QC Industries Doubles Conveyor Warranty to 10 Years

Mon, 23 Sep 2013 09:00:00 EST

QC Industries is now offering to double customers’ warranties to 10 years when they register their conveyors online.

“Our conveyors have always had a reputation for quality, so we’re excited to double our warranty coverage to 10 years,” said Dave Endres, Vice President and General Manager of QC Industries. “The 10 year warranty is another sign of our desire to reduce our customers’ maintenance costs in the long term.”

The new 10 year warranty doubles the benefits of the company’s existing five year warranty. Customers can double their warranty by registering online at qcconveyors.com/serial. The benefit applies both to new conveyors and retroactively to those purchased within the past ten years.

In addition to doubling their warranty, registration entitles customers to access the company’s Conveyor Configurator, an online tool for configuring and quoting conveyors. They’ll also have access to all their past orders with the ability to look up maintenance manuals and videos and order replacement parts.

QC Industries Introduces Online Conveyor Configuration Tool

Tue, 07 Feb 2012 14:16:00 EST

QC Industries recently released a new online tool for quoting and configuring low profile conveyors. The system is first-of-its-kind in the conveyor industry, allowing customers to configure complete conveyor systems through an easy-to-use online interface.

The QC Industries Conveyor Configurator allows customers to customize conveyor details — ranging from width and length to motor sizing — with the help of an intelligent assistant. Selections are guided by answering a series of questions to determine the right conveyor for the customer’s application.

Complete systems including drives, mounts, guide rails, accessories and stands can be configured with just a few clicks. Each selection is checked for compatibility to ensure proper fit and sizing. The checks follow a series of engineer-developed algorithms that check each component and suggest corrections when necessary.

Multiple conveyors of different types and sizes can easily be configured on the same quote and then sent to the customer’s local distributor to be quoted, eliminating time-consuming phone calls and potential mistakes due to misunderstandings.

The interface is available 24 hours a day, 365 days a year to allow customers to request detailed quotes in a way that fits their schedules. Quotes are usually returned within one business day.

Once a conveyor has been configured, customers can download all the associated drawings, CAD models and specifications in one convenient package, allowing them to integrate it into their designs quickly.

QC Industries' Conveyor Configurator is available at http://qcconfig.com.

Nosebar Tail Now Available for QC Industries’ Automation Series Conveyors

Mon, 10 Aug 2009 10:10:00 EST

QC Industries’ new Automation Series low profile belt conveyors are now available with a nosebar tail. It improves transfers of small parts between two conveyors or other integrated machinery.

The nosebar tail offers a slim 11mm outer belt diameter, that, when placed end to end, reduces the gap between conveyors. With a smaller gap, it is easier for small parts to pass across the gap without becoming trapped.

This new option builds on QC Industries’ Tension Release Tail by directly replacing the tail idler pulley. This maintains the push-button ease-of-use of the Tension Release Tail, which flips up and relieves tension for belt changes or under-belt cleaning.

In most cases a nosebar tail can be added to an existing conveyor without even removing the belt. It is fully compatible with QC Industries’ standard MAE white urethane belt, as well as a host of additional belts with special capabilities such as high friction or accumulation.

The nosebar tail is available for all standard Automation Series conveyor widths, which range from 2” to 24”. It is also compatible with both pushing and pulling applications. It is capable of speeds up to 125 feet per minute.

QC Industries’ Automation Series low profile belt conveyors are used in a wide variety of applications including packaging, automation, assembly, medical product and device manufacturing, material handling, manufacturing, and more.

Pivot™ Drive Rotates to Almost Any Position

Thu, 16 Apr 2009 10:10:00 EST

QC Industries’ new Automation Series low profile belt conveyors offer Pivot rotatable drives that can be quickly and easily rotated to almost any position as application requirements change.

Pivot drives can be positioned to avoid product on the conveyor belt or obstructions caused by integrated machines. When necessary, the drive can be rotated to a new position simply by loosening two set screws, rotating the drive and retightening the screws. A knurled collar locks the drive into the desired position.

When the Pivot drive is rotated below the conveyor, the belt is the highest point on the conveyor, allowing overhanging product to pass easily across the entire length of the conveyor.

A timing belt inside the guard transfers torque from the motor to the conveyor’s drive pulley. The Pivot drive package is compatible with any standard QC Industries AC or DC gearmotor, including compact and quiet brushless DC motors. They are capable of belt speeds up to 400 feet per minute.

Pivot drives are available on any AS40 End Drive conveyor and are compatible with all standard QC Industries side rails and guides and with both flat and v-guided belts.

QC Industries’ low profile belt conveyors are used in a wide variety of applications including packaging, automation, assembly, medical product and device manufacturing, material handling, manufacturing, and more.

