All-Flex Conveyors

SRS Conveyors manufacturer of the All-Flex Enclosed Track Conveyors are designed and built on the principles of increasing productivity, reliability, flexibility and simple installations. The All-Flex handles up to 50 lbs from a single pendant which are spaced every 6” centres. Two pendants with a load bar allow up to 100 lb loads. Distributed loads to 30,000 lbs can be conveyed on a 600 ft. system with only a single drive unit. Let All-Flex Conveyors provide solutions for your simple or complex material handling applications.

TAKE-UP:

ake-ups are required on every system to compensate for chain wear and expansion of system if operating in dry-off and bake ovens. The two most common operating styles are air cylinder and automatic spring.
Standard 12″ radius x 6 1/2″ travel units are stocked.
Available in other radii & travel on special order.

SPROCKET TAKE-UPS:

8 tooth & 6 tooth idler sprocket take-ups are available in air & spring styles.

HORIZONTAL SPROCKET TURNS:

When the conveyor layout requires track horizontal turns less than 12″ radius (24″ diameter) sprocket turns should be considered to reduce the resultant chain pull and wear on the track radius and the side guide rollers on the chain.

Sprocket hubs can be supplied using conventional needle bearing or carbon bushing for oven applications of up to 500° F.

HORIZONTAL TRACK TURNS:

This top view illustration shows how the chain passes around the curve. The lateral wheels ride on the side of the track, which guides the chain smoothly around a horizontal turn without the use of special guides, traction wheels or roller turns. All horizontal curves are heat treated to rockwell 35 to 40 “C” scale for long life.

BRUSH TYPE CHAIN LUBRICATOR:

There are two models available, auto shut-off solenoid or manual on-off control. Due to the small quantities of oil required for enclosed track conveyors, timer controlled units are recommended for precise application of oil. Manually controlled lubricators are available but not recommended unless continuous lubrication is desired. Pre-mounted to standard track section.

allflex_brush_type_chain_oilers

AUTOMATIC LUBRICATOR:

The automatic lubricator is designed to deliver precise oil to the chain pins and wheels. It is pneumatically operated and electrically controlled for complete automatic operation.

S-100 Storage & Retrieval Controller
Significantly minimize your retrieval time by entering multiple desired locations on the S-100 Controller which in turn will prioritize the queue and take the shortest path. The S-100 has all the advanced features that you require and can also be fully integrated with software systems.

S-200 Sorting Controller
The All-Flex S-200 Sorting Controller has the capacity to sort 10,000 garments/products per hour and sorting capabilities of unlimited drops. The method of identifying includes bar code, RF chips, dedicated or visual creating minimal to no human garment/product interventions in the sorting process. Each garment/product is then monitored until it reaches it final designated drop line.

S-300/400 Power and Free Controller
SRS All-Flex S-300/400 Power and Free Controller allow individual trolleys to divert and accumulate on free rail systems. The S-400 will reload the selected rail along with the number of trolleys for that particular line back onto the All-Flex power conveyor. With SRS traffic logic controllers S300/400 coupled with a gravity/free rail system allows you to maximize your overhead storage, reduce your footprint, minimize power requirement and conveyor costs.

S-500 Production Counting Controller
No longer do you have to calculate the totals at the end of the day to see if your operator is working at peak efficiency. With the interactive menus you can see if your operator is accomplishing your targets. The S-500 is fully expandable and each station on the conveyor line counts as if it was the only unit there. The operator is provided with real time data so they can gauge their own performance. A data lock is provided so that critical information can be controlled.

S-600 Assembly/Kitting Controller
The S-600 Auto Assembly/Kitting Controller automatically sorts for the purpose of picking or assembling product orders in an effortless manner. Using only one operator, products can be assembled at a rate of 500 per hour by having the conveyor move via the S-600 instead of the operator. Designed with a micro-processor the S-600 Auto Assembly/Kitting Controller integrates with most inventory/POS software systems and makes operating and installation a breeze.
