Transcript

  • 1. 10 Rail options for thefast, faster and fastestchangeover
  • 2. Tool less guide rail brackets
    Upgrading to tool-less brackets, like the hand ratchet shown here, is a low-cost investment that helps to speed-up manual adjustments.
  • 3. RULER GUIDES
    This ruler guide bracket saves change-over time by removing the measuring tasks between product runs.
  • 4. Hand wheel
    A hand wheel is a tool-less option for changing rail openings. Hand wheels can move rail sections as long as 20 feet.
  • 5. COUNTER Rail guide
    When extreme precision is necessary, a counter can be integrated with the rail to set exact rail widths.
  • 6. Pin-in-place guide rails
    Production lines that only have a few product sizes can utilize a pin-in-place system. There is a separate pin position on the bracket for each size.
  • 7. MIN-max
    This rail adjustment system, called Min-Max, is used to guide the rail to minimum or maximum positions.
  • 8. Quick set guide
    A tool-less guide rail option, the quick set rail has a positioning spacer that pops in place on the preset adjustment.
  • 9. Interchangeable guides
    Guides are specially designed out of UHMW and are set in place on conveyor to accommodate for different product size runs.
  • 10. Flip out rail
    Guides can be designed with a hinge to flip in and out when not needed. This flip-out rail also allows access for cleaning.
  • 11. Pneumatic rails
    Often used in high volume production lines, automatic rail adjustments are another option to reduce changeover time.
  • 12. Robo rails
    Robo rails provide more flexibility for product widths. The purchase cost is higher, but it is also the fastest, most versatile and accurate method.
  • 13. While there are many things that can be done to reduce change-over between product sizes; rails are usually first on the list.
