Conveyor Moves in Three Directions
A bucket elevator that moves material in three different directions is now available from Gough Econ, Inc. The Elecon™ multi-axis bucket conveyor and elevator system is ideal for applications requiring gentle handling and industrial applications such as delivering blanks to stamping presses. The ‘go anywhere conveyor’ uses cantilevered buckets that move vertically, horizontally and can turn any direction up to 90o without having to transfer the load being conveyed. Buckets for the conveyor are made of polypropylene and have a smooth interior surface to eliminate any product trap areas and help provide maximum cleanliness. Other features include:
- Four bucket configurations: Standard, mid-size, the specialist pasta bucket and the max-Elecon.
- A heavy-duty proprietary tri-planar chain, stainless steel tubular track, and a vertical drive plate for power transfer and chain tension.
- Optional wheel-turn design instead of a static track.
- Multiple cover panel options.
