Cost efficient automation with accumulating pallet recirculation system

The accumulating pallet recirculation system SPU 2040 is integrated into mk’s transfer systems range. It is said to enable cost-effective and dynamic feeding, buffering, positioning and separating of workpiece pallets (WT).

When linking multiple workstations with different cycle or changeover times, the SPU 2040 allows a countercyclical operation with automatic recirculation of the WT. A second conveying level and devices for lifting and lowering with complex control elements are no longer required. No additional manual or automated loading of pallets is necessary either.

The SPU 2040 is compact in comparison to other systems on the market. This means not only low space requirements, but also good ergonomic properties for workers which place or remove the components on the system. The SPU 2040 is suitable for use in the automotive industry, in measuring systems or supply in welding units, as well as in the plastics industry, for automotive suppliers or manufacturers of machine tools for grinding or turning machines.

As single lane, dual lane or double lane solution the SPU 2040 can be used for workpieces with different weight distribution. In addition to the modules like WT, transfer line, drive, return and frame, stoppers and separators as well as different protective device guards are available.
