The roller conveyor with built-in scale for gas cylinders or pipes is a motorized roller conveyor with rubber rollers including a retractable structure operated by two pneumatic cylinders. The structure constitutes the weighing system and is equipped with four load cells, so as to optimize the accuracy of the measurement. When the cylinder arrives in position the roller conveyor stops, the weigher goes up and releases the cylinder from the rollers so that it can be weighed. At the end of the weighing, the structure descends and the cylinder returns to rest on the rollers and the roller conveyor can restart and carry the cylinder to the next station.
The wheelbase of the rollers is designed to ensure a smooth and safe sliding of even the smallest of the formats produced by the customer.
The length of the roller conveyor and the weighing area, as well as the type of load cells, are sized according to the customer’s product size and weight range. Therefore the cylinder support structure of the built-in scale is universal: it can support cylinders from the smallest to the largest in the range produced by the customer without the need for adjustments.
The roller conveyor with built-in scale can be used for both gas cylinders, tubes and semi-finished products and for other products.
The rubber rollers of our production in addition to having a duration equal to those in steel allow to reduce the noise pollution inside the factories.
