FlexLink launches new online 3D CAD library.

July 11, 2021

As a part of FlexLink’s web based market communication, a new set of tools aimed at simplifying the engineering process for production logistics systems will be launched within the near future. The first release is an upgraded online 3D CAD library compatible with a wide range of file formats used by production system design engineers.

The overall purpose is to facilitate the engineering process, shorten project time and minimize errors in the design, ordering and installation stages. The 3D CAD library is a service to production system design engineers working for end users, system builders, machine suppliers and engineering consultants.

The online service, including native CAD files for the FlexLink conveyor system component range, is now available through www.flexlink.com. Availability is subject to qualification, as the correct use of the files requires knowledge of conveyor applications. The files are available for 45 CAD file formats such as Catia, I-DEAS, Pro/Engineer, SolidWorks or UNIGRAPHICS. Formats such as SAT, STEP, IGES, DXF, DWG, SolidWorks, Inventor and SolidEdge are available on CD for rapid access and work offline.

“This service is an element in building our vision of easier automation for engineers who are familiar with conveyor systems. It will attract new users and support repeat business and the aftermarket, so that end users can upgrade and continuously enhance their production logistics systems”, says Christer Cedervall, Director, Automation Products Division.

Taking care of the dust

May 13, 2022

A new conveyor design for dusty applications.

The main features are for taking care of the dust in the tissue industry, between the log-saws and the primary packaging.

Instead of the dust being collected and hardened inside the equipment it will be easier evacuated. The new conveyor is designed for transporting round items; it enables smooth contact with the naked products, minimizing product damages. Further wear resistance has been achieved with new slide rails, a modified chain link and a new idler end unit. These new components fit into FlexLink’s existing conveyor platforms.

Reduced time for change-over

A simple but unique concept for guiding roll products in an efficient way has been used for several years by FlexLink. The guide rails eliminate the need for changing over the conveyors between different product sizes. This concept maintains the reliability, preventing products to be dislocated.

FlexLink also has a wide range of guide rails system for larger products like packs, bags and bundles, from easy manually adjustable to a system for automatic and centrally changed over systems.
