Vertical Accumulators(7 companies)
A buffering system that aligns horizontal rows of containers or packages through indexing and then elevates the indexed rows in a vertical fashion as a stack, often used for high-volume lines. Plan to purchase new conveying, feeding and handling equipment? Explore our articles to get tips.
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.
Dillin Engineered Systems
Dillin Engineered Systems specializes in accumulators including a wide selection of both inline accumulators as well as vertical accumulation systems. Inline accumulators include horizontal multi-laned systems, lift rail accumulators, single filer system and mass flow accumulators, as well as bi-directional and re-circulation accumulators. Dillin also supplies seven models of vertical accumulators, including the Roe-Lift Mega Accumulator, the F.I.F.O Accumulator, the Angle Accumulator, and the Flex Sweep Accumulator.
FlexLink Systems, Inc
Accumulating and buffer conveyors from FlexLink feature Dynamic Motion Transfer (DMT™), allowing for balanced flows at up to 1000 products/min. The intelligent features of the diverter enable a demand driven production with optimized conveyor and machine speeds. It is suitable for a wide range of products including sensitive, flexible packaging. The spiral shaped accumulating conveyor (alpine conveyor) functions as an accumulation/buffer zone between machines. It can also be used as an in-process step, e.g. for cooling or drying, or simply to elevate and lower products. This type of accumulating conveyors are used inline or as a bypass. The accumulation buffer track is typically used in testing and sorting applications.
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.
Shuttleworth offers accumulating and buffering systems for food trays, glass jars, paper plates or heavy machined parts. Machines are designed for gentle, low back pressure product accumulation and buffering, ranging from laned or mass accumulation to non-contact and vertical buffering, Line of accumulation and buffering conveyors includes DASH systems, designed for dynamic, continuous motion accumulation that results in increased throughput and enhanced line efficiencies.
