system delivered by PROMAG is responsible for transporting refrigerators and uses roller and belt conveyors, transfers, turntables, scissor lifts and a single-column vertical conveyor.
Another pallet transport system from PROMAG S.A. - this time on considerable distances. In this system, pallets needed to be transferred effectively between a production building and a warehouse. A number of devices were used for this purpose such as roller and chain conveyors, roller turntables and roller transfers. Because of the area, a significant part of the system was installed on a support structure.
