Intralogistic systems in manufacturing, packaging, and storing plants frequently require the usage of so-called vertical conveying solutions, which transport products between different levels. Some conventional machines for this purpose are very space-consuming or do often not ensure a continuous flow of products and can therefore be critical components in conveying lines, reducing their capacity and speed. The problem is solved using spiral transporters. In the first part of this master thesis, a short review of existing designs of these machines is presented, followed by the establishment of a mathematical model for determining the loads on the conveyor chain. The model acts as base knowledge for the next phase. That is the development of a spiral transporter up to the level of a 3D model, from which a functional and useful machine can be produced. Some of the problems in the process of 3D modeling are described. The thesis is concluded with further work proposals.
