Conveyor station

Conveyor station


Transporting workpieces from one manufacturing station to the next is an important task in production. In the real world, driverless transport systems, forklift trucks and above all conveyor belts are used for this purpose. The conveyor in MecLab® allows realistic simulation of an industrial workpiece transport system. The drive motor can run forwards and backwards; workpieces can be detected with the sensors and distinguished from one another. The solenoid allows workpieces to be separated or rejected onto the slide.