Tension Release Tail Offers Fast, Easy Belt Changes

Mon, 09 Mar 2009 10:10:00 EST

–QC Industries new Automation Series low profile belt conveyors feature a first of its kind Tension Release Tail that makes belt changes and under-belt cleaning fast and easy.

QC Industries’ Tension Release Tail operates at the push of a button to relieve tension on the belt, quickly flipping up and out of the way. No tools are required, making it easy for an operator to release the tension for cleaning under the belt. The tail reseats, reapplying tension, with a gentle push.

Belt changes are simplified; in many cases the belt can be removed and replaced without tools. This feature reduces downtime and maintenance expenditures.

Unlike competing conveyors, the unique design of the Tension Release Tail retains all tension and tracking adjustments when tension is relieved and reapplied. To relieve tension in competing conveyors, the same adjustments used for tension and tracking must be undone, requiring them to be readjusted each time tension is reapplied. QC Industries’ Tension Release tail uses a completely separate mechanism for relieving the tension than it uses for making tension and tracking adjustments.

The Tension Release Tail is standard on all Automation Series conveyors, including AS40 End Drive and AS65 Center Drive conveyors. It is compatible with all standard QC Industries side rails and guides and with both flat and v-guided belts.

QC Industries’ low profile belt conveyors are used in a wide variety of applications including packaging, automation, assembly, medical product and device manufacturing, material handling, manufacturing, and more.

Privately held QC Industries is based in a state-of-the-art 55,000 square foot facility located in Cincinnati, Ohio and is proud to be a lean manufacturer that has been a leading manufacturer of low profile belt conveyors since 1981.

QC Industries' New Automation Series Conveyors Offer Versatility, High Performance

Mon, 09 Feb 2009 11:30:00 EST

Cincinnati, OH (February 9, 2009) – QC Industries will introduce their new Automation Series AS40 and AS65 low profile belt conveyors tomorrow at WestPack in Anaheim, California. Automation Series conveyors offer high speeds with a single-piece extruded aluminum frame and feature easy belt changes, unique rotatable drives and a movable center drive designed with maximum versatility in mind. The unique Pivot™ rotatable drive technology on AS40 end drive conveyors allows the drive to be quickly rotated in the field to almost any position to meet changing application requirements and avoid conflicts with other machinery. AS65 center drive conveyors feature a below-belt drive that can be positioned at any point along the length of the conveyor, allowing a better fit with integrated machinery. A simple, push-button tension release mechanism alleviates tension on the belt for fast, easy belt changes and under belt cleaning. A gentle push reseats the tension release mechanism with proper tension and tracking retained. The conveyors use sealed, deep-groove ball bearings. The rigid, single-piece aluminum frame includes tee slots for rapid stand and accessory mounting. Conveyors 18” wide and wider feature a strengthened multi-piece aluminum and steel frame. A wide variety of sides, guides, stands and accessories are available. Drive packages include DC and AC motors in both standard- and heavy-duty models with a variety of mounting options. Automation Series conveyors are extremely efficient, requiring very little torque beyond the initial load at startup. A crowned pulley ensures proper belt tracking. V-Guide belts are available for applications that require it — such as reversing and side discharging — without changing any conveyor components. More than 50 belt styles are available, ranging from multi-purpose and accumulation belts to anti-static and color contrasting specialty belts. Automation Series conveyors are designed to handle high speeds up to 400 feet per minute. They handle loads up to 120 lbs. Widths are available in increments from 2” to 24” and lengths from 18” to 13’ for single-piece frames and 14’ to 25’ for multi-piece frames. They feature a low 1.95" profile. Their modular design allows the conveyor to be easily extended or shortened as application requirements change. As with all QC Industries conveyors, Automation Series conveyors feature a Five Year Warranty.

Lube-for-Life Bearings Make Conveyors Maintenance-Free

Tue, 23 Oct 2007 10:30:00 EST

Cincinnati, OH – QC Industries has replaced their standard bearings with Lube-for-Life Bearings featuring a permanently applied Micro-Poly Lubricant specially designed to meet the unique needs of their conveyors. With this change, QC Industries’ conveyors are now maintenance-free. This new greaseless design eliminates the need to periodically lubricate the bearings and the possibility of grease escaping the bearings and contacting product on the surface of the conveyor. In addition, the bearings are sealed to prevent contamination from debris, significantly extending their life. These features result in long-term cost savings through reduced conveyor maintenance. The Micro-Poly Lubricant is comprised of polymers and oils. The oils retained by this porous structure continually lubricate the bearing surfaces — even those in hard-to-reach places — through capillary action. The precision roller bearings provide an increased surface area which offers greater load capacities and longer bearing life. All QC Industries’ Lube-for-Life Bearings are approved by the USDA and FDA for H-1 food processing applications, where there may be incidental contact between food and the bearing. They contain corrosion inhibitors, anti-oxidants and an EP (extreme pressure) additive. Lube-for-Life Bearings are now standard on QC Industries’ 125 Series Belt Conveyors, 125Z Series Angled Frame Conveyors, 250 Series Center/End Drive Conveyors, InnerDrive Conveyors and Flextrac Plastic Chain Conveyors. They are also available in a retrofit kit for existing conveyors. QC Industries conveyors can be adapted to virtually any application, including packaging, automation, medical product and device manufacturing, assembly, material handling, manufacturing, clean rooms, and more. Privately held QC Industries is based in a state-of-the-art 55,000 square foot facility located in Cincinnati, Ohio and is proud to be a lean manufacturer that has been a leading manufacturer of low profile conveyors since 1981.

