This brief video shows a small section of the line using demo product starting at the 2:1 dual lane belt. Product merges to one lane then end transfers onto a safety-enclosed 1:5 servo roll diverter. The overhead guarding has tool-lockable hinged doors, both up and downstream of motion hazards, for operator safety.
The divert will continuously rotate to fill five (5) full lanes, one at a time, of accumulation, should a problem occur upstream. The LBP (low back pressure) table top lanes are 25 ft long, for a combined total accumulation capacity of 125 ft of product. Each lane has a pneumatic end stop at discharge to halt flow on command.
A 5:1 combiner merges product at the accumulator discharge to reduce flow back down to single file. Product then moves onto pneumatic metering clamps, roller belting and more, ultimately discharging onto the customer’s palletizing cell (not shown).
PACK EXPO Las Vegas and Healthcare Packaging EXPO (Sept. 27-29, Las Vegas Convention Center) will reunite the packaging and processing community, offering new products, technologies and solutions, while implementing up-to-date protocols for a safe and successful in-person event. Attendee registration opens in May.
