The tradeshow season is upon us. Ryson will be attending Modex in Atlanta, and Pack Expo East in Philadelphia in the coming months.

We are excited to show customers and our integration partners the new additions to our spiral family and additional options that are available that might be ideal for your application.

 

Modex will be in Atlanta April 9-12. This show is centered around the distribution, warehousing and logistics industry. Ryson will be running our new Wide Trak Spiral, which is ideal for these kinds of applications. Our new induction and divert out designs allows our high capacity models to have materials enter or exit the spiral at intermediate elevations. This is ideal for multi-level mezzanine operations.  Visit us at Booth B-2427.

Pack Expo East is the regional packaging show though PMMI. The show is centered around machinery and suppliers the support the packaging industry. We will be displaying our new Narrow Trak Spirals there, which are ideal for vertically conveying small items  in mass or in a single file. Visit Us at Booth #1104

Ryson solid lube bearings

Ryson introduces new proprietary solid lube bearings for wash-down applications.

Ryson’s new stainless steel wash-down bearings features an advanced proprietary solid lubricant, which is impervious to detergents, mild acids and bases. These bearings have no seals, can run completely immersed in liquids at any temperature and provide lubrication for the life of the bearings.

Standard stainless steel bearings have limitations. Strong detergents, foaming cleaners, detergent based transfer agents and high pressure or high temperature cleaning liquids will over time migrate past the bearing seals and eventuality dissolve the grease in standard bearings, resulting in reduced bearing life.

Standard stainless steel bearings are only suitable for for wet environments where the conveying surface can be cleaned with a mild cleaner and be rinsed with low temperature and low pressure water. We recommend the spiral run dry after cleaning.

This is another example of Ryson’s commitment to provide products with a low total cost of ownership. For more information on the many benefits of the Ryson Spiral Conveyors, visit www.ryson.com, or download our brochure. You can also read more stories about wash-down spiral conveyors in our weekly blog.

Ryson Case Spiral in a Super Bowl Commercial

This Past weekend the NFL Super Bowl aired, and as tradition has it, it’s also a crazy television commercial kick-off.  Much to our surprise, Budweiser aired a commercial that showed off a Ryson Case Spirals from their Cartersville Georgia Plant.

We know that the commercial was not about spiral conveyors, but the fact is that Ryson has a very strong presence in the beverage industry, from the big brand names to small emerging craft brewers. Our Mass Flow Spirals convey full or empty bottles or cans up or down in a single file or in a continuous mass flow at a rate up to 2000 units per minute. The Mass Flow Spirals are typically used to convey products from a bulk de-palletizer to the filler and/or to the packaging lines. The Case Spirals like the one in the commercial covey cases from packaging to palletizing or storage.
Our customers prefer Ryson Spirals because they are very reliable and have a very low cost of ownership. The Ryson Vertical conveying concept allows a seamless production line between elevations with a very small footprint. If you would like more information about the Ryson Spiral conveyors, visit www.ryson.com.

The Ryson Wide Trak Spirals with Induction Conveyor options are getting attention at distribution centers. The wide trak spiral boasts our widest slat width and can reach elevations up to 50′. It is ideal for a multi-tiered order picking modules or warehouses.

Wide Trak Spirals With Induction Conveyor

This week we are building two (2) identical Wide Trak Spirals with induction conveyors that will be shipped to a major footwear designer and distributor on the west coast for our Integrator Partner, Honeywell Intelligrated.

The spiral model 2200-760 is elevating open cases 18’. Both the spirals will be supplied by two different production lines , with one at the ground level and a second one at an elevation of 13’ feet. This intermediate elevation will utilize our new induction conveyors.

The new induction conveyor powered roller design is individually adjustable to match the spiral pitch, assuring a safe and reliable product transfer. The spirals will run at 200 feet per minute.

The Ryson Wide Trak Spiral Conveyors are perfect for such an application due to the size of the products,  the largest being 32″x24″x30″ along with their high capacity and throughput capabilities.

