Setting a simple linear conveyor

Hi,

I'm having a hard time setting a simple linear conveyor for parts. Can someone guide me how to do this?

When i'm setting a skid conveyor it works perfect but i have trouble with part conveyor.

I work on Process Simulate 12.0TR1.

 

Kind regards,

AK.

Hi AK,

what is exactly the problem?

Did you "Define conveyable part"?

Is the ancor frame of the part in contact with the conveying surface?

Hi Guido,
thanks for your reply.
I do define part as conveyable and i think conveying frame of the part is in contact with conveying surface.
I guess signal connection is the problem.

Can you show me step-by-step how to correctly define ordinary conveyor?

Hello , 

 

 

After your conveyor is in the study , go to CEE tab and acces "Define As Linear Conceptual Conveyor " .

Insert the parameters that you desire for your conveyor and make sure that " Skid Conveyor " is not checked . 

After your conveyor was defined you have to check the parts and make sure that they are defined as conveyable part and they are imported as products and not resources . If you start the simulation and the conveyor is not moving the part , try to raise the conveyor tolerance which you set at previous point ( in conveyor parameters). 

Remember , the conveyor will work only if you set as the currrent operation the highest one in hierarchy from Operation tree.

Have a good day .
