The separating stop “ASMST-20” stops, separates and damps one ore more accumulated workpiece pallets at a defined stop surface on the workpiece pallet or directly at the conveyed workpiece.
The separator can also be used for stopping and positioning of pneumatic cylinders.
ASMST = Separator for the “STEIN” transfer system

The values, given in the table above for the permissible total weight of the accumulated workpiece carriers (WT) and the permissible conveying speed, apply with a belt friction of µ=0,07 between workpiece carrier and conveyor band and with the use of an ASUTEC standard stop. To select the suitable separator, we recommend the use of our online product finder.
The specified weight range is composed of the minimum workpiece carrier weight mmin and the maximum workpiece carrier weight mmax.
Minimum propulsive force: The minimum propulsive force can be calculated using the formula FRmin = m/min · g · µ.
For the ASMST-20 -> FRmin = 0,69 N. This minimum propulsive force must not be less than this, in order to ensure that the stop can be pushed by the WT into its damped (retracted) position.
Maximum propulsive force: This maximum propulsive force may not be exceeded in order to ensure a sufficient damping effect and thus the separator has sufficient force for lowering. For the ASMST-20 -> FRmax = 13,8 N
Adjustment of damping: The adjustment of the damping effect can be regulated within a certain range. As an experience value can be stated that when the damping is adjusted to a certain weight, other weights in a range of ± 50% can be damped properly with this setting.
For example: Damping optimally adjusted to 10 kg mass to be dampened -> Damping of masses from 5 kg to 15 kg well possible. At lower masses, the damping end position is reached late or not at all. At higher masses, the damping is not strong enough and the speed of the workpiece carrier at the damping end position is still too high and the workpiece carrier will be abruptly stopped.
