mk North America is a supplier of low profile aluminum framed conveyors. Offering more than 20 standard conveyor platforms, mk has a solution for nearly every industrial, manufacturing or assembly conveyor requirement. mk can customize conveyors to any customers requirements.
So when a global leader in automated material handling systems came to mk for handling conveyors between a robot and a buffering zone, mk was up to the task. Designing a three conveyor Ushaped system on mk’s GUFP 2000 flat belt conveyor platform allowed for flexibility. The GUFP 2000 is mk’s leading conveyor product line and offers the most drive and idler options in the industry. Combined with mk’s aluminum extrusion line, the engineers at mk were able to develop custom side rails to guide products around 90° corners. They also developed and designed, using mk extrusions, nesting plates for product placement as well as system supports and sensor and controls mounting.
Because mk stocks all of the components for accessories and conveyors, mk was able to deliver a complete solution for the right price and at the right time (leadtime was approximately four weeks). Working side by side with their customers, mk can participate in design reviews and developments.
