Versaflex Flat Top Chain Conveyor System

The Flexible Solution
from the Construction Kit

The fully modular and standardised Versaflex flat top chain conveyor system is ideal for complex track designs within a three dimensional space. The different chain widths allow a fast configuration and a problem-free design of the system, alternatively also with workpiece carriers.

The flat top chain conveyor system Versaflex, formerly the plastic chain conveyor of E-M-M-A GmbH, features a modular design. The standardised modules and components make it simple and cost effective to integrate the system into any production process, as well as to adapt and expand it. Versaflex is a conveyor system that grows with your requirements. Moreover, it is compatible with systems that are currently available on the market and is being used very successfully in all areas of industry. Most notable for the transport of primary and secondary-packaged products from, among others, the food, pharmaceutical, chemical or consumer goods industry, but also for the transport of workpiece carriers in assembly lines e.g. of the automotive industry and for the linking of machines in the manufacturing industry the System optimally suited.

The single-track design and curve radii starting at 150 mm allow complex routes to be mapped in confined spaces. The chain runs on wear strips to ensure low wear and can be operated at speeds of up to 50 m/min and system lengths up to 40 m with just one drive. Whether as a turnkey solution or in an assembly kit, the system is extremely flexible and efficient with chain widths of 44 mm to 295 mm and a large selection of accessories. Gentle transport and exact positioning using workpiece carriers is also available as standard.

Overview of the Modules

In addition to the conveying paths, numerous accessory components complete the construction kit to ensure design freedom when constructing the system. mk offers drives, bends and cleats as well as side rails and stands to suit the task and the goods to be conveyed. Various function modules are also available, such as stoppers for accumulating, buffering or separating products as well as switches for distributing the products to several conveying paths.

Conveyor Chains

Three system versions are currently available as standard. Different chain widths are available depending on the size and weight of the goods to be transported. A product can be two or three times the width of the conveying chain provided the centre of gravity of the transported goods is within the chain width; additional supporting tracks may be required.

Further system widths, for example, 45, 175 and 295 mm are available as options on request.

The chains are made from the material POM and are available in a wide variety of designs for virtually all applications – with an adhesive surface for inclines, with steel covering for sharp-edged parts or flocked for transporting very delicate items. In addition, a large number of different cleats are available – rollers in a wide range of dimensions for accumulating products, or flexible cleats for implementing clamping conveyors. Furthermore, chain links with embedded magnets can be used to transport magnetisable parts.

Workpiece Carrier System

To ensure the precise positioning of products, workpiece carriers can also be transported on the A08 system. As described above, the system is 85 mm wide (chain width 83 mm) and is designed for products weighing up to 10 kg per carrier. The carriers have a standard width of 150 mm and are guided by side rails and positioned exactly in three levels in the locating stations. So the products are fixed, buffered and transported gently, safely and accurately.

The workpiece carrier can be customised and equipped with individual fixtures. The locating station can be freely positioned without changing the side rails. A positional accuracy of ± 0.1 mm is achieved. Therefore the workpiece carrier is lifted off the conveyor chain.
