Automated Take-Away Conveyors for Extruded Products

Conair MTAC Series take–away conveyors assure efficient extruded product handling. Typically located directly after cutting devices, the MTAC assures product is moved away from the cutter at adjustable speeds typically in excess of line speed, eliminating accumulation and sorting confusion. Extruded products are efficiently moved toward packaging and/or other handling operations. Diverter arms may be easily added to direct product flow.

The belt surface, in 4 or 8-inch widths and up to 16 feet long is white and durable, minimizing handling contamination of extruded product by operators. The belt drive is a 1 Hp variable speed AC motor.

Labor free parts collection

The conveyor automatically discharges parts to a collection tray or scrap collection bin, allowing operators to tend to other value added activities. As an option, MTAC conveyors can be configured for split manifolds for common side front and rear collection or for dual sided collection.

Easy segregation of good and bad parts

The conveyor can be interfaced with the diameter or wall thickness measuring gauge to separate parts which do not meet specifications. The ejector system is disabled and the parts discharge off the end of the conveyor instead of into the collecting tray.

Medical application option

Medical option includes precision, geared height actuator for fine adjustment for up/ down/tilt to optimize part support and take-away. The MTAC can be powder coated or supplied with a stainless steel frame to aid wash down.
