    Chain Conveyor Tension

    Hello

    I design a chain conveyor to pull 12 carts that linked together. the conveyor installed at the end of line and pull all of the linked carts. The schematic of this as attached. I consider a tension at the end of conveyor but it didn't worked correctly. Now i want to know how i can solve the problem. I think that the position of tension is not correct. The chain conveyor used in the assembly line. the worker installed parts on the cart.

    You need to have all the carts traveling on a floor rail arrangement. The purpose of the chain CONVEYOR needs to have dogs/ locks mounted on the chain to engage with the carts at a similar pitch. The chain CONVEYOR should be profiled like a caterpillar drive and its length limited to the pitch of the carts. As one cart leaves the caterpillar chain CONVEYOR the next engages. This arrangement should solve your problem.

    Dear Mr. Karrimore

    As you mention, in designed system all of the carts travel on the floor and chain have dogs attachment to engage with the carts. this system work as you explained. my question is about tension of this system for absorbed shock.

    Take Up Thy Bed...

    Your answer lies in the take-up arrangement, pure and simple.
    It appears you forgot to make appropriate adjustment although I cannot foresee how worker introduced parts can introduce shock which is sufficient to cause trouble.
    I suggest you look elsewhere for the source of trouble::: after you have introduced some float into the take up!

    Dear John

    Thanks for your attention.
    In this system when the conveyor push the skids, the chain strand between pusher dog and drive sprocket is under tension. So the spring is located at the end of conveyor don't sense this tension. Moreover i think the chain strand at the rerun and end of conveyor loose.
    I think the best way is used tension at the drive station. But given that at this position we have bearing block, drive sprocket and the other part i don't know how i can do that. So if you have a suggestion please help me.

    Best Regards
