The entire plant, which is about 26 m long and about 6 m wide, is based on 11 standard chain conveyors of the KF series from the Alfotec delivery program. Since five load carriers arranged one behind the other result in a total load of 22,000 kg per conveyor, the load-bearing and drive elements are designed to be correspondingly robust and resilient. Not only are the load carriers each supported by four heavy-duty 1-inch duplex chains, but the drives of each conveyor system are also correspondingly powerful at 7.5 kW.
The control system, also supplied by Alfotec, includes all necessary control and function-relevant elements, wired up to the terminal strip. For this purpose, covered steel cable ducts with cable protection were installed on the hall floor in the area of the conveyor system. As safety measures, the entrance and exit areas, among other things, were each provided with impact protection for the forklift trucks. In addition, the entire facility is secured against unauthorized access with a protective fence or light grids.
