The wide range of modules in the Sigma transfer system guarantees maximum flexibility in the event of changes to premises, production figures or production processes. Long set-up and changeover times associated with high costs and the associated forced breaks are avoided. The transfer system can be supplied either fully assembled or modularly pre-assembled and ready for self-assembly at the customer's request.
90° / 180° drives drive the standard chain continuously (up to 60 m in length). One drive is required per cycle.
For connecting and guiding the chain between different modules.
Ensure the necessary chain tension. Used from a chain length of approx. 20 m or more or from a total of more than 720° direction changes. Pneumatically adjusted.
45° / 90° / 180° fixed deflections to change direction.
45° / 90° / 180° rolling deflections to change direction. Reduced resistance between transport chain and deflection by rollers.
90° / 180° rotating deflections to change direction. Significantly reduced resistance between transport chain and deflection due to rotating deflection wheels.
Intersection modules 1
Enable the workpiece carrier to be diverted to a parallel secondary section in the smallest of spaces and with minimum control effort.
Intersection modules 2
Enable the connection between a main and secondary circuit in the smallest of spaces and with minmium control effort.
Intersection modules 3
Enable two circuits to be connected. The drives of the standard chain per circuit are already integrated in the module and therefore the drive modules are not required for both circuits.
Intersection modules 4
Enable the connection between a main and secondary circuit with simultaneous running in and out of the secondary circuit through the two short belt sections.
Intersection modules 5
Enable the connection between two circuits with a buffer section that is variable in length.
Guide workpiece carriers from one circuit to another. For example, to bypass cells, workstations or manual workstations.
For connecting two circuits with opposite running direction.
Linear conveyor modules
Autonomous secondary lines with their own drive. These are connected to the circuit via cross travel modules.
Cross transfer modules
Guide workpiece carriers to a second parallel circuit or a parallel belt.
Circuit transfer modules
Connect two circuits without any control effort and small space requirement, thus two circuits can also be connected with different chain speeds.
Soft motion conveyor
Enable a freely programmable speed, gentle vibration-free stopping and acceleration of the workpiece carriers, reduction of cycle times, reversibility.
Serve to support the longitudinal section modules, available in all system widths. Also available as an expandable version for two sections, as shown.
Extend the possibilities and flexibility in layout and concept design even further. Can be adapted to project and customer specifications.
Chain deflection modules
Enable access or machining of workpieces from below.
External part remover
Serves to remove foreign bodies, dirt and dust on, next to and below the transfer chain. Available in two versions or according to customer requirements.
Serve as an assembly surface or as a storage compartment for tools and assembly materials. Ergonomic, smart and easily integrated into the transfer system.
Chain tensioner linear
Ensure the necessary chain tension, does not require 2x90° or 180° deflection as the chain tension is ensured lengthwise. Pneumatically adjusted.
Workpiece carriers transport the workpiece on the transfer system.
Centring and positioning of stopped workpiece carriers in a defined position. (+/- 0.06 mm)
Indexing modules elevated
Centring and positioning of stopped workpiece carriers in an elevated defined position. (+/- 0.06 mm)
Indexing modules precision
Centring and positioning of stopped workpiece carriers in a defined, precise position. (+/- 0.02 mm)
Used for controlled stopping (fixed) and release of workpiece carriers.
Stop modules damped
Used for controlled stopping (damped) and release of workpiece carriers.
Enable centring and positioning of the stopped workpiece carriers (+/- 0.04 mm), while other workpiece carriers can continue to travel simultaneously. This advantage saves outfeeds.
Idler modules angle as needed
30° / 45° deflection manufactured according to customer requirements and application. As fixed or rolling variant.
Pull- / Push modules
Enable access or machining of the workpieces from below without influencing the further flow of the workpiece carrier. Also suitable for longer process times.
Chain tensioner mechanical
Ensure the necessary chain tension is used from a chain length of approx. 20 m or more or from a total of more than 720° directional changes. Mechanically adjusted.
