The Pax conveyor is specifically designed for on-bolster, under-die part and scrap removal. The “low-profile” design enables it to fit where many conveyors will not. Designed by a metal stamper, the conveyor is built to survive the rough metal stamping environment.

Pax EGD Oscillating “Shaker” Conveyors

Pax EGD Conveyors

Pax EGD Conveyors

The Pax EGD conveyor is an electrically driven, oscillating type conveyor that utilizes a motorized, elliptical gear drive (EGD) to produce a reciprocating, varying acceleration motion that conveys parts and scrap out of the press area. Utilizing elliptical gears provides an extremely reliable, high torque design that has 4 times the acceleration rate of a standard linkage design. This higher acceleration provides a higher conveying speed at a lower motor speed, which results in increased unit life. Other key features of this product include:

  • No air consumption
  • No springs
  • Quick and easy tray attachment
  • Flexible mounting arrangement

Standard System Features Include:

•   No Air Consumption

The EGD conveyor is electrically driven which means that it does not have the high operating costs and on going maintenance issues that are associated with many air driven conveyors.

•   Conveying Speed of Up to 25 Feet Per Minute

On air driven conveyors, the user will typically reduce the conveyor’s speed to the absolute minimal acceptable level for each application in an effort to reduce air usage and to extend air seal life. However, since these are not relevant issues on an electrically driven conveyor, the EGD conveyor is designed to run at the fixed speed that has been determined to be its ideal conveying speed.

•   Flexible Mounting Arrangement

There are four (4) 3/8”– 16 tapped holes located on the bottom of the EGD unit that can be utilized to attach the unit to one of Pax Products optional mounting brackets or to any other type of mounting arrangement.

•   Quick and Easy Tray Attachment

Trays are attached to the EGD Conveyor cross bar via quick connect brackets. These brackets, which are machined from Acetal material, are bolted to the sides of the conveyor tray and the tray then simply snaps in place over the round portion of the conveyor cross bar.

•   Low Maintenance

The EGD conveyor utilizes no springs and requires no ongoing maintenance. Refer to following section for more details on the system construction.

System Construction and Specifications:

Elliptical Drive

The EGD conveyor is driven by a set of elliptical (non-circular) gears. The first elliptical gear, which is driven at a constant speed by an electric motor, drives a second elliptical gear at a continuously changing speed. The two gears are in constant rolling contact and are bathed in oil inside of a sealed gear box. This design provides a maintenance free, high torque, varying speed transmission that provides an excellent conveying motion for the attached trays.

Guiding System

The conveyor crossbar is guided by four linear, sealed for life bearings that are spaced as far apart as possible in both the right-to-left and front-to-back directions. Although the bearings are sealed for life, Pax has arranged them so it is possible for the customer to easily grease them (at their discretion), which will further extend the bearing life in severe operating conditions.

Cross Bar

The rigidly designed steel cross bar can be provided in different length as defined in the option section of this proposal.

Quick Connect Tray Mounting Brackets

Each EGD conveyor is provided with three sets of quick connect tray mounting brackets. Each set includes two machined Acetal brackets and four ¼”-20 carriage bolts with nuts and washers. Additional bracket sets can be purchased as described in the options portion of this proposal.

EGD-75 Conveyor Mechanical Specifications:

  • Cross Bar Length: 24” to 72” (in 6” increments)
  • Maximum Total Tray Weight: 75 pounds
  • Maximum Part/Scrap Weight: 250 lbs (not including trays)
  • Dimensions of Drive Unit: 7″ high x 20″ wide x 15″ deep
  • Weight of Drive Unit: 90 pounds (not including cross bar or optional mounting bracket)
  • Conveying Speed: Up to 25 feet per minute
  • Conveying Direction: To change tray conveying direction: remove trays from crossbar, detach unit from press by removing the four mounting bolts on the bottom of the unit, turn unit 180°, reattach unit to press, and snap trays back onto crossbar.

EGD-75 Conveyor Electrical Specifications:

  • Motor Type: 1/3 hp DC Gearmotor
  • Voltage: 115 VAC, Single Phase, 60HZ (Contact Pax for alternate voltages).
  • Overload Protection: Fused
  • Electrical Connection: 3-pronged plug with a 7’ cord

PaxEGD-250 VFD Drive

PaxEGD-250 VFD Drive

This conveyor is designed to be a cost effective alternative to typical hinged belt and/or magnetic conveyors.  The design allows it to be mounted below a press and it will operate a single conveying tray that will convey material away from the conveyor drive.

  • 500 pound scrap weight
  • Speed up to 25 fpm
  • One piece tray instead of a belt eliminates expensive belt replacement and the potential for small scrap to get stuck
  • Ability to move magnetic and non-magnetic materials
  • Entire assembly mounted on a common base with tray size suited to the application
  • Elliptical drive mechanism attached to one side of the base
  • VFD drive

The Pax floor mount conveyor is often used in conjunction with a cleated belt conveyor to move scrap from floor level to a scrap bin.

Pax Drum Motor Conveyors

The Pax Model DMC “Drum Motor” Conveyor is designed for removing parts and scrap from dies. This low-maintenance conveyor utilizes a geared motor hermetically sealed inside a steel cylindrical tube. This technology eliminates the need for chains, sprockets and external motors.
