IC Series Precision Link Conveyor
Overview
IC Series
The IC80 series precision link conveyor is an excellent choice for a robust, accurate linear assembly chassis. Precision machined steel links are accurately advanced with either a fixed motion cam indexer or a servo driven zero-backlash RollerDrive®. Our robust steel conveyor frame preloads the links in all directions. An innovative chain tensioning system and all needle bearing design extends the service life of the conveyor by reducing vibration and eliminating chain stretch. Conveyor lengths are available in 480mm (18.89”) increments.

Features

Speed & Accuracy
• Up to 120 cycles per minute
• ±0.1 mm (±0.0039”) feed pitch accuracy

Load Capacity
• Static axial/face load: 4,500 N (1,011 lb/f) per link
• Dynamic offset load: ~350 N with 200 mm offset (78 lb/f with 8” offset) per link
• Each link is supported with 12 bearings total (80 mm link has 10)
• All links are preloaded in X, Y & Z axis for zero backlash
• Carousel frame can support 250 kg (550 lb) between support leg
Standard Features
• Chordal chain tensioning for minimal chain stretch, vibration & maintenance
• All bearings are precision types to maintain accuracy & long service life
• All link bearings/followers ride on hardened steel surfaces for longevity
• Unlimited conveyor lengths, 480 mm (18.9”) increments
• Steel frame & chain links are nickel plated
• Hollow links & open frame allows access to the back of the part
• Versatile, mounts in any position or angle, reconfigurable
Options
• 80, 120, 160 & 240 mm (3.14, 4.72, 6.29 & 9.44 inches) link sizes
• Single or multiple chain link feed pitch options, reversible
• Fixed motion indexing motor drive, 8 torque ranges available
• Programmable servo motor drive, 5 torque ranges available
• Safety clutch & overload detection
• Economical support legs or machine base with custom configurations
• Line shaft synchronized or asynchronous pick & place handlers
• Aluminum links for high speed, low inertia applications

Applications
• Linear inline assembly when accurate positioning’s required
• Reconfigurable lengths to match product size or increased production
• Serve as the main chassis when multiple components are assembled
