Ryson-MODEX

 

MODEX will take place in Atlanta, April 4-7. We welcome you to visit us in  booth and see our new equipment in operation.

Ryson Narrow Trak Spiral ConveyorWe will be unveiling our new  Narrow Track Spiral Conveyor equipped with our new nesting slat that has the ability to end-transfer small cartons and packages, or side-transfer small bottles and containers in a single file or in mass at speeds in excess of 200 fpm.

Also we will be running our High Capacity Spiral Conveyor with Multiple Entry and Exit capabilites allowing loads to enter or exit the High Capacity Spirals at intermediate elevations. New special induction and divert conveyors have individually adjustable conveying surfaces to match the spiral pitch, assuring a safe and reliable product transfer. The loads can enter or exit the spirals in the up or down rotation, and offers great space-savings in multi-tiered order picking systems or multi-level production operations.

Contact us to set up a private demonstration or meeting if you plan on attending.

spiral-from-floorOne of the most appreciated attributes of the Ryson Spiral Conveyor is how easy they are to install. Most spirals ship in one piece – pre-assebled, pre-tested, drastically reducing the time and cost of installation.
We recently delivered spiral conveyors to two large consumer packaging companies having unusual installation requirements. These examples demonstrate Ryson’s ability and willingness to come up with solutions for some pretty interesting installation challenges.

The first example is a 9 1/4 turn spiral 15 foot tall,  conveying loads from a mezzanine level to the first floor level. The spiral needed to go through a penetration in the floor and was shipped in two pieces to facilitate the installation in such tight quarters.

spiral-from-floor2The second spiral is also a down spiral 18 feet tall with 6 1/4 turns, conveying cartons from the second floor through a penetration in the floor. The spiral could not be supported from the below floor because there is machinery installed there. So the spiral had to be supported on a cradle hanging from the ceiling.

Theses are examples of Ryson’s customer service and our commitment to find viable solutions for our customers and integrator partners.

Last week we shipped this Mass Flow Spiral Conveyor to a Brewery. It will deliver bottles from a bulk depalletizer and discharge them to the filler at floor level. 

Ryson Mass Flow Spiral This model 2300-500 spiral features a 20” wide slat surface and is our hybrid stainless steel version. The spiral is 22’-0” tall and has a load capacity of 3,600 lbs. It will be used for declining empty 12 ounce glass bottles in mass at 1,380 bottles per minute.

Our in-house controls department pre-wired the spiral with a local control station and motor disconnect switch to reduce the implementation time of installation.

Other special design specifications were added, including optional bearing brand, a missing slat detection system and the customer’s  motor/gearbox preference.

This wide-body spiral was designed to ship on a flat-bed step deck trailer to minimize the degree of dis-assembly required for shipping purposes. Our service technician is on site, assisting the riggers and millwrights in installing the spiral.

Our Systems Integrator partner in this project is Foth Production Solutions. For more information on the Ryson Mass Flow Spiral Conveyor and it’s applications, visit www.ryson.com, or you can read more installation stories from our blog.

Bucket Elevator RenderingThis week Novasem, a major seed supplier in Mexico celebrated the grand opening of their new modern corn seed processing plant outside Guadalajara. 12 Ryson Bucket Elevators have been installed. The plant is part of their  expansion and modernization program. The event hosted food and music and even a Catholic blessing. The plant was recently completed and the ceremony was planned before production starts.

There are several different bucket elevator sizes supporting their process and some of elevators will be handing up to 20,000 lbs. per hour and are more than 60 feet tall. The bucket elevators utilize the FDA approved pivoting buckets moving through a fully-enclosed powder-coated carbon steel structure.

The Ryson Bucket Elevators combine vertical and horizontal transportation of bulk material in one integral unit and they can have multiple inlets and outlets. Their modular design and rugged construction make them suitable for a wide variety of applications. For more information on the Ryson Bucket Elevator, visit www.ryson.com or read more bucket elevator stories from our blog.Bucket Elevator Photos

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.

For more information, visit www.ryson.com or contact our sales department.

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.
