Generally, MoveRoll Horizontal Conveyor makes ramps or slopes for moving paper or board rolls in rolling motion superfluous. Mounted on even ground, the conveyor’s pressure elements transport rolls safely and smoothly in controlled fashion. However, many paper mills, years ago, decided to go for a finishing area layout, that includes sloped floors and ramps for roll transport. For logistical and cost-efficiency reasons it is not always possible for paper mills to level the floor or to get rid of old ramp constructions. We have developed MoveRoll Ramp Conveyor to make roll handling in such situations safer and more efficient.
Problems of Traditional Roll Handling on Ramps
Traditionally, roll motion on ramps is generated mechanically or gravitationally. Hence, roll motion and roll speed are fast and uncontrolled. Often, paper mills have included steel stops or pneumatic stoppers in their ramps. These devices are usually energy – and/or maintenance intensive. When rolls collide with such stops and stoppers, they often bounce back and force heavily. Consequently, common problems of roll handling on ramps are work safety issues, paper roll damages, and high energy and maintenance expenses.
Smooth Roll Transport with MoveRoll Ramp Conveyor
MoveRoll Ramp Conveyor transports rolls smoothly uphill on inclines of up to 10 mm/m and downhill on declines of up to 30 mm/m. Like the horizontal conveyor, Ramp Conveyor is flat and has a modular built. It is possible to install the conveyor modules directly on the floor or on top of existing constructions. The pressure elements keep control of a roll’s rolling motion. Consequently, heavy collisions with metal stops do not occur.
The most significant advantages of MoveRoll Ramp Conveyor are gentle material handling on ramps, increased production efficiency, and improved work safety.
