Volkmann will showcase new variants of its VS series of vacuum conveyors featuring electric pump options at Pack EXPO 2012 Oct. 28-31. The conveyors can be viewed at Booth #E-7658 at McCormick Place in Chicago. These new pump options mount a purpose-designed electric switch box assembly (EPV) directly on the receiver.
Because the EPV includes a non-return valve and vacuum relief valve as standard, the unit can be coupled to any electrically driven vacuum pump assembly, providing greater flexibility for end users. Volkmann will also display a new PLC-based controller, the QX “quick exchange” patented filter system, and a full range of Multijector compressed air driven working conveyors.
