Together we create unique solutions

Our flexible design makes various versions and individual extensions to our small conveyors possible, no matter whether the application calls for integrated lateral guides, two track or multi track solutions, round belts, a knife edge or a shaft stub. We also provide you with 3D models for every custom solution.

On this page you will find a selection of special solutions which we have manufactured for our customers according to individual specifications. Talk to us and benefit from our experience.

Lateral guides

Objective

From time to time, conveyed goods require special “guidance”. To make sure parts that are round or especially light don’t fall off the belt, a special sliding plate is needed.

Solution

The small conveyor is equipped with a special sliding support instead of the usual sliding plate. The plate is manufactured from a single piece and bent upwards to form a “U-shaped groove”. This is how the integrated lateral guides are formed. We’d be happy to talk with you about the height you require.

Material: Stainless steel, which can alternatively be equipped with additional plastic lateral guides.

It is possible to add lateral guides to any of the conveyor models.

Solution

The small conveyor is equipped with a special sliding support instead of the usual sliding plate. This example shows a model from the modular kit with black plastic lateral guides.

Modular kit 2-track

Project description

Multiple-track conveyor solutions are often required when complex products are to also hang down between the tracks.

Other conceivable application cases include testing or assembly tasks. For example, it is possible to fit stoppers or ejectors between the tracks.

Solution

We manufacture multiple-track conveyor solutions using our flexible modular kit system. The solution consists of a motor and any number of conveyor tracks. This version makes it possible for us to ensure that all conveyors run synchronously at the exact same speed. If more complex products are to be conveyed on all tracks, synchronous running is essential. On request, the transverse profiles shown in the picture can also be fitted at a different point for mounting. You are flexible with regard to housing width and in your choice of conveyor belts.

Modular kit 4-track

Round belts

Project description

If a flat conveyor belt is not the ideal surface for your conveyed goods, it is also possible to use round belts. Round belts are always used when the product requires an exact belt line. In the example shown here, the product is also to be able to hang down between the tracks along the entire length of the conveyor.

Solution

For free conveyance of the components protruding downward, special drive and deflector rollers were used which enable the required clearance height above the drive shaft. In addition, special sliding guides were used for the round belts.

The belts are made of elastic PU material and are available in various diameters.

Vacuum belt

Project description

The small conveyor with vacuum function is often used to transport products which are particularly lightweight and which under no circumstances are to be permitted to “fly off”. In this case, our customer manufactures small plastic bags and needs a small conveyor for intermediate transport of the product which provides the option of keeping the bags on the belt by means of suction.

Solution

The solution was a small conveyor with a vacuum conveyor belt made of polyurethane. The PU foil has many perforations through which intake air can flow to create the vacuum. The foils to be conveyed thus remain lying in the desired position on the conveyor belt.

The housing of the conveyor is equipped with several connections for the intake air in order to enable high air throughput.

Knife edge

Project description

If especially small parts are to be transferred from one conveyor to the next one, a special solution is needed. Another knife edge use case is when products are to be scanned from below while being conveyed from A to B.

Solution

Although the roller diameter of Vetter small conveyors is already small, further reduction is necessary. With roller diameters of 5 and 8 mm, especially small parts can be transferred from one conveyor to the next one without any problems.

The gap between the two belts is thus considerably reduced and can, for instance, also be used for scanning the products from below.

For this application, we have special belts in our range which we have successfully tested for the increased load at the knife edge. On request, we can also rely on belts for this application, which are endless and therefore have no weld seam. This provides an even calmer and more accurate runnability.

Encoder shaft

Solution

If you’d like to mount your own encoder at the conveyor, we are happy to also equip our products with an encoder shaft. You can use the connection to easily connect the external rotary encoder and access the output signals.

Shaft stub

Solution

On request, we also produce our small conveyors without an integrated motor. Instead, we equip the conveyor with a shaft stub, which you can use to flexibly connect your own drive.

Sealed profiles

Objective

For use in sterile environments, e.g. in the pharmaceuticals industry or in food processing, the requirements our products must meet are particularly strict. The objective is to create a product which offers no chance for dirt particles or impurities to accumulate. Recesses and grooves of all kinds must be avoided.

Solution

For this special case, we have further optimized our “Q series” (small conveyors with transverse drive). In the case of the Q series, the drive is integrated in the housing for the most part and comes with an external cover for protection against contact. The drive housing can thus be optimally sealed to protect against the ingress of dust and liquids.

The example here shows a further optimization which results from replacing conventional profiles with sealed profiles.

The solution is possible for all conveyors in which profiles are integrated.
