Systematic flexibility
The flexibility of the ASF is based on a completely modular rail system with which a wide variety of system layouts can be implemented.
The transport rails consisting of anodized aluminum profiles with internal rollers are the heart of the ASF. Additionally, transport shuttles are used as product carriers, which do not need much greasing, are low-maintenance and run in the transport rails. Depending on the size of the parts, the transport shuttles are custom-made in different lengths from 1 to 8 meters.
Depending on individual requirements, transport rails can be arranged in parallel in parts of the system, for example in the cross transfer magazines, buffers or ovens. That way, a large number of product carriers can be moved simultaneously in the smallest spaces. Cross transport is also possible in this constellation and ensures a closed transport cycle within the system.
Due to the highly flexible, modular design, layouts in almost any size can be realized. The conveyor technology from AFOTEK adapts perfectly to the spatial conditions and customer production processes. This allows compact solutions to be implemented over several floors in confined spaces.
In addition, the ASF can be extended and adapted cost-effectively at any time, since the desired modules, such as buffers or cross transfer magazines, can be easily integrated into the existing system. Overtaking sections can also be retrofitted without any problems.
The advantages of the ASF drive concept:
  • Space-saving design
  • System can be implemented on several levels
  • Expandable conveyor system
  • Fast and uncomplicated installation of the system

 Don't let them put you on the chain

With conventional conveyor technology solutions, the entire transport of goods uses one conveyor chain, so that all components travel through the system at the identical, defined conveyor speed. As a result, all workpieces pass through the pretreatment, painting and drying processes with identical cycle times.

In comparison, with the ASF each transport unit has its own drive unit with an individual control unit. Each product carrier can thus be individually controlled as required. This enables variable process speeds within the system on the one hand and reverse travel within the process on the other.

That way, it is possible to drive through the coating cabins systematically at a lower speed and to drive through the plant at high speed on free transport routes. Consequently, processing cycle times of the ASF can be configured independently, resulting in significantly higher efficiency, lower process costs and faster throughput times.

The shuttles can bridge up to 250 mm without transport rails, which means that the conveyor rail can be interrupted, e.g. at fire doors or other fire sections, without restricting transport.


 The advantages of the ASF drive concept: 

  • Speeds, directions of motion and stops are variable and reversible.
  • Buffers allow any retrieval options (e.g. sorting function or use as "bag station")
  • Product carriers can be individually controlled and regulated
  • Different process speeds within the plant possible

Querschnitt1The AFOTEK Shuttle Conveyor System is an innovative transport system with maximum flexibility. The conveyor system is characterized by its modular design and can therefore be extended and/or adapted as required. A further advantage compared to conventional solutions can be found in the drive concept. The ASF goods carrier transport does not depend on one chain; each goods carrier can be controlled separately and individually - a new dimension in goods carrier logistics.