QC Industries Extends Warranty to 5 Years

Mon, 16 Jul 2007 09:00:00 EST

– QC Industries recently extended the warranty on all new conveyors to five years, making it the best warranty in the low profile conveyor industry. This is another step in QC Industries’ initiative to reduce customer maintenance costs.

"The five year warranty is our way of demonstrating QC Industries' commitment to quality over the long term. In our eyes, the length of the warranty is directly related to the quality of the conveyor," said Dave Endres, QC Industries' general manager.

QC Industries conveyors are built to withstand the rigors of heavy use in a wide variety of industries. They are built of components created to exacting specifications on state-of-the-art machinery. Belts are pre-tensioned at the factory using a unique eccentric system that ensures proper belt tensioning — even after belt changes. The steel straight-knurl drive pulley is designed to prevent belt wear. QC Industries’ lean manufacturing procedures require a rigorous quality inspection process prior to shipping.

The full warranty details are available at http://www.qcindustries.com/warranty.

In addition to the five year warranty, QC Industries has also worked to reduce customer maintenance costs by moving to Lube-for-Life bearings. The Lube-for-Life bearings make QC Industries’ conveyors virtually maintenance free.

QC Industries’ 125Z Series Conveyors for Elevation Changes in Tight Quarters

Thu, 04 May 2006 08:00:00 EST

Cincinnati, OH – The 125Z Series line of conveyors from QC Industries provides tight product transfer and the ability to fit within space constrained areas. Fixed angles ranging from 30° to 90° minimize the number of required components (and their costs), while providing the highest load carrying capacity in the industry. When coupled with their low profile (1.89”), these features make 125Z Series low-profile conveyors ideal for use wherever product needs to be moved and raised (or lowered), including manufacturing plants, automation cells, packaging lines, metal stamping and precision manufacturing environments, and more. The unique Z-Track™ allows users to gain control over belt tracking at the angles of incline or decline. This component adjusts rapidly for belt installation and tracking adjustments then locks in the tracking setting to ensure long belt life. Belt widths of 8” to 24” are available, in lengths up to 20 feet, with load carrying capacity of up to 125 pounds, and speeds to 225 fpm. A unique snap-in sealed tail assembly allows belts to be changed in less than 5 minutes (regardless of belt length or width) using standard hand tools and without re-tracking the belt. Permanent belt tensioning ensures a long service life for belts and bearings while moving the heaviest loads in low-profile conveyors. Lubrication of drive elements is achieved with zero downtime. Five standard configurations are available to meet any need. The “Z” configuration moves product horizontally to an incline (or decline) and back to horizontal again. The “L” configuration moves horizontally to an incline and the “R” moves horizontally to a decline. Unique to QC Industries, the “N” configuration moves product on an incline, then horizontally to a decline. The “U” is a decline to horizontal to incline conveyor. Each is available with a variety of angles, section lengths and widths, making this the most versatile angled frame conveyor available. Conveyor frames are laser cut from 10-gauge steel which is then powder coated. High tensile strength cleated belts, with superior strength-to-weight ratio, are available in multiple cleat styles and sizes to suit any application. Cleats are high-frequency welded onto the belt surface at customer-specified spacing for optimum performance. Corrugated sidewalls can be added to the belt for maximum part containment. Corrosion resistant and magnetic conveyors are also available. A wide variety of accessories, including sides, guides, mounts, stands, drive packages and controls allow the 125Z Series conveyors to be adapted to virtually any application. Automation accessories available include transfer plates, diverters, nose bars, adjustable stops, turning wheels, and an adjustable hopper. For installations where it is necessary to show that conveyor belts are running, motion detection is available. An industry leading manufacturer of low-profile conveyors, QC Industries products are used in a wide array of industries, including packaging, stamping, medical product & device manufacturing, assembly, material handling, manufacturing, clean rooms, and more. Privately held QC Industries is based in a state-of-the-art 55,000 square foot facility in Cincinnati, Ohio which houses their lean manufacturing, engineering, customer service, sales, and administrative functions. They have been supplying low-profile conveyors since 1981, making this their 25th anniversary. For more information on QC Industries products or services, visit them online at www.qcindustrie[...]
