The Quickdraw® conveyor system from MagStar Technologies (Hopkins, MN) is designed for lab and cleanroom environments. It stands 2-7/8" and is only 1-1/2" wider than the transport tray. It uses sealed ball bearings rather than belts. The unit allows for variable speed, bi-directional transport, changeable layouts, and precision stopping for tight-tolerance processing. Integrated sensors provide users with conveyor control within specific conveyor zones. The control system is self-contained with plug-and-go operation so no PLC is needed for setup or operation. Sensor, logic, and motor controls are built into the rail for easy access.