The 30″ wide conveying surface is ideal for larger items as well as boxes/totes of varying sizes, which is common order fulfillment operations. The induction conveyor configuration allows loads to enter the spiral at intermediate elevations, allowing for example load entry at all levels of a mezzanine into a single spiral. This ability drastically reduces the footprint needed for vertical conveying.

An increasing number of Ryson Spirals are equipped with our proprietary induction and divert conveyor design that allows loads to enter or exit the spiral at intermediate elevation levels.

Ryson Induction and Divert Conveyor

Ryson 30″ and 16″ wide induction conveyors

The Ryson Induction and Divert conveyors are designed as an integral part of our multiple infeed or outfeed spirals. In addition to our belt-type induction conveyors, we have also developed new versions utilizing powered rollers. With 2 options now available, we are able to provide the optimal Induction and Divert Conveyor solution depending on the size and shape of the load that will be handled.

Both belt and roller versions are individually adjustable to match the spiral pitch, assuring a safe and reliable product transfer. These induction conveyors are available for all High Capacity and Wide Trak models and match their 16″, 24″, 30″ and 36″ wide slat widths.

The micro-pitch conveyor is our newest accessory to the Narrow Trak family of spiral conveyors.

micro pitch conveyor

This micro-pitch transfer conveyor is slave-driven off the drive or idle-end shafts and is geared to match the speed of the spiral- perfectly –  even at high speeds.

This transfer unit minimizes the unpowered gap between the spiral and adjoining conveyors, allowing smaller and lighter products to be end transferred into and out of the spiral. When end transferring the slats can be equipped with friction inserts to provide more friction. This allows steeper incline/decline angles which yields greater elevation changes with the same number of turns.

The Narrow Trak spirals are available in a 6” and 9” wide nesting slat design. The proprietary slat design have the capacity to reliably end-transfer small cartons and packages or side-transfer small bottles and containers in a single file or in a continuous mass flow. The Ryson Narrow Trak Spirals are great space savers with high throughput that can run at speeds in excess of 200 fpm.

The transfer unit is available in either a powder coated or stainless steel versions. For more information on the Ryson Narrow Trak Spiral conveyors, visit www.ryson.com, or download the NT product brochure.

Ryson NT Spirals going to a microbreweryThis week we shipped (3) spirals to a Canadian microbrewery for our Integrator partner, Pacific Packaging Systems

The project involved an incline and decline spiral handling full 12 and 18 ounce cans of beer at a rate of 250 per minute on our Narrow Trak spiral model 1700-150.  This combination allows the brewery to move raw materials and finished goods through the area by getting part of the production line off the floor and 8 feet in the air. The cans run single file at a speed of 100 FPM.

The photo shows the units ready for shipment. (still with the protective wrap on them for shipment). They are the Hybrid stainless steel option for operation in a wet environment.

The third spiral is a case handling spiral shipped in two sections because of some plant egress challenges.

Ryson Spirals are growing in the bottling market, and the Narrow Trak Spiral delivers some advantages that our larger spirals can’t always offer. For more information on the Ryson Narrow Trak Spiral Conveyors, visit www.ryson.com, or read more application stories on our blog.

ryson spiral spliceRyson Modularity allows for special spiral splice to ship and install spirals in multiple sections.

This week we finished building (2) model 1500-400 spiral conveyors for our Integrator partner NCC Automated Systems. The spirals were specified to ship in three sections, because the end user’s interior access doorway openings and installation area limited the shipping sizes of the spirals.

One of our technicians will assist their installers in the rigging and re-assembly of the machines at the project site. Once assembled, the spirals will be 24 feet tall and will convey sealed cases.

Ryson’s modular design offers many advantages… Including the option for flanged sections of the center tube making a spiral splice, allowing the spiral to be shipped in sections. The main purpose for this is to assist in installation if the space is too small to stand the spiral up in one piece, or if the spiral is to span between two levels through a floor or mezzanine. The spirals were completely assembled and run in our manufacturing plant before they were  prepared for shipment in three pieces.
