The maintenance and inspection work listed below is to be carried out at the listed intervals to keep the warranty and to follow up constantly if the LOGO!MAT Component is working well. Any defects found must be documented and fixed before operating again. All time specifications are based on single-shift operations.

With an interval of one (1) month the following preservative maintenance should be carried out:
  1. Check all parts for wear and damages
  2. Clean the guide shafts (from soiling)
  3. Visual check of the unit...

The pneumatic installation of the Lift & Locate Unit has to be done according to the pneumatic diagram to ensure the correct operation of the unit. The supplied air fittings are designed for 6 mm air tubing. The supplied compressed air must be dried and filtered and the pressure must be set in the defined range.
 
Flow controls should be used to adjust the lift and lowering motion of the unit.
 
A clamping unit has to be installed directly to the main air supply to ensure an immediate reaction to a pressure loss. This unit shouldn’t be used for holding the Lift Locate in a certain position; it is just a safety feature.
 
The integrated and installed LOGO!MAT Cushioned Stop Unit...

Sensors have to be installed in the provided brackets. The wires have to be protected against chafing and secured against unintentional removal. Please pay attention to the correct switching distance and the right sensor size.
 
The control of the sensors and the used logic can influence the function of the Lift & Locate Unit tremendously. This is the responsibility of the operating company.
 
The integrated and installed LOGO!MAT Cushioned Stop Unit has to be equipped with sensors according to the stop unit documentation.
 
To operate the Lift & Locate Unit as safely as possible, please comply with the following information!

To install the Lift & Locate Unit into the LOGO!MAT Roller Conveyor, please proceed as follows:
  1. Define the area where the Lift & Locate Unit should be installed. Replace all full rollers with stub rollers in this area. (See the documentation of the Roller Conveyor for detailed installation operation steps.) The stub rollers on the driven side have to be installed with 68 mm spacing; on the non-driven side a spacing of 136 mm is sufficient. In oily conditions, we do suggest using a cross drive to drive both sides of the stub rollers for a better pallet departure.
    The required stub rollers are not part of the delivery. They have to be ordered separately in case of a component order.
  2. Mount...
