Customized conveyor technology: Flexible or rigid

TRAPO AG grew up with competence in conveyor technology — to this day we supply tailor-made elements of conveyor technology for every task in order to optimize the flow of materials in production and intralogistics.

The success story of TRAPO AG began in 1957 with the invention of the all-round roller by the company founder and pioneer Karl Stumpf. For the first time, the all-side roller made it possible to move heavy unit loads manually, which saved energy.

Already in the 70s the company changed from a pure manufacturer of conveyor technology components to a manufacturer of large systems. In the 90s TRAPO AG established itself as a partner of the industry for special systems. The slogan "more than conveyor technology" was added to the logo and explained the change in content and orientation: TRAPO is a renowned specialist in the development, design, production and commissioning of conveyor technology for every application.

The 24V motorized roller is perfectly tailored to the needs of intralogistics. A further plus: The rollers convey in an energy-saving manner, whisper-quiet, with low wear and in addition, space, as no drive station is required.

An internal proving ground* in the TRAPO pilot plant in which the trendsetting 24 volt technology was tested in roller conveyors verifies: Compared with 400V drive systems, employing TRAPO 24V technology saves 59 per cent energy.

*In test: unique to the sector TRAPO compared under real conditions not buffer areas and conveying technology with central drive but buffer buffer areas 24 DC with buffer areas 400AC. The actual consumed electrical power was measured.

On request also food-safe

All conveyors can be manufactured in our in-house high-grade steel production facility in a stainless version. For applications in high care- and wet-room areas protected systems are available for the motor rollers: optionally an IP66-certified seal (dust-tight and against high-pressure hose water) or a version for frozen applications up to -30˚C.

Your advantages

  • space-saving
  • protruding motor components belong to the past, as the motor roller replaces the conveyor roller
  • extendable by modules
  • energy-saving conveying
  • simple, quick installation, no specialist electricians required
  • whisper-quiet
  • low-maintenance and low wear
  • prompt product availability

Ideal area of application are buffer lines in which an optimum fill-level of the conveying line is to be reached in the waiting position.

With zero accumulation pressure, conveying goods are buffered which should not be subjected to any impact loads. For buffer line operation no drive is required. The drive of the zero accumulation pressure conveying technology can in the simplest of cases take place autonomously by means of the integrated logic and as such, completely without SPS.

TRAPO technology turns out to be a true heavyweight: proving grounds stand the test with double the weight of comparable competitive products - with up to 200 kilograms.

The roller conveyor systems are easily extendable by module. The innovative 24V technology is employed in belt conveyors and transfers at TRAPO AG.

Modular belt conveyor – new standards in conveying technology

Set new standards with the new modular belt conveyor.

The so far already impressive TRAPO AG range is being further expanded through the development of a new conveyor.

At 10m wide and almost 100m long we have, in accordance with the chain supplier, built the world’s largest modular belt conveyor.

This type of modular belt conveyor is perfectly suited to application in flow production. The personnel accompany the components on the belt and assemble the products there in the flow. Through the flow production on the modular belt conveyor assembly is characterized by an optimal structure and transparency.

The assembly times become significantly shorter. Deadlines become easier to plan and secure. A further advantage of our large assembly belt lies in the simple material feed and in the simplified intralogistics planning.

Transfer tables – Innovation for rapid belt change

Save time with TRAPO.

The time periods within which investments need to pay for themselves become ever shorter.

It is therefore all the more important that machinery and conveyors function reliably and can be repaired most promptly in case of a malfunction.

These tasks are frequently complex where transfer tables are involved which often need to be largely dismantled. This ever more important requirement has been met by TRAPO AG by the development of a new transfer table.

This table can be integrated into many roller conveyors. As standard, this is featured as a flat-belt transfer table. The application of roller chains however is also possible. After loosening just 4 screws a conveying element can be dismantled.

The belt is automatically slackened by loosening the screws and can be removed without any further effort and be replaced by a new belt. The tension of the new belt is performed automatically by tightening the 4 screws. The screws are accessible from above and are driven into a sleeve.

Conveyor technology: Success story All-side roller

Until today, the all-side roller can be found in many applications: TRAPO AG, for example, falls back on this outstanding development when presenting the OMNI CON® - and thus the use of the successful all-side roller in perfection. The OMNI CON® completes the overall portfolio for perfect material flow: With a maximum of flexibility, speed and precision, it moves objects simultaneously and yet independently of each other, in order to position them upstream of the high-performance layer palletizer HLP 6000 in a layer with any layer pattern in a product-friendly manner.

Also the Mecanum wheels of the Automated Guided Vehicles write another chapter of this success story: They enable the TRAPO Transport Shuttle to move in the direction of the surface and thus save space and time.


Operating autonomously: Advantages of the TRAPO Transport Shuttle

Operating autonomously: Advantages of the TRAPO Transport Shuttle

To meet the required flexibility in production and logistics, we are presenting our shuttle generation. As TRAPO Transport Shuttle (TTS series) and TRAPO Warehouse Shuttle (TWS series) the driverless transport systems can be used in combination: for precise, time-saving transfers and optimal use of the storage area.

The TTS can be configured according to a modular principle: Sizes, energy transmission and storage as well as drive and navigation can be combined as required. There is also the option of adding customer-specific superstructures, for example with a lifting function, conveyor systems or robots.


We are manufacturer of the largest conveyor belt

TRAPO AG's considerable range of products is decisively extended by the development of the modular belt conveyor.

With a width of 10m and a length of almost 100m we have built the largest modular belt conveyor in the world according to the chain supplier. This type of modular belt conveyor is ideally suited for use in a continuous production line. The employees travel on the belt and assemble the products in the flow.

Due to the assembly line production on the modular belt conveyor, the assembly receives an optimal structure and transparency. The assembly times are considerably shorter. Deadlines become easier and more reliable to plan. A further advantage of our large assembly line is the easier feeding of the material and the simplified planning in intralogistics.
