Pack Expo 2004: Infinity Series 3-D accumulator

PACK EXPO WEB EXCLUSIVE: Garvey introduces its Infinity Series 3-D accumulator at Pack Expo 2004 in its booth located at N-3813. Wrapping and bagging machines can deliver their output to a single Infinity 3-D, and the system will automatically discharge the packages of product (flow-wrapped packages, bags, trays, and cartons) – oriented – to one or more downstream machines. The system also provides accumulation between the upstream and downstream machines, dramatically increasing the overall throughput of the line. No complex mechanisms or controls are required. Packages are accumulated, oriented, and discharged via the natural flow dynamics of the machine.
