Description

Karakuri automation systems require no electricity or electronic controls, utilizing the weight of the product itself to generate motion. It is a low cost solution for automated material handling.

• Affordable automation that do not require a PLC or other electrical control components

• Material handling automation using the component’s own weight to produce movement

• Lifting and lowering stations move bins vertically from one level to another

• Utilizes Robotunits modular automation components, making it easy to integrate with the extrusion system, linear motion units, and conveyor systems

• Systems are customized for each application: discuss each application with our engineering department

Specifications

Specifications

Gravity feed MHS rolling track

The MHS tracks are made of roller components for smooth delivery.

Loads of up to 30 kg/box can be handled.

No limit in length of tracks.

Accessories for rolling track

Anti-reversing stop for bins.

Simple braking inserts can be located as desired along the track.

Counter-weighted lift stations Counter-weighted lift stations can be used to change the elevation of bins, higher or lower positions as required
Bin speed reducers

Speed reducing wheels are integrated to slow the momentum of the bins as they accelerate down the track.

They are designed per bin/part weight and length of track, to slow the bin down as desired.

Direction diverting elements Curved roller sections and 90 degree diverting mechanisms are available for changing direction or orientation of the bin.
