Model 656A

Fast Acting Plough

The Model 656A Fast Acting Belt Plough has been designed to handle and sort a wide range of products, with minimum impact to the bag during the plough divert operation. The unit has been designed to be used in conjunction with the Daifuku Logan range of Model 571 Belt and Queue Conveyors and with Model 688 Horizontal Claim Conveyors.

The Model 656A Belt Plough is of modular design enabling the unit to be supplied to suit the customer’s specific needs. These include variations in conveyor width, mounting method and various types of outfeed e.g. sort chute, gravity roller, petty wheel chute, powered belt conveyor etc.

General Construction

The motorised belt plough can be an independently floor mounted unit adjacent to the line conveyor for maximum stability. Alternatively it can be fixed direct to the conveyor frame.

The arm of the plough is of steel box section construction with a slider bed surface over which the plough belt runs. The diverter belt runs between vertically orientated drive and end pulleys. Belt tensioning is achieved by adjusting the end pulley.


TYPICAL ISOMETRIC VIEW OF
FAST ACTING BELT PLOUGH

The drive and end pulleys are fitted with grease packed precision bearings. The drive pulley is mounted on an extended drive shaft, which is driven by a geared motor, through a V belt drive arrangement.

The drive for the diverting motion is an integral geared motor mounted to the underside of the support frame. The motor is a 0.75 kW T.E.F.C., 1440 rpm. In certain applications the divert action may be controlled through AC Inverter.

A machined drive flange is fixed to the output shaft of the gearbox, which in turn is connected through a link bar mechanism to the main pivoting shaft of the plough arm. In this way the rotary action of the drive gearbox is transferred into the linear motion of the plough arm. The drive flange completes 360° of travel for one full plough cycle.

A proximity type electrical sensor will detect when the plough arm has reached the out position. When diverting multiple bags, this will be used to stop the plough in the ‘out’ position. A second sensor will also indicate when the arm has returned to the ‘home’ position, causing the arm to stop.
