CALDAN P&F100 - Power & Free floor conveyor

Power & Free floor conveyor

Caldan P&F100

The flexible floor based Power & Free system with a standard load capacity up to 400 kg. Reliable accumulation and separation of trolley and wagon sets. Smooth trolley transfer by using conventional switching gates without expensive transfer units.

The purpose designed P&F100 combines the flexibility of the overhead power and free conveyors with the stability of conventional skid systems. Ideally suited for painting and assembly processes. No contamination as the work pieces are placed on top of the conveyor system. Manages 30° inclines (depending on work-load).

Noiseless accumulation by means of non friction disengagement of the trolleys from the drive chain. Very compact in design minimizing floor area requirements, restriction to air flow in spray booths etc.

• High stability of unbalanced jigs
• High accuracy of presentation
• Increases production quality
• Reduces product rejection rate

The Power & Free floor conveyor, Type P&F100, consists of three CALDAN profiles. In the lower “Power” profile the cardan chain is driven by one or more drive units. In the upper “Free” profiles the purpose designed trolley and wagon sets are driven by power chain carriers, via pivotal pawls attached to the front and back of the trolley.

The trolley body is made of 5 mm. laser cut and folded plates and is equipped with 4 sealed load carrying wheels and 4 sealed horizontal wheels for side guiding. Both the power chain carrier pitch and the accumulation distance are designed according to customer specification.

Each trolley and wagon set can be separated from the power chain and accumulated in line, 45° or 90° zones. When reaching a closed accumulation stop or when reaching the tail of the previous trolley, the accumulation lever is lowered and the trolley pawl units are lifted.

Conveyance with loads in rise and fall sections is possible due to a uniquely designed link between the chain carriers and the trolley pawls.
