706 Lane St. Sandusky, Ohio 44870 www.lewcoinc.com areas and when that happens, they need a large amount of floor space." To accommodate both needs, Western proposed using Borroughs steel shelving mounted to the Borroughs Aisle-Saver mobile aisle system with a Wisconsin Bench Maple Butcher Block work surface mounted to the top of the shelving. This would allow the shelving to act as table tops while folding personnel parachutes but the mobile aisle system would allow the shelves to be easily slid out of the way when the time came to pack the larger container parachutes. The tracks of the mobile shelving, though, presented some logistical challenges. "The existing floor was concrete and irregular," says Neumann. "We laid out the tracks for the mobile system and in some areas the tracks raised 2 inches above the floor and in others just ¾ of an inch. It was a tripping hazard for people working in that area." To deal with the ergonomic issues that the soldiers already faced from spending so much time standing on the concrete, Western learned that the Army was already planning to put anti-fatigue matting in the area. But since the floor needed to be leveled anyway to prevent tripping over the mobile aisle tracks, the Western team had an idea. "We did some additional research and found a surface that is used in outdoor playgrounds and gymnasiums called Vitriturf Cushioned Seamless Flooring," says Neumann. "It's a rubber compound mixed with an epoxy that is put down with a half inch surface laid over the top so that it ends up resulting in a nice, hard cushioned floor surface." This solution not only solved the base's ergonomic concerns but it also leveled the floor to prevent PBR19 POWERED ROUND BELT DRIVEN CONVEYOR The Powered Round Belt Driven Conveyor is a X\PL[HUKLɉ JPLU[SP]LYVSSLYJVU]L`VYZ`Z[LT These systems are primarily suitable for lighter loads up to 75 pounds. Each roller is powered individually by a composite "O" ring or band with up to (16) rollers connected to a single ]ÅH[TV[VY^P[OPU[LNYH[LKJVU[YVSJHYKZ With the goal being simple to install, this conveyor is commonly used in zero pressure accumulation applications commonly integrated with pop-up transfers, curves, or spurs. POLY-V DRIVEN ROLLER CONVEYORS Poly V-belt Driven Roller Conveyors, commonly referred to as PLV, provides a positively driven live roller conveyor. Because of the positive Poly-V belt and Grooved hubs, it's an ideal choice for conveying heavy product which includes heavy packages, pallets, containers, drums and other unit loads. PLV19 is suitable for loads up to 200 lbs. and PLV25 is suitable for loads up to 2,500 lbs. In addition, it is very quiet, capable of higher speeds, and is less expensive than commonly selected chain driven live roller conveyors. All are supported by controls platform with decentralized drives HOW IT WORKS... - Zero Pressure Accumulation - Sortation of Products WHERE IT WORKS... - Parcel Handling Appliance Automotive Cabinetry & Furniture BENEFITS... - Easy and Fast Installation - Clean and Safe - Economical Transportation - Pallet Accumulation - Pallet Dispensing - Pallet Orientation - Pallet Staging - Pallet Transportation - Food & Beverage Manufacturing 6YKLY-\SÄSSTLU[ Aerospace - Warehousing & Distribution - Government Agencies & Military - Quiet ,ULYN`,ɉ JPLU[ Automated Production Continuous Operation Increased Productivity - Increased Worker Safety - Reduced Man Hours LEWCO inc. has a full line of conveying equipment to complete your system.
