Aluminum Frames in modern avancon Conveyor Systems

patented aluminum profile with snapp-in forms for bearing-housings and oher.


Profile for avancon conveyor-legs, cross-beam-profile for hangers and many other application

Aluminum is now the second most widely used metal in the world

after iron. This is because Aluminum has a unique combination

of attractive properties. Low weight (about 1/3 of steel;

even when constructed with thicker walls

it is mostly only 50 % of steel),

high strength, superior malleability, easy machining, excellent

corrosion resistance and good thermal and electrical

conductivity are amongst Aluminum’s most important properties.


Anodizing increases the thickness of the oxide layer and thus

improves the strength of the natural corrosion protection.

In addition it creates a fine silk-like mat surface and allows a

dynamic line design.


Since 1909 airplanes have been made of Aluminum.Now also the car industry has discovered this material. Also most Computers and Phones from Apple are made of anodized Aluminum.


The extrusion of Aluminum allowed us to form the patented avancon frame system elegant outside
streamlined, modern, aesthetic and clean...


We could form these patented rips inside these profiles of anodized Aluminum by the process of extrusion. These rips hold - thanks to the ingenious technique - all drive systems and control systems - as bearing housings, control elements, photo-sensors, AS-i cables. Everything is secure and clean just snapped-in without any tools.

Furthermore, these rips increase the mechanical strength and

torsion stiffness of the frame-platform.


The holes are punched (in CAD/CAM) only for the necessary requirement and are all closed with the snapped-in elements.


For avancon legs, crossbeams, hangers, supports and many other side-construction we use only one elegant anodized Aluminum profile. This looks very precious and aesthetic.
