LOGO!MAT Walk-On - Series: Manual Docking Cart


Manual Docking Cart 1
Manual Docking Cart 2

The LOGO!MAT Walk-On Manual Docking Cart is our design for manual pull off and re-entries of pallets within a conveyor system. Especially in large and complex layouts and processes there are needs to take parts to different areas for repair after a failed testing. Those parts have to be re-introduced into the line to be tested again.

The Walk-On Manual Cart is based on a piece of low profile gravity conveyor track that can be moved around on lockable caster wheels. The height of the Manual Cart is set to the conveyor height where the Cart will dock to and the handle has adjustable grips for the operator. 

An integrated docking mechanism interfaces with a counterpart on the conveyor line and locks the Cart in position. It also automatically releases mechanical stops on the Cart to allow the pallet flow. By releasing a mechanical indexing plunger the Cart can be taken off the track and the mechanical locks directly block the lines. The presence of a Manual Docking Cart can be sensed by an inductive sensor mounted to the stationary conveyor track.

A bi-directional Docking Cart with two docking devices is also available to allow the reintroduction of a pallet in the same orientation as it was removed wiithout rotating it.
