The Lift & Locate Unit is pre-adjusted before delivery. Precise adjustments have to be done with the pallet and its work piece together, and by adjusting the flat index pin to get the pallet properly supported.

Lift Locate Adjustments of flat index pin 1 2

 
To adjust the flat index pin, please proceed as follows:
  1. Disconnect the electrical and pneumatic supply of the entire conveyor system and secure against reconnection.
  2. Loosen the set screw.

  3. Screw the flat index pin in or out according to the needed adjustments (with suitable tools). The index pin is pre-tensioned by spring washers to avoid self turning.

  4. Push the pallet including the work piece manually above the Lift & Locate Unit, lift the pallet with the unit and check if the pallet has solid support from the indexing plate.
  5. If the position is well defined, remove the pallet of the Lift & Locate Unit and tighten the set screw to secure the rest position.
    If not, please adjust the heights again and follow steps 4 and 5 until the pallet sits properly on the index pins.

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 a 57 mm spacing; on the non-driven side a spacing of 114 mm is sufficient.
    The required stub rollers are not part of the delivery. They have to be ordered separately in case of a component order.
  2. Remove the mounting clamps on one side of the base plate and loosen the remaining clamps.
  3. Mount the entire Lift & Locate Unit [from below] with the remaining mounting clamps into the inner, lower slot of the conveyor bottom rail extrusion and reattach the removed mounting clamps loosely, that the unit hangs in the frame.
    Pay attention that the direction of the conveyor flow (information on the drive station) and the arrow of the stop unit match.
  4. Tighten the mounting clamps that the unit is attached to the conveyor safely.
  5. Push an empty pallet into the cushioned stop unit until the return stop is locked.
  6. Check the stop position of the pallet. Make sure that the stop unit has reached its mechanical forward end position.
  7. Connect the six mounting clamps of the Lift & Locate Unit to the conveyor.
    The mounting clamps have to be locked into the extrusion correctl, to avoid any movement of the unit.
  8. Check for sufficient clearance of the horizontal stop movement manually and adjust the roller configuration if needed to avoid any pinch points or collisions with the rollers.
  9. Supply the pneumatic and electrical connections according to the wiring diagrams.
  10. Check and test the function of the entire Lift & Locate Unit.

LOGO!MAT XL - Series: Lift & Locate Unit

LOGO!MAT XL - Series: Lift & Locate Unit

XL Lift  LocateThe LOGO!MAT XL Lift & Locate Unit enables pallet location precisely within ± 0.1 mm in x-, y- and z-direction. The XL Lift & Locate Unit includes a standardized pneumatic cushioned LOGO!MAT XL Stop Unit mounted on the same base plate as the entire Lift & Locate Unit to archieve a defined and set distance between the stop unit and the indexing pins. This allows moving and installing the Lift & Locate Unit easily in almost every location in the entire conveyor system – with no adjustment work involved. Placing this component in an existing conveyor is also no problem and the mechanical work gets completed within less than one hour.

For precision positioning of the pallet, the pallet is stopped above the indexing plate and lifted pneumatically through close tolerance indexing bushings. Two index pins engage into the hardened index bushing on the bottom side of the pallet skid so that the pallet is located and positioned accurately. By actively pushing against a defined hard stop, we archieve additional stiffness for supporting heavy duty pallets while enabling a high degree of accuracy. The standard lift of the pallet is just 3 mm above the roller level, but strokes up to 350 mm can be realized on request.

The LOGO!MAT XL Lift & Locate Unit is always configured for the maximum pallet weight of 1,300 lbs. (600 kg) for the XL Roller Conveyor plus a safety factor; however, operations with a high torque or high forces have to be avoided. In this case, the pallet needs to be supported in a different way.

The operational safety of the LOGO!MAT Lift & Locate Unit can be improved by using an optional separate clamping unit. This unit can also be retrofitted later on. Safety covers are standardized for the mechanics to protect it against dirt or outside influences, or secure it against reaching into. The Lift & Locate Unit is also optionally available with RFID Reader provisions that are designed for read / write operations in all possible station conditions. All sensor brackets are included and sensors or readers can be supplied on request.

The strong and robust LOGO!MAT XL Lift & Locate Unit is an efficient component to equip automatic stations in heavy duty applications.

The LOGO!MAT Lift & Locate Unit enables pallet location precisely within ± 0.05 mm in x-, y- and z-direction. The Lift & Locate Unit includes a standardized pneumatic LOGO!MAT Stop Unit mounted on the same base plate as the entire Lift & Locate Unit to archieve a defined and set distance between the stop unit and the indexing pins. This allows moving and installing the Lift & Locate Unit easily in almost every location in the entire conveyor system – with no adjustment work involved.
