Advantage Conveyor, Inc.
Advantage Conveyor’s custom-designed, bulk accumulation conveyors include rotary, single flow, bi-flow, serpentine and continuous motion accumulation tables. Product line includes accumulation turntables, combining systems, four-lane accumulators, and dynamic transfer accumulators.
AmbaFlex’s AccuVeyor accumulation systems are designed for balancing the speed differences in a production line, processing products by time delay or buffering items offline in an intermittent process. In- or offline accumulating products include the AccuVeyor AVh, designed to overcome the disadvantages of traditional spiral accumulators. Products remain untouched on the line and do not even change tracks, remaining on the same portion of conveyor belt, in between infeed and outfeed. The AccuVeyor AVl, based around one flexible conveyor belt, is a fully dynamic accumulator suited for various applications that allows for the absorption and release of items between processes without any interruption. The AccuVeyor AVs Series is designed to save space using either time delay or a medium pressure accumulation approach.
Container handling and transport conveyors and accumulators to provide balanced packaging line operation adapted to environment and space. Products include the Bi-Directional Surge Table, an accumulation system designed to take up excess capacity from upstream equipment when downstream equipment is down or running slower.
Bevco Sales International, Inc.
Bevco accumulation systems provide temporary storage spaces for beverage and food containers. When normal production flow is interrupted due to temporary product blockage, machine malfunctioning, or adjustment, Bevco accumulators allow operators time to attend to correct problems without the need to fully shut down the line to maintain productivity. Products include recirculating accumulation tables, bi-directional accumulation tables, flow through accumulation tables, and FIFO dwell tables.
Cavanna Packaging USA
Cavanna Packaging USA’s horizontal and vertical accumulating and buffering systems are used in food processing applications such as cookies, snacks, and chocolate bars. Systems have a large storage capacity for products coming in aligned or randomly. Cavanna’s dynamic buffer features first-in/first-out (FIFO) technology and servo technology. As products enter, they are aligned in a continuous movement before being buffered via four storage coves and discharged via a swinging conveyor belt and pusher. The multi-level horizontal buffer, suitable for snack bars, chocolate bars, biscuits and other products arranged in rows, uses the last-in/first out (LIFO) system, with up to four levels of distributing stations using four buffer conveyors.
Rotary accumulation units offer complete production capability for sorting, conveying, and collecting a wide array of plastic and glass vials and bottles. Each design is great for cGMP pharmaceutical, diagnostic, and healthcare sterile and non-sterile applications. Products include unscrambling (rotary and bulk) tables, accumulation tables, surge table, and combination unscrambling/accumulation tables.
Pharmafill powered turntables by Deitz Company automatically accumulate bottles before returning them to the packaging line, accommodating the timing and production speeds of multiple machines. These accumulators are also used for accumulated packages at the end of the line.
Descon Integrated Conveyor Solutions
Descon Conveyor’s loose container conveyor serves as the link between individual machine centers, providing accumulation function. System design factors in considerations such as width of the conveyor, number of transfers, guide rail design and amount of accumulation to absorb product during downstream stoppages, so that more critical machine centers can continue producing. Provides significant accumulation with minimum floor space with simple synchronization between critical machine centers. Suitable for cans, glass and plastic bottles, round and non-round, loose container conveyors, system can be configured to both FIFO (first-in, first-out) accumulation or FILO (first-in, last-out) accumulation.
Dyco’s mass flow Mat Top accumulation table conveyor is designed to provide an economical solution to the problem of moving small bottles that tend to tip over easily. Other products include the bidirectional accumulation table, designed for round, square, or rectangular containers. Fifo accumulation tables are engineered for square or rectangular containers: containers enter the machine single file and are side pushed onto a Mat Top accumulation table conveyor. Containers are conveyed to the discharge while maintaining orientation. Roll-out accumulation table is designed for large or small round containers, features a small footprint and is available in single, double, and triple conveyor inputs with up to two conveyor outputs.
Garvey’s patented accumulation tables and accumulation conveyors handle the most unstable products at high rates. Garvey accumulation systems include the Infinity™ accumulation table, which uses a patented technology to accumulate and single file even the most unstable of products at high speeds that are unmatched in the industry. Garvey’s versatile Rotary Tables are designed for unscrambling, accumulating, or usage as a surge table. The innovative Spiral Infinity™ accumulation table combines Garvey’s technology with a Ryson spiral system.
MAC Automation Concepts
Rotary accumulation tables accept product flow from discharging belts or other general material handling systems. These spinning tables feature a robust design engineered to take demanding punishment from an industrial environment. With applications in manual inspection, degating, assembly or packing, work tables allow multiple operators to efficiently handle tasks or allow multiple products to be conveyed from multiple machines to one location without added effort or ergonomic strain.
Multi-Conveyor designs and builds accumulation conveyors to the rate and capacity specifications of the end user. Configurations of accumulators include alpine, bi-directional, mass flow, reflow, single file, serpentine, spiral, rotary and more. Company specializes in conveying applications for containers including rounds, sqrounds, bottles, vials, tubs, cans, jars and canisters (full or empty).
Nercon Conveyor Systems
Nercon’s conveyor accumulation conveyors include the Re-Flow, Rotary, and Flex Flow tables. Designed as a buffer zone, these accumulation conveyors allow the upstream and downstream applications to work independently of each other to maintain efficient production output. When downstream production reaches capacity or needs to be shutdown, the accumulation conveyor maintains production throughput as upstream products recirculate until downstream capacity can accept products.
Packaging Dynamics, Ltd.
Packaging Dynamics, Ltd.’s accumulators are designed to conveniently collect and remove filled containers from the filling line in an organized fashion making it much easier for the customer to organize products. Accumulators are constructed of mild steel for easy cleanups with a minimum amount of downtime. Variable speed design provides easy timing with the filling machine conveyor speeds. Accumulators are available with Nema 4 or explosion-proof electrics; transfer plates and dump tables are also available.
Uni Pak Corp.
Specializing in the food and beverage handling industry, Uni-Pak Corp. manufactures several varieties of accumulation tables, including bi-directional accumulation tables, recirculating accumulation tables, and rotary unscramble single filer accumulation tables, for use with conveyors and production lines for bottles, cans or jars. Accumulation tables can decrease downtime, allowing upstream processes to continue while changes, modifications or repairs are made to downstream processes. Tables are compatible with Allen Bradley and Siemens PLCs and feature a self-cleaning live chain transfer. Customizable accumulation tables are available as standalone products or as an integral part of a complete turnkey conveyor system.
