The friction clutch is a safety element and has to be adjusted properly to ensure operator safety. It gets pre-configured by LOGOMAT automation systems, Inc. before delivery. If further adjustments are necessary, please check the operating requirements first. A clutch that has been set too strong may lead to a mechanical overloading of the diverter drive and must be be avoided.
You can find more information in the documentation of the friction clutch.
To adjust the friction clutch, please proceed as follows:
  1. Disconnect the electrical and pneumatic supply of the entire conveyor system and secure against reconnection.
  2. Remove the plastic safety cover from underneath to get free access to the friction clutch.
  3. Remove the locking bolt of the friction clutch that the adjusting nut can be turned.
  4. Tighten the adjusting nut by one increment. (Overlay the marks.)
    The friction clutch is not infinitely variable. However, it should be adjusted so the two corner element can be stopped easily by hand manually during operation and movement.
  5. Tighten the locking bolt and make sure that the mark ups match and the holes align.
