LOGO!MAT XL Twin Strand - Series: Stop Unit


stop-unit

The solid and pneumatically operated LOGO!MAT XL Stop Unit is designed to arrest heavy duty pallets in specific locations. This unit is also used in the LOGO!MAT XL Twin Strand Conveyor System. The pallets push against the pneumatically controlled stop pin with their stop inserts on the bottom side of the pallet. An escapement mechanism prevents the pallet from bouncing and being manually pushed backwards. An internal cylinder in the stop block pulls the pallet after the cushion motion consistently to one defined end position to create an accuracy of +/- 1.5 mm for heavy duty pallets.

This controlled pulling of the pallet is done automatically and does not need to be controlled separately. In its home position the stop pin is always extended - even in case of a failure of the pneumatic system all pallets are stopped safely. To release a pallet, the stop pin is pneumatically retracted. As soon as the pallet is released and the pallet present sensor loses its signal the stop pin can extend again. That allows staging several pallets with just one stop unit. This unit can also be used for accumulation: up to seven pallets or 2,200 lbs. (1,000 kg) can be stopped in a row.

Like every other component of the LOGO!MAT XL or XL Twin Strand Transfer System our Stop Unit contributes to the high flexibility of the system. It is delivered as a complete pre-assembled and adjusted unit including sensor brackets, covers, mounting clamps and sensors as an option. The unit can be located in nearly any location of the roller conveyor with no limits by the roller location.

All rollers are configured around the Stop Unit. Replacing a Stop Unit can be done easily in a few minutes. (Please ask about our refurbish program.) Depending on the conveyor width, the pallet weight, the conveyor speed and the type of application, the Stop Unit can be adjusted in the cushion behavior.
