Pack Expo 2004: Accutower dynamic buffer system
PACK EXPO WEB EXCLUSIVE: Krones is introducing the Accutower dynamic buffering system at Pack Expo 2004 in its booth, S-2466. In the Accutower, containers move on a conveyor that is arranged in the shape of a vertical spiral, requiring significantly less space than traditional buffer systems. Accutower is easily configured into existing lines. Other advantages include: *Processing of unusually-shaped containers; container orientation remains the same. *Bottle never leaves transport chain. *Chain is run on only two drive motors, resulting in less maintenance and less energy consumption.
