Sensors have to be installed in the dedicated holders. Cables have to be protected against abrasion and accidental removal. Pay attention in the choice of sensors to have the right switching distance and the suitable size. The controls of the sensors and the used logic can influence the function and performance of the LOGO!MAT Cushioned Stop Unit dramatically.

This is the responsibility of the operating company.

 


The mechanical locking should never be used with pneumatic operation of the Stop Unit. This causes damage or malfunction.
 
With the mechanical locking device, you will be able to keep the stopper piston in the lower position to move pallets manually on the roller conveyor or to perform test runs. If the stop piston is pushed down manually and the locking device is engaged, the stop pin will stay in its lower position. To release the piston, the stop pin has to be pushed down while the locking device is pulled out. Attention must be paid that the locking device remains safely in a 90 degree turned, extended and locked position. An engagement of the locking device in the upper position of the Stop Unit leads to a blockade of the stop piston and doesn’t allow reaching its lower end position. In this case pallets don’t get released and the locking device breaks.
 
LOGOMAT recommends removing the mechanical lock for production.

Stop Unit, cushioned: %Roller Configuration


The roller configuration in the area of the Stop Unit is very important to guarantee a continuous flow after releasing the pallet from the Stop Unit. Rollers can be shifted in increments of 57 mm; stub rollers can be used for additional support of the pallet. Sensor holders or RFID tag brackets should be arranged in the roller spacing to avoid stub rollers in these areas. Attention should be taken to have at least three (3) full rollers (not stub rollers!!) in contact to the stopped pallet when the pallet is in its end position of the cushioned Stop Unit. For better performance of the pallet it is more effective to use additional full rollers to add friction surface than increasing the friction of fewer rollers.
 
The following pictures show typical roller configurations in the area of the Stop Unit with the offered roller spacing.

Only authorized personnel are permitted to install a Stop Unit. Before the Stop Unit can be fitted, you should unpack, clean and look for any damage. If there is damage, document and repair before starting the installation.
 
Attention must be paid to the positioning of the Stop Unit. There must be at least a distance of 20 mm between the adjoining roller (outer diameter) and the Stop Unit body in the end and home position to avoid possible pinch points.
 
A displacement of a Stop Unit can also be done according to the following installation instructions:
  1. Disconnect the Stop Unit from the compressed air supply to avoid injuries.
  2. Remove the mounting clamps from one side of the base plate and loosen the other side slightly.
  3. Place the Stop Unit into the lower slot of the extrusion with the remaining two clamps. Lightly tighten the clamps and install the remaining mounting clamps on the other side. Adjust the unit and partially tighten the clamping bolts. Please pay attention to the direction of the conveyor flow (note at the drive station) and the arrow at the Stop Unit housing that the operation direction will fit to the flow direction.
  4. Check the position of the Stop Unit by pushing a pallet against the Stop Unit until the stop pin locks the pallet into position and the stop is at its cushioned end position of the horizontal movement.
  5. Remove pallet and adjust the Stop Unit to achieve the required pallet stop location, if necessary.
  6. Once the position is correct, completely tighten all four clamping bolts and connect the pneumatic air supply tubes. (Attention must be paid to the correct locking of the clamping bolts to the conveyor profile.)

  7. Check the ease of movement of the horizontal stop movement and adjust the roller con-figuration if necessary, to avoid crushing or collisions with the rollers.
  8. Establish the pneumatic and electrical connections according to the provided schematics.
  9. Check and adjust the installed cushioned Stop Unit in such a way that the function and the performance of the cushioned Stop Unit matches to the pallet weight and conveyor speed.
Before the Stop Unit gets pneumatically operated, it must be affixed to the frame of the conveyor with 4 mounting clamps. Pay special attention that all 4 clamping bolts are well seated in the aluminum extrusion and create a slight divot in the extrusion.

LOGO!MAT L - Series (LOGOMAT)

LOGO!MAT L - Series


The LOGO!MAT L - Series Conveyor System is a robust, palletized friction roller conveyor with an anodized aluminum frame. All pre-assembled powered conveyor sections are driven by a geared motor and one tangential chain. Corners and diverts combine straight sections with just a few extra components. The entire system offers high flexibility in reconfiguring the layout with little effort. All stations can be located or inserted almost everywhere. The full rollers in that area can be replaced by stub rollers without any special tools within a couple minutes.

Our modular assembly conveyor systems are based on standard mechanical and electrical components and can be combined with all customized possibilities. The L - Series is popular and known for its high availability, low maintenance requirements, unsurpassed reliability and long life within the production environment.
