TS4 Plus Conveyors
The TS4 assembly conveyor is part of the larger family of TS (Transfer Systems) from Bosch Rexroth which include TS1 and TSplus. Like all TS products, the TS4 is a work-piece pallet based, non-synchronous, conveyor designed to improve manufacturing productivity and product quality while allowing for maximum assembly flexibility.
All components of the TS4 system are pre-engineered and modular. The system can be easily expanded, reconfigured or relocated as your needs change. You can phase in your investment as time and budget permit. Start with a simple conveyor for basic assembly and grow into a fully automated, progressive assembly system. As production requirements change, TS4 gives you the flexibility to add manual or automatic workstations.
Modularity also simplifies system design and assembly. As a result, you can be more responsive to changing market demands. Installation and maintenance are also simple – further reducing up-front as well as ongoing costs.
TS4 conveyors transport parts on workpiece pallets. The workpiece pallets (from 443 x 443 mm to 1243 x 1243 mm) ride on the surface of the conveying medium. This transport method has many advantages for product assembly applications, including:
Pallets can be positioned at workstations with a Rexroth Lift-Position Unit, permitting precision assembly operations.
Pallets can be tooled with fixtures to secure parts for manual or automated operations. Identification and data carrying devices (used to coordinate assembly sequences, identify model types, etc.) are also commonly mounted to pallets.
Pallets can be stopped on the leading or trailing edge – regardless of pallet orientation on the conveyor. Pallets can also be accumulated in queue and released one at a time.
