Robotics integrator QComp Technologies Inc., Greenville, Wis., has introduced five new conveyors designed specifically to meet the needs of glass-handling applications, according to an April Solar Industry report. The complete line of conveyors include straight, pop-up transfer, cantilevered-finger, tilt-top and skewed-roller conveyors.
The straight conveyor is designed for precise and non-marking transportation of flat glass. The pop-up transfer conveyor is intended for 90-degree transfer from one straight section to another, and the cantilevered-finger conveyor allows for bottom-side glass placement with an integrated robot tool, according to the report.
The tilt-top conveyor allows for easier inspection and manual load or unload of conveyor, and the skewed-roller conveyor moves glass to one side of conveyor and justifies it for the next process, the report states.
