The patented RSI In-Floor and On-Floor Tow
Line Conveyor Systems are used throughout manufacturing, assembly,
finishing and material handling applications. There are currently a multitude of Rhodes Tow Line Conveyor Systems operating worldwide.
Systems range from thirty feet in length to over seventy-two hundred
feet in length.
The RSI Tow Line Conveyor System is ideal for the
production of items that require progressive or sequential operations. The
system can be specified as an in-floor or on-floor system that moves product
through progressive workstations for different production applications.
Total System Access
- Total system access is one of the many
features of The RSI In-Floor Tow Line Conveyor System. The system is
virtually free of structural interferences. Throughout the entire
conveyor, employees have the freedom of mobility with access around
and between carts. Because of the simple modular design of The
Rhodes Conveyor, systems can be easily and quickly expanded,
preventing costly plant shutdowns with minimum or no loss of production.
Power and Free
- The RSI Tow Line Conveyor is a power and free system. Unlike other
conventional systems utilizing fixed cart spacing, carts on The
Rhodes Tow Line Conveyor can be placed into workstations upon
request, processed on a variable time frame, then randomly
distributed back into the system for additional operations.
- Robust components used on The Rhodes Tow Line Conveyor Systems
have been time tested to ensure that they adhere to the highest
standards of quality, longevity and merchantability.
- The RSI Tow Line Conveyors have the
capability to easily accommodate infinite variable centers. The
system has been engineered to run multiple drives on one precision
calibrated tow line chain. Accordingly, every horizontal chain link
is a potential cart center. Spacing of carts is unlimited.
Cart Delay and Close Packing
- The RSI Tow Line Conveyor allows the tow
pin, on any cart in the system, to disengage the chain. This delays
the cart at preset workstations. The next approaching cart causes
this delayed cart to re-engage the chain and continue on, allowing
the next cart to enter the workstation. Carts will stop and remain
in zero-pressure accumulation whenever encountering a track-mounted
stop devise. When the stop is released, the cart will automatically
engage the chain and continue through the system. Cost savings
abound with cart accumulation as equipment sizes are reduced and
valuable plant space is saved.
