BluePrint Automation: Robotic buffer system

Ryson has designed a robotic buffer system consisting of two conveyors that run side-by-side and parallel to the spiral in/outfeed conveyor.

One conveyor handles products from the filler, and the other conveys empty cases. A Delta Blueprint Automation pick-and-place robot located in front of the spiral loads products into the empty cartons or feeds the spiral when needed. Spiral conveyor provides vertical accumulation and buffers any imbalances in the flow of products or supply of cartons.
