Wolfratshausen – With the ZEL480 model, WEBER Schraubautomaten GmbH presents an especially powerful and robust variant of its step conveyors. The new ZEL480 variant is suitable in particular for processing large fasteners and components, while offering customers the same benefits as the existing ZEL240 and ZEL360 designs. The ZEL480 step conveyor is now available and can be used for automatically feeding screws with a head diameter of up to 32 mm, a shaft diameter of up to 16 mm and a shaft length of up to 120 mm – a 40 percent increase in the maximum possible component size compared to the smaller ZEL360.
The demand for larger automatic feed system has arisen in recent years in particular in the automotive industry. The expanding e-mobility market and the consequently growing number of installed batteries have generated substantial demand for systems such as the ZEL480. Battery packs in particular are usually mounted with larger fasteners. This is an essential area of application for the ZEL480.
