LOGO!MAT L - Series: Elevators


Elevators are standard components in some conveyor systems and they allow a high degree of flexibility in line layouts. An over-under configuration of conveyors saves expensive floor space and makes it possible to create pallet buffers or bottom pallet return spurs.

All elevators need to be guarded, and outer guarding is not part of our scope of supply because every company has different guarding requirements. Nevertheless, we do offer safety concepts and safety devices that include mechanical return locks, different sensor configurations and smart control concepts. Please ask our Sales Team for further information.

Different applications lead to different elevator concepts. LOGOMAT automation systems, Inc. selected the three most economic and efficient types and offers them in different varieties as standard components. The following matrix should help when comparing and selecting the right elevator for your application.

LOGO!MAT Table Elevator


Table elevatorThe Table Elevator is a cost efficient solution to change the conveyor level within a 300 mm range within one line quickly. Not all conveyor systems can use one top of roller height throughout the line and the Table Elevator is a great unit to use in that case. The pneumatic unit comes fully assembled with a separately driven conveyor section mounted on top and it just needs sensors and controls. We can take care of the complete controls if you decide using our unique, cost effective and powerful LOGO!MAT ITB Controls Concept. An optional rod lock unit can be used for adding a safety feature to the unit.

 

 

LOGO!MAT Crank-Arm Elevator


Crank arm elevatorThe LOGO!MAT Crank-Arm Elevator enables the customer to connect two different conveyor levels, which is mainly used for the LOGO!MAT Over-Under Conveyors.

The crank-arm geometry makes the elevator acceleration and deceleration even if the motor turns the same speed. The stopping action doesn't need to be very accurate as there is little vertical movement of the track in its end position. The robust design can be used for all conveyor width and up to the pallet weight of 550 lbs. (250 kg).

Roller switches limit the up / down movement and an overrun protection switch gets hard-wired to the motor to avoid damages and overrun problems. The switches are not part of the scope of supply but can be added per request, or with using our LOGO!MAT ITB Control Concept.

 

LOGO!MAT Tooth Belt Elevator


Lifts of up to 5,000 mm (16 feet), traveling speeds of 0.5 - 1 m/sec and Multi-level Buffers (more than two conveyor levels) can be realized with the LOGO!MAT Tooth Belt Elevator because it can stop at almost any intermediate level.

The dual capability allows raising and lowering pallets at the same time and cutting the cycle time down. The tooth belt drive consists of a geared drive motor and two parallel running tooth belts. The moving conveyor track is guided by linear guide rails that allow for high precision and good support even for heavy weights. The two tooth belts guarantee a high operational safety because both belts are laid out to carry the full load. Different drive motor options can be chosen to adapt the behavior of the elevator to your needs. An upper and lower roller limit switch should be installed to control the travel. Mechanical pallet return locks are optionally available and we are more than happy to support you in working out a full safety concept for such an elevator application. Tooth Belt Elevators need to be guarded and outer guarding is not part of our scope of supply because every company has different guarding requirements.
