Two functions, one conveyor system, full speed...

Helix curves are always deployed in parcel handling systems when apart from transport over a curve there is also a difference in height that needs to be overcome. Thanks to the holistic construction concept, TRANSNORM helix curves combine performance and reliability. In addition, the effective space requirement of the conveyor reduces in the system layout and the entire handling right up to belt replacement is highly simplified.

TRANSNORM helix curves offer the following benefits

  • Extremely high values of throughput
  • Less controlling effort and no advance cyclic operation
  • Patented belt guiding system and conical drums for maximum reliability and smoothness in running
  • Low-tension conveyor belt drive across the entire width of the belt enables extremely long deployment times

Brief, accurate and forceful - timing conveyors from TRANSNORM

While merging in sorting circuits or collecting lines of parcel handling systems, high-power modules such as TRANSNORM angled belt conveyors are used. In order to be able to exploit the full performance of these modules, timing conveyors are required that work reliably even in a Stop-and-Go mode of operation. High starting torques and conveyor speeds are no problem for these TRANSNORM Timing conveyors. For very short conveyor track lengths compared to the belt width, TRANSNORM relies on two-sided belt guidance that ensures absolute directional stability.

Timing conveyors from TRANSNORM offer the following benefits

  • Accurate timing with high performance
  • Optimal belt synchronism even in Stop-and-Go mode of operation
  • It can be designed (compared to the width) with very short conveyor track lengths
  • Compact construction and design with several timing modules combined with TRANSNORM angled belts

TRANSNORM Roller Merge – Contactless merging with high performance and speed

When it comes to merging two input lines in a parcel distribution centre with high throughput and without the parcels making contact with anything then you need to deploy the TRANSNORM Roller Merge. The goods to be transported run through the Roller Merge without making contact with the guide elements on the sides and this therefore prevents very flat goods, such as envelopes or film packages, from becoming jammed below the lateral guides.

The TRANSNORM Roller Merge provides the following benefits

  • Contactless merging of even very flat goods such as envelopes or film packages
  • Large range of products based on the low roller diversion of 57 mm 
  • Timing operation is possible to some extent in the design using rubberised rollers

Line splitting
Line splitting

Dividing lines reliably in the high-performance range

In parcel distribution centres that involve line diversions, e.g. for feeding to the sorter in the upper performance range, the SmartSort® LineSplitter offers a standardised solution for the industry. Heterogeneous goods to be transported including dispatch bags or smaller cardboard boxes can be distributed reliably with a peak performance of up to 7,000 units per hour. Moreover, considerably reduced distances between the individual parcels are possible as a result of the extremely low line switching times. Another advantage lies in gentle product handling: The goods being conveyed pass through the LineSplitter without making contact with lateral guide elements.

The TRANSNORM LineSplitter offers the following benefits for parcel distribution centre

  • Line splitting in the high-performance segment even with sensitive and heterogeneous goods to be conveyed
  • Greatly reduced clearances between the goods being conveyed thanks to extremely low switching times
