This week Ryson’s new tradeshow booth was completed. It is modular and can be configured for a large or small booth space.

New Ryson Booth

It will make it’s debut at Modex in Atlanta in April. We are very happy with how the booth was designed, how it looks, and how it exemplifies our message.

We welcome you to check out our brand new booth at Modex in Atlanta, April 4-7 Booth 4847. We will have several of our new spiral conveyors running and we will be showing off some exciting new features. Please contact our sales team if you would like to set up a demonstration.

In today’s material handling market, we see more and more of our integrators creating three dimensional proposal drawings for their customers.

That’s why Ryson offers AutoCad 3D drawings of all of our various models of spiral conveyors. It is another sign that we are committed to customer service and try to assist our integrator partners in their proposal process. We can normally supply cad blocks with our proposal or within a day of your request.

Here’s an illustration of how we supported one of our integrator partners – Intelligrated -in the proposal for a design of a pick module with our 3D  AutoCAD blocks.

Ryson Spiral with Dust CanopyNext week we will be shipping a spiral conveyor built for our integrator partner Arrowhead Conveyor Corporation to a manufacturer of hand cleaning and sanitizing products.

The project involves elevating plastic pucks with empty bottles in them at at rate of 120 per minute on our 1600-200 spiral conveyor. To keep dust and debris from entering the uncapped bottles, we have designed a stainless steel canopy that bolts to our center tube. Under cover plates are installed under the entire length of the spiral, and the canopy protects the top turn.

The spiral also features inside and outside UHMW guide rails to create a channel for the pucks as they travel up the spiral.

The Ryson Design Team knows that each spiral is unique and built to exact specifications of the requirements of each job. Many practical solutions have been developed over the years, and the dust canopy is one of them. It is an example of our over all commitment to customer satisfaction.

Narrow Trak SpiralIn a few weeks we will be shipping this tall Narrow Trak Spiral Conveyor to a snack packager that will be lowering empty composite cans from a mezzanine to the floor level.

The spiral will be installed during a short shutdown period and will involve one of our service technicians who will supervise the rigging and help with the re-assembly and fit-up of the side transfer conveyor at both the infeed and outfield. The composite cans, which will eventually get filled with nuts, travel down from 18’-2” at 175 cans per minute.

This Model 1100-150 Narrow Trak Spiral Conveyor is manufactured in our hybrid stainless steel finish, suitable for wet conditions. It is built to ship in two sections, due to egress issues in the installation area.

The Narrow Trak’s 6” wide nesting slats allow this spiral to be used for end transfer or side transfer, making it perfect for cartons, bottles, jars and pouches. It is an alternative to side gripper elevators and has a larger elevation change capability than any other compact spiral on the market.

Stacked Ryson SpiralsNext week, we’ll be shipping four spiral conveyors to a manufacturer of power tools for our Integrator Partner, Intelligrated.

The project includes two spirals that are stacked on top of each other. One spiral sits on the floor and elevates cases from the first level to the second level of a picking system. The upper spiral is mounted on a platform that straddles the lower spiral and brings cases down from the fourth level (32’-6”) to the third level.

This system is handling cases that weigh up to 75 lbs. at speeds of 150 feet per minute. Like our spirals, the support structure is modular, allowing it to be transported to the site in smaller panel sections for ease of handling and installation.

The spirals specified on the project are our 1800-650 and will be shipped on a step-deck flatbed to allow them to be shipped pre-assembled – which greatly reduces installation time.

Ryson knows systems and design proposals can be time sensitive, and we have made it easy for our customers to submit a Request for Quotation through our website to save time.

RYSON RFQOn our website home page, look for a red box labeled REQUEST A QUOTE. Clicking the Icon takes you to a data table that will give us all the information we need to turn around a proposal quickly, sometimes in a few hours from hitting the SUBMIT button, but most of the time the same day of our receipt of your information.
Some applications require drawings and specifications be sent to us, but for the more straight forward applications, the quickest way to get pricing on our Spiral Conveyors and Bucket Elevators is online.

This is another way that shows our dedication to customer service, and it’s an effort to assist our integrator partners in the bidding and proposal processes. Visit www.ryson.com to see our online RFQ form.

Ryson’s business is growing. To help with demand, the engineering department is growing as well. In addition customizing the designs of each spiral ordered, the engineering department assists Ryson’s Sales force with 3D CAD blocks for presentations, helps troubleshoot with the service team and is always working on new product development and improvement of existing Ryson products.

Increasing staffing in the engineering department is one example of Ryson’s commitment to customer service and our goal to maintain industry leadership in vertical conveying.

Mario KrisnaratnePlease welcome Mario Krisnaratne – a mechanical engineer, who joined Ryson in November. His duties include design support for spiral projects, help support the increased need for proposal drawings, 3d spiral modeling, and will become a primary source to support Ryson’s future design development needs.

 

Pam Phillips

Pam Phillips joined the Ryson team in 2013 as a project engineer. She helps provide customer support interaction for standard and custom spiral projects. She is also the lead engineer for development of the next generation High Capacity Divert Out Unit and the new 1200-230 Narrow Track Spiral. In addition, she is also involved in testing of new, existing and proposed spiral machine elements for viability, strength, durability and functionality.

Ryson High Capacity SpiralsMany think of using our spiral conveyors for handling boxes and totes, but not often for heavy pails and buckets.
This week we’re shipping three spirals to a large paint manufacturer for our Integrator partner, Control Systems Design.

The smaller spiral  – model 1200-200 with 8″ wide slats – will decline one gallon buckets of paint at a rate of 150 per minute. The other two spirals will handle five gallon pails weighing up to 80 pounds each – at a rate of 22 per minute. We’ve specified the Ryson High Capacity 1700-400 model with a 16” wide slat surface for the two 5-gallon spirals. This is because they can handle a weight capacity of 3,600 lbs. One of them is ascending and the other descending and they are both 15 ft tall.

The Ryson High Capacity Spiral Conveyors are in response to our customers need to go higher and handle more weight. They double the capacity of our regular spirals and ship in one piece which drastically reduce the time and cost of installation.  Click here for more information on the Ryson High Capacity Spiral Conveyor.

ryson service tech

Ryson Service Tech Marc Jaarsma connects an annual audit for a customer.

In the past few years, we are seeing a trend toward annual audits of our spirals by our end-users. They are scheduling routine visits by our technicians to inspect their machines and we will use the visit to train (or re-train) their maintenance and operations personnel on the use and preventive maintenance of the spiral conveyors.

As with other automated line equipment, it is not unusual for PLC and VFD settings for the spirals to get tampered with.  This results in interlocks being bypassed or “timed-out”, speed settings being mis-matched between the spiral and adjoining conveyors as well as other adjustments that result in premature wear and tear on the spiral conveyor’s chain-belt components.

We are also seeing immediate benefits for those that have implemented these annual audits. Our parts and service departments constantly monitor purchasing of replacement parts and are quick to pick up the phone and inquire about higher than normal parts usage. This typically comes back to the integration issues discussed above and that’s where these “check-ups” pay for themselves in increased up time and longer life.
