Backlit Conveyors from Conveyor Technologies
Bright LEDs backlight conveyor belt.
Milford, OH — Upgrading to new high-intensity LED light modules in AccuVision Internal Backlit Conveyors, reportedly makes visual inspection more accurate and efficient. Newly introduced by Conveyor Technologies Ltd., the AccuVision conveyor design uses a translucent, light-passing belt. The LED system penetrates the translucent belt with an intense, uniform light field, optimally illuminating part shape for superior automatic or manual visual inspection.

The conveyors are available in a comprehensive selection of belt widths and light field choices to meet inspection needs of a wide range of industries.

According to the company, the LED light modules are resistant to damage from shock or vibration. Freedom from frequency oscillation makes them especially suitable for high-speed digital cameras. LEDs are available in both white and red light versions for improved compatibility with digital cameras and operate on 15VDC. Vastly superior service life — rated in years — virtually eliminates the need for light replacement.

The new light field is available in six widths from 2 to 12-in., and five lengths from 6 to 30-in. The backlit conveyors can be ordered in belt widths from 2.5 to 24-in. The low-profile conveyor bridge is only 2.28-in. high, even with the LED light module mounted inside. Isolation mounts dampen vibration. The conveyor drives are available in fixed speed, variable speed, and indexing drives with controlled acceleration and deceleration.

A rigid single-piece steel frame has extruded aluminum side rails with dual tee-slots for attaching auxiliary devices. The AccuVision system retains the company's exclusive design features, including open stand design and two-minute belt change. Sealed-for-life bearings and drive system eliminate the potential for belt and product contamination, delivering virtually maintenance-free operation.
