How you can drastically reduce your planning efforts

With the InterrollLayouter, you can visualize customer-specific conveying solutions with a click of the mouse: Here’s how it works.

The consistent digitization of project phases – from technical and project planning to preparing offers – simplifies and accelerates the work of system integrators. The InterrollLayouter enables AutoCAD users to easily assemble the company’s modular conveyor systems with a click of the mouse.

The ability to visualize technical planning has long been a standard requirement in the project phase of material handling solutions. Yet even today, the journey from a plant design to a detailed technical project plan and later an offer and ultimately a contract is characterized, in most cases, by time-consuming breaks in work processes.Often the initial visualizations of the complete solution need laterto be broken downinto all the required individual components of the desired systems.

Planners can use not only the InterrollLayouter to visualize the modular MPP pallet conveyor, but also the user-friendly AutoCAD plug-in to design further platforms such as Interroll’s popular Modular Conveyor Platform (MCP), which can enable material handling with zero-pressure accumulation for transport materials of up to 50 kilos thanks to energy-efficient RollerDrive. By combining different Interroll solutions, which harmonize perfectly with one another, planners can create highly complex conveyor solutions without the high planning and engineering effort typically required.

Getting started with the Interrolllayouter is easy:The free application is available as a plug-in for full versions of AutoCAD 2014 or later. Supported operating systems are Windows 7/10. Microsoft Excel is also required on the workstation computer.

There is another way:“With our application, which is seamlessly integrated into AutoCAD as a plug-in, planners and system integrators are able to visualize the planned conveyor solution based on the desired parameters,”says Marcus Dörr, Global Product Manager for the Modular Pallet Conveyor Platform MPP at Interroll. “Thanks to our application, the layout simultaneously specifies all the technical components required for the solution in question.”

From the very first design, AutoCAD users have all the technical information about the desired conveyor solution at their disposal, including, in the case of special master agreements, the necessary price information. They can conveniently use this planning data later in the offer and ordering processes. The plug-and-play modularity of Interroll conveyor platforms also eliminates the need for engineering efforts during the configuration of the solution.
