An interlinked system that meets the specifications for technical cleanliness is required for the production of syringes. The syringes are placed on the conveyor technology from the preceding machine and then have to be transported through a fire protection hatch. On the other side of the fire protection hatch, the syringes are transported to the processing machine. The syringes are loaded and unloaded by the customer. The controller of the conveyor technology must communicate with the controller of the fire protection hatch: In the event of a fire, the syringes should be moved back a short distance so that the fire protection compartment can close safely.
It was decided that the best solution for the required application was a chain of belt conveyors. The basis of the design were standard belt conveyors from mk. However, in order to meet the customer's cleanliness requirements, these conveyors had to be modified. The company opted for a customer design standard that had already proven effective in the industry: An economical solution that meets the requirements for technical cleanliness. For example, instead of the usual steel rollers in the drive and tail, rollers made of stainless steel were used. The open T-slots were sealed off with closure strips to make the conveyors easier to clean. The side rails were also made from stainless steel sheets.
