MK Profile Systems has adapted its standard chain conveyor so that it can be used as a dual-lane parts-handling conveyor. The low-maintenance cycle chain conveyor is suitable for use in both dirty and hot environments.

Camshafts are transported into a processing machine (or lathe), separated and positioned so that they are accurately located in the lathe each time.

As the aim is to process different types of camshafts, the width of the conveyor system is variably adjustable.

Not only can several batches be transported on one conveyor, but the product-specific fixtures prevent product contact and material damage.

How this is achieved

  • The fixtures screwed to the chain serve as cleats for the camshafts.
  • The conveyor drive shaft is loosely mounted in the second lane, making it possible to adjust the width using two linear modules.
  • The two linear modules are connected by a timing belt, so that they run in parallel and synchronously.
  • A positioning unit at the end locates and aligns the camshafts.

Our four main business areas are Profile Technology, Conveyor Technology, Linear Motion and Factory Equipment.

Our comprehensive range of over 250 Aluminium Profiles includes 25, 40, 50 & 60mm series profiles, all made from high-quality alloys.  We have various connecting methods as well as accessories and standard parts.  This provides organised functionality for modern machine building.

mk’s 24 Conveying Systems are fully compatible with the aluminium profile system. They include conveyor modules such as flat-belt, twin-belt, timing belt, chain, flat top chain and roller for automation purposes.

Our conveyor technology offers you simplified planning and design due to our standardised modules.  We offer high flexibility in system and plant building and modification due to compatibility with all mk systems.

We can provide factory equipment in the form of guarding systems, gangways, stairs, platforms and work stations for the office, shop floor, assembly hall or any other area where required.

mk’s Linear Motion range includes slide rails, rollers and fully assembled modules for materials handling applications with high levels of accuracy and repeatability.

Our key customers come from areas such as automation, robotics, system integration, factory machinery, OEMs and end users however there really are no limits for the use of mk’s aluminium profile system.
Many of our customers choose to have their designs assembled at the mk factory so the finished article is delivered directly to them, however we are just as happy to deliver a kit of parts to enable customers to assemble the goods themselves.  We will work with you to find the best way to meet your requirements, budget and time constraints.
