Flat Top Chain Conveyor System Versaflex

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 the E-M-M-A GmbH, features a modular design. The standardized 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.

Whether as a turnkey solution for the end user or as a partial solution for the machine builder or integrator. The construction, expansion and adaptation due to changing requirements is quickly and cost-effectively possible by the modular principle.

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.

Versaflex Advantages

  • Economical realisation of complex track designs
  • Simple and fast configuration and commissioning
  • Suitable for all industries and compatible with existing systems
  • Modular system of standardised components
  • Turnkey or as assembly kit
  • User friendly and low maintenance
  • Can be quickly adapted to new production and environmental conditions
  • Saves energy and space
  • Accessories, side rails etc. can be attached in the slots on the conveyor frame profile

Versaflex System Overview

The single-track design and curve radii starting at 150 mm allow complex routes to be mapped in three-dimensional space. The chain runs on wear strips to ensure low wear and can only be operated with one drive at speeds of up to 50 m/min and system lengths of up to 40 m as standard.

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 Versaflex

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.

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 Versaflex P08

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.

Application Examples

Refurbishing for a Sustainable Closed-loop Economy

The company rebuy established a new and complete pilot system for the automated inspection and processing of smartphones. mk supplied the conveyor lines and workstations.

Faster transport of round battery cells in module building

Round battery cells are fed into the assembly process for the production of battery packs and must be transported position-oriented to another level. The goods to be transported should flow smoothly, i.e. should be transported without a pallet, with maximum throughput and high process reliability.

Transporting oily gear parts

During the production of small gear parts, a conveyor must transport the parts from production to the inspection device. A part must be fed every ten seconds. The system runs in 2-shift operation. In order to fit within the existing system, the conveyor must convey the products around a curve…
