PowerLine

Powerline is the KNAPP group’s pallet conveyor system.

Product description

Efficient processes for pallets

 

Powerline is the KNAPP group’s pallet conveyor system. It forms the basis of efficient processes and is 100 % in tune with the demands of modern logistics centres. Maximum efficiency, highest possible availability and cost-effectiveness are Powerline hallmarks. Powerline is an all-in-one conveyor system comprising mechatronic components and control elements, and is available with roller conveyors or chain conveyors. Powerline covers all logistical functions from conveying, transferring and diverting, to zero pressure accumulation.

 

Powerful and versatile

 

Powerline is designed for a wide range of applications in order fulfilment and distribution centres.

 

Load carriers   Pallets (EUR-pallet, Chep, plastic, etc.)
Weight of transport object   Up to 1,300 kg
Performance   Up to 240 pallets per hour

 

The individual types of Powerline components are available in different nominal widths and roller pitches.

Scalable modular design

 

Powerline is modular in design and uses the principle of common parts, meaning it can be adapted precisely in terms of size and investment. Powerline combines efficiency and flexibility: using intelligent motors and a new pneumatic accumulation system, every location can be switched on and off individually. Combined with a smart control system, an accumulation line can be established with a single drive unit. The integrated EcoModeallows Powerline to fulfil even the strictest demands for energy efficiency.

Using modern electrical and control concepts, with KiSoft SCADA a full visualization of Powerline is possible down to the level of the sensors and actuators. KiSoft SCADA is therefore the ideal complement to Powerline and supports plannable, proactive maintenance that is appropriate to the level that the conveyor system is used. Powerline is perfectly integrated into the KNAPP conveyor system product line and can be easily combined with other systems, such as the Open Shuttles or the Streamline conveyor systems.

 

Advantages of Powerline

 

  • Intelligent control concept: proven AS-i bus system
  • Full visualization: with KiSoft SCADA up to sensor and actuator level
  • Scalable: precise adaptation in size and investment thanks to its modular design
  • Powerful and versatile: conveys various types of pallets (EUR-pallet, Chep, plastic, etc.)
  • Process innovation: fast installation and startup using the modular system and a maximum degree of pre-assembly
  • Energy efficient: maximum availability and performance with minimum energy consumption thanks to the revolutionary accumulation stop concept. The drive unit uses soft-start function; speed controlled through NFC; integrated EcoMode.
  • Easy maintenance: stream-lined spare parts management thanks to parts commonality; plannable maintenance with complete visualization provided by KiSoft SCADA
  • Cost effectiveness: direct integration of work stations without separate drive units
