The Shuttleworth Zone Control® Conveyor is constructed of Slip-Trak® design and is an electronically controlled, non-complex transport and accumulation conveyor suited to applications requiring no product-to-product contact. It is ideal for moving fragile, delicate, motion sensitive materials and products. The Zone Control Conveyor includes conveyors, rotator/corner devices, vertical conveyors, horizontal and side transfers. The Zone Control system is fabricated of ultra clean, non-outgassing components and materials. It can be configured to comply with and operate inside FED-STD 209E Class 1 (ISO Class 3) clean room environments. Electrostatic discharge levels on the conveyor surface typically 25 volts or less (product and speed dependent).
The surface can be tailored to ESD levels approaching one volt. Our Zone Control Conveyor is safe, quiet, sleek and ergonomically friendly. Every roller on both sides of the conveyor is positively driven. This double-sided positive drive limits or eliminates product "crabbing" or skewing, even with distorted products/carriers. Zoned rollers are active only "on demand". When the product leaves a zone, all rollers turn off. Speed acceleration and deceleration can be customized. Each module is controlled by a PLC, within the conveyor frame. The independent modules allow for easy installation in new or reconfigured material handling lines and can be floor, sub-floor, in-plenum, ceiling or wall mounted. The Shuttleworth Zone Control Conveyor sets a new standard for ultra-clean, low-level ESD, non-contact accumulating material handling.
