Streamline

The newest generation of conveyor systems

 

Product description

 

Streamline is the KNAPP group’s container and carton conveyor system. Serving as the main artery of the warehouse, it handles important tasks in an intralogistics system and supplies the right goods to wherever they are needed. Streamline is an all-in-one conveyor system containing both mechatronic components and control elements and comes in roller conveyor and belt conveyor designs. It is not only characterized by a high level of performance but also stands out in terms of variability, profitability, reliability, ease of maintenance and efficiency. In addition to that, it can be used in a very versatile way throughout the picking and distribution centers.

Structure and function

 

Streamline is modular in design, using component building blocks that share common parts. There is at least one component available for each logistical function. The modular system delivers maximum scalability, therefore, the conveyor system can be precisely adapted to size and investment. Moreover, this reduces the realization time and ensures an easy expansion in the future. The end-to-end parts commonality of the system enables simplified spare parts management and maintenance.

 

 

 

Energy efficiency

 

While developing Streamline conveyors a special focus was put on energy efficiency. All individual components of Streamline are able to optimize energy consumption and can be configured to specific performance requirements. Every part of the system is equipped with a hybrid drive technology which combines a three-phase motor drive and motorized roller drive to optimize energy consumption. In addition to that, a start-to-demand technology, meaning conveyors are just started in case of a transport order, enables the system to save energy while providing maximum reliability.

 

 

 

Intelligent technology

 

With the help of KiSoft SCADA, the use and handling of the system can be simplified. This modern technology is able to completely visualize the entire system with the help of sensors and actuators. Furthermore, transparency down to the individual input and output elements allows preventive maintenance to avoid errors and fast troubleshooting. Additionally, the implemented easyUse concept is used to decrease training time and error rate.
