||Mesh Chain Conveyor:This is an open
frame mesh chain conveyor. It can be built in mild or stainless steel.
There are a variety of chain options including plastic, stainless or
mild steel. Its applications include food handling, drying applications,
cooling applications, or parts washing applications.
Stainless Platen Loop Conveyor:
loop was designed for a company that produced T.V. dinners. A tray was
placed on positioning pins on the platen, it traveled around the loop,
and had product placed in it at each filling station. Leeds can build
custom systems to satisfy any individual processing need.
||Static Conductive Belt Conveyor: This
conveyor is specially designed to make sure the static conducted through
the belt is grounded through the bed (Not all slide beds conduct away
the static. Some are insulated by their paint.) Static build up can
cause problems for products such as circuit boards and for equipment
like print heads.
Rotary accumulators will accumulate product without the back pressure of
normal accumulating conveyors. Rotary unscamblers will take groups of
round products and discharge them in single file. Unscramblers are used
in filling, washing, weighing, inspecting, counting & packaging.
||Product Inspection Conveyors:This
system uses a vibratory hopper to spread a thin layer of product across
a slow moving belt or chain conveyor. This allows an operator to inspect
each item efficiently. Each unit is designed to meet the requirements of
the customer and work with the particular attributes of the product.
||Mattop Chain Conveyors: Mattop
chain, unlike belt conveyors, can be very wide without needing to be
correspondingly long. Belt tracking isn't an issue since the chains run
on sprockets. This makes them good multi-lane conveyors. Their low
coefficient of friction makes them good accumulating conveyors as well.
||Ergonomic Case Packing Station:
These stations accumulate product on the upper conveyor providing a
smooth ergonomic motion when moving the product to the empty case. The
case is then closed and pushed onto the lower conveyor where it is sent
to a case taper. Cases can also be conveyed in from an automatic case
erector in more automated environments.
||Multi-Strand Conveyors:This type of
conveyor is helpful in conveying odd shaped products. It can use "O"
ring, chains, or "V" belts running in tracks to support
products for such applications as bottom labeling, assembly, filling
applications, accumulation or just conveying product from one point to
||Platen Conveyors:Metal, Wood, or
Plastic platens are driven on heavy-duty roller chain to provide a "moving
work bench". This provides a steady surface for hammering, drilling
and heavy assembly work. Fixtures can be attached to the platen to hold
the product firmly in place through the assembly process. The picture
shown is a drive and tail section with some platens removed. Using
heavy-duty roller chain allows for very long assembly lines and for
heavy products to be conveyed.
||Special Fixture Conveyors: Leeds
can custom design, form, or machine special fixtures which can be
attached to belts or chains. These fixtures would be designed to hold
the customer's product securely in place through a special process or
from machine to machine. The conveyors can be mild or stainless steel
and the fixtures can be mild or stainless steel, plastic, rubber,
fiberglass or wood. This type of conveyor is useful in assembly,
labeling, printing, filling, machining, etc.
||Tilt Tables: These tables can be
pneumatically or manually operated. They provide an ergonomic case
placement for packaging applications or for feeding product to an
assembly line. The table itself can be constructed from mild or
stainless steel, plastic or roller or chain conveyors. These units can
be fed from powered roller, gravity roller, belt, table top or mattop
chain conveyors. They can also be supplied with automatic discharges
using pneumatic pusher arms.
||Special Cleated Belt Inclines:
Leeds designs and builds all sorts of special cleated belt conveyors.
The belts can be simple rubber belts, food grade belts, or plastic
belts. The cleats come in a variety of heights and styles including all
kinds of cupped and finger cleats. Leeds also has developed a nose over
for cleated belts. This avoids the problem of elevating the product more
than necessary to get correct distance for discharge. These units can
also include infeed or discharge chutes.
