  • Accessories

Coating:  Coating minimises the wear and tear of the bowl, reduces noise and damage to components. The coating material can be selected according to the application.

Base Plates:  Base plates enable easy mounting from above onto the machine bed. Integrated fixing locations are provided for control boxes. When using a top plate type UP, UL and UK, base plates are necessary.

Slot Sensors:  Slot sensors are mainly used for the recognition of components for minimum/maximum level control on an accumulating and linear track.

Stands and Top Plates:  The stands and top plates provide a wide range of height adjustments to allow precise alignment at the components discharge points.

The top plates are pre-drilled to accept the relevant size of the SRG type base plate.
