Brunel Engineering Services manufacture the Octo Narrow Track Vacuum Conveyor.
The Octo conveyor provides a hold-down force to keep paper and board products firmly pinned down while they undertake further processing operations like;
Plough Folding, left or right
Opening / Closing
Tipping, via a Multifeeder
Glueing, Hotmelt or Cold water based
Featuring three separate belts, each repositionable sideways, and each with four vacuum sections, total of 12. All of the vacuum sections can be independently isolated, to locally release the product as an aid to Bump Turn or Plough Fold operations
With an accessory rail each side, industry recognised attachments can easily be fixed and positioned
The Octo is variable speed, up to approx 80 linear m/min, via a simple Turn-Pot control. We use an inverter drive with Digital input option, should you require to control the speed from an external source.
Ideally coupled to one of our own Flat Bed Vacuum Conveyors, we can build to controls as slave to the coupled conveyor (BES units) or to work as stand alone
Additionally, the our Shingle Conveyor can be placed to slow down and accumulate the finished product
Every Vacuum Conveyor has an individual start / stop circuit for Conveyor and Vacuum and a Safety circuit with E-Stops.
Normally configured for single phase supply, however 3 phase is possible.
Our conveyors are solidly constructed from welded steel frames, you can safely stand on them! We do not use flimsy aluminium frame materials
The pictured model is 2.5m long , with a nominal frame size for 500mm width. It is coupled to our 1.25m x 500mm Flat bed Vacuum Conveyor together with a MFT350ip Friction Feeder, and UES Hotmelt system
