The contactless recognition of the belt position in the bucket elevators is realized with four belt edge distance sensors that are at- tached to either side of the bucket elevator, two at the head and two at the boot. They measure and communicate the distance between the passing buckets and the eleva- tor housing to the belt position indicator device. Using the belt position monitor, users can visu- alize the position of their belt in real-time outside the bucket eleva- tor housing and the belt's traveling behavior can be evaluated over the long-term. Warning and disconnec- tion settings are scalable and can be freely reconfigured. These capa- bilities also allow for preventative maintenance and planning main- tenance activities in advance, and a resulting reduction in downtime. The system can be easily installed to existing bucket elevators. BEUMER, Franklin Township, NJ 732-893-2800 beumergroup.com Ergonomic Vacuum Lifter Regardless of what they are made of – paper, plastic, fabric – or what they contain – flour, sand, pharmaceutical ingredients – all sacks are handled with ease with the ergonomic Vaculex vacuum lifter. No more heavy manual work such as lifting sacks for stacking on pallets, emp- tying into hoppers/feed stations, or feeding/loading/palletizing directly into or from a production line. More than one third of all workplace injuries are caused by manual handling. Yet processing staff are still often expected to lift sacks weighing 50-100 lb, risking developing mus- culoskeletal disorders (MSDs) such as pain and injuries to spine/back and shoulders, and repetitive strain injuries. Vaculex semi-automated lifters are designed to take the strain off workers. Enabling procedures to be carried out in space-restricted areas, the lifters offer flexible solu- tions where ceiling height, narrow and confined areas with limited available working space may be an issue.
