Increased productivity in the assembly line by fixed strokes

PulseTrack is the simplest way to implement flow production. Connecting the pulse conveyor to the cart increases productivity thanks to fixed cycles and maximum energy efficiency.

  • Just one drive unit which allows to move all carts on the entire line simultaneously
  • Higher work safety
  • High economic efficiency through carts without drives
  • Complete floor area closed
Line weight up to 600 tons

Line weight up to 600 t

The PulseTrack system consists of a pulse conveyor and a cart of the series LeanTrack or CustomTrack. The system permits ergonomic continuous flow production with a line weight of up to 600 tons. The products are automatically advanced to the next work station. Fixed cycles increase productivity.

Minimised energy and follow-up costs

Maintenance-free components and higher energy efficiency make the PulseTrack extremely costeffective and sustainable: One drive for several cart permits simultaneous cycling of the entire line. This means the carts themselves have no drive. The minimised rolling resistance between the steel wheel and steel track means that only very little energy is required to move great loads.

Installation dimensions of the pit for the underfloor drive

  • Holding profile embedded on floor level like the RoundTrack
  • PulseTrack can be retrofitted
  • No obstacles, as the drive is installed on the floor level

Technical data 

PulseTrack

Max. load to pull

Up to 600 tons on the entire RoundTrack line

Cycle length

The cycle length is freely definable according to customer requirement

Cycle time

The cycle time is also freely definable according to customer requirements

Speed

Up to: 3 m/min loaded and 5 m/min unloaded (Depending on the total weight and the local conditions)

Controls

Siemens S7 - 15XXF, ET200SP, KTP900
SEW or Siemens servo geared motor

Communication

A data interface to external control systems (e. g. SCADA level) for monitoring and control is prepared as standard. The hardware coupling can be configured individually for the customer.

Safety concept

  • Continuous speed monitoring
  • Mechanical torque monitoring
  • Emergency Stop switch at each pulse station
  • Release button at each assembly station prior to cycling

Energy consumption
of the drive unit

  • 0,6 kW/h (30 min cycle time and 8 m cycle length)
  •  Required power supply: 400 V/32 A

Application

Suitable for all RoundTrack sizes:

  • RoundTrack 25
  • RoundTrack 40
  • RoundTrack 60

Can also be retrofitted, if the track gauge is >= 1,250 mm

Optional change of direction

Crossing elements (90°)

Cross chassis in the cart or turning stations integrated in the floor allow the transport carts to change direction easily. This makes it possible to reach any position on the job site. The cross chassis enables a change of direction in combination with crossing elements. The crossing element is installed together with the RoundTrack. Preferred use: few carts and many crossings.

Quadro turnstile (90°)

The RoundTrack crossing consists of four individual turning units. The cassettes in the cart are swivel-mounted. With a passive quadruple switch, the changeover is achieved by a knee lever. In the case of the active quadro switch, the change of direction is effected by pneumatically driven quadro switches in the floor. Preferred use: many carts with few crossings, without inclines and without orientation changes.

Turning station (0-360°)

The turning stations are manufactured individually according to the track width and cart size. The floor level turning stations can be turned manually or by automatic drive, as a result the orientation of the product is also changed. Preferred use: many carts, few crossings on inclined tracks or when changing orientation.
