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.
