XL - Conveyor (23)


All LOGO!MAT Components are developed to make very little preservative maintenance neces-sary but all components will last way longer if the following tasks get do in the shown intervals. The maintenance and inspection work listed below is to be carried out at the listed intervals to keep the warranty and to follow up constantly if the LOGO!MAT Component is working well. Any defects found must be documented and fixed before operating again. All time specifications are based on single-shift operations.

With an interval of one (1) month the following preservative maintenance should be carried out:
  1. Check all roller conveyor components for wear and damage.
  2. Visual condition check of all components.
  3. Check...



To change the drive motor, please proceed as follows:
  1. Disconnect the electrical and pneumatic supply of the entire conveyor system and secure against reconnection.
  2. Remove the clear front cover of the drive station and release the chain tensioner. Lock it in that position with an adequate device.
  3. Remove the chain from the drive sprocket.
  4. If the drive sprocket has more than 18 teeth, please remove it from the motor shaft as described in the previous chapter "Replacing the re-directional sprocket". For smaller sprockets, the sprocket can remain on the output shaft.
  5. Release the motor clamping bolts and remove the motor backwards.
  6. If the drive sprocket is still installed, please mount it to the...

To change the re-directional sprockets, please proceed as follows:
  1. Disconnect the electrical and pneumatic supply of the entire conveyor system and secure against reconnection.
  2. Turn the fan of the drive motor in the direction of flow to drive the conveyor manually until a master link is visible (zinced).
  3. Remove the clear front cover of the drive station and the steel plate above the clear front cover.
  4. Release the chain tensioner. Lock it in that position with an adequate device.
  5. Open the chain at the master link.
  6. Unbolt the re-directional sprockets.
  7. For installation please proceed in reverse order.

To change the drive sprocket in a drive unit with long tensioner, please proceed as follows:
  1. Disconnect the electrical and pneumatic supply of the entire conveyor system and secure against reconnection.
  2. Remove the clear front cover of the drive station and release the chain tensioner. Lock it in that position with an adequate device.
  3. Remove the chain from the drive sprocket.
  4. Release the mounting bolts of the drive sprocket with an Allen wrench (M6) and remove the bolts with the disk.
  5. Pull the drive sprocket off the motor shaft with a suitable puller. The spacer ring has to remain on the motor shaft because it will be used as a hard stop for the new sprocket to get the right alignment.
  6. Install...

A replacement of the entire chain is required when the chain is worn out, or worn beyond the limits of the chain tensioner. Signs for that are high soiling, non-moving chain links and rust at the chain, or seeing a red color code on the chain tensioner slider indicating that it is at the end of its travel.
 
To replace the chain in a drive unit with long tensioner, please proceed as follows:
  1. Disconnect the electrical supply of the entire conveyor system and secure against reconnection.

  3. Remove the lower extrusion of the drive station by taking out the three...

To shorten the drive chain, please proceed as follows:
  1. Disconnect the electrical supply of the entire conveyor system and secure against reconnection.
  2. Remove the top rail extrusion above the drive station.
  3. Turn the fan of the drive motor in the direction of flow to drive the conveyor manually until a master link is visible (zinced).
    CAUTION: There is a residual danger because of the non covered chain drive.
  4. Remove the clear front cover of the drive station and release the chain tensioner. Lock it in that position with an adequate device.
  5. Open the master link, and pull the chain to tension and shorten the excessive chain.
  6. Reconnect both chain ends with the master link. Pay attention to the...

When working on the side guide rollers, a free access has to be provided at their mounting point. Please remove any attached structure on top of the pallet, if necessary.
 
To change the side guide rollers of a pallet, please proceed as follows:
  1. Loosen both bolts (only loosen, do not remove them yet) from the top of the top plate that holds the side guide rollers.
  2. Push the bolts down, so that the shaft of the side guide rollers moves out of the pocket in the top plate.
  3. Remove both bolts completely.
  4. Now the side guide rollers can be removed to the side together with the shaft.
  5. Install the new side guide roller in the reverse order as described above. Make sure that the roller is flexible,...

LOGOMAT automation systems, Inc. offers two different types of pallets for nominal width [NW] of 600:
 
   Pallet, curve traveling
   Pallet, not curve traveling
 
All types of pallets are available with (hardened) index bushings or retaining bolts for the tooling plate.
 
The pallets, which are used in your conveyor system, even if they have a customized cutout, are listed in the project related conveyor parts list in detail.
 
Customized cut-outs or modification on the pallet base can influence the pallet flow drastically. LOGOMAT automation system, Inc. only insures a guarantee for proper function if the pallet is not modified and doesn’t have a special customized cutout.
