mk has expanded its modular pallet transfer system Versamove standard with a curved module which has an impressive space-saving design that enables 90° and 180° turns in the tightest of spaces.
Versamove is a versatile, high-quality pallet transfer system which can be used in almost all areas of automated production and material flow. Its modular design allows for quick and transparent scheduling and project planning. The system has the flexibility to be expanded or adapted according to conditions on site.
The compact curve is a space-saving module that enables 90° and 180° turns in the tightest of spaces and is available in 240, 320 and 400 mm widths. The pallets are moved along the curve track by round belts. This allows the workpieces to maintain their orientation as they traverse the curve. The cost-effective and compact curved module can be used in place of lifting-traversing units and lifting-rotating units for transfer onto a parallel conveyor line. The curved module is available with its own drive, or it can be operated via the adjoining section.
Advantages of the curved module
- Compact and space-saving design
- 90° and 180° turns in the tightest of spaces while maintaining orientation
- Cost-effective alternative to lifting-traversing units and lifting-rotating units
- It is available with its own drive or it can be driven by the adjoining section
- Particularly suited to parallel conveyor lines that are positioned close to one another (180° turns)
The Versamove system is available in three weight and size classes. The Versamove standard is designed for weights of up to 40 kg per pallet. The Versamove plus can handle dimensions of up to 1040 x 1040 mm and weights of 100 kg. The Versamove ultra can transport pallets with dimensions of up to 1200 x 1200 mm and weights of 300 kg per pallet. The system can therefore be used for a wide variety of application areas. While developing the system, we ensured its compatibility with systems that are currently available on the market. As a result, third-party pallets can be used on the Versamove standard. It is therefore possible to extend existing plants without any issues.
