This week we’re shipping three spiral conveyors to California for our integrator partner, Honeywell Intelligrated. Two of these are high capacity multi-infeed spirals where cartons will be inducted into two different spiral elevations, in addition to the natural infeed.

Ryson Multi-Infeed Spirals

This tall Ryson High Capacity Spiral will use induction conveyors to convey boxes from intermediate levels into the spiral.

At Ryson, we manufacture our own induction conveyors specifically designed to work with our High Capacity Spirals as one integral unit. The induction conveyor belts are individually adjustable to match the spiral pitch. This assures a safe and reliable product transfer.

Multi-Infeed Spirals Induction Conveyor

Ryson Proprietary Induction Conveyor

Our customers prefer to have our induction conveyor be part of the spiral, because it makes the installation and integration much easier, and assures a trouble-free implementation.

The Multi-Entry and Exit Spirals are used in an increasing number or warehouses/distribution facilities or where several packaging lines utilize a single spiral.

For more information on the Ryson Multiple Entry Spiral, download the brochure, visit ryson.com or read more application stores on our Blog.

Quality and service is always in focus at Ryson. One example of this is our dedication to fast response for quotes.

Ryson Request for ProposalOur goal is to have a one-day turnaround on most Ryson proposals and a next day response if the RFQ (request for proposal) is received in the afternoon or if the request requires engineering input before the proposal can be completed.

Our sales team works very hard to meet these goals and it is very rewarding when this is acknowledged by our customers. Below are some excerpts of resent acknowledgments:

“Thank you very  much, I can always count on you and your team.”

 

“Thanks Regina and the rest of the team at Ryson on getting the

quote out on such a short timeframe.”

Garvey Spiral Infinity – Ryson’s collaborative project with Garvey Corp. adds vertical accumulation to their already proven Infinity System.

It received  a lot of attention earlier this month at Pack Expo in Las Vegas, and seemed to especially catch the eyes of craft brewing companies. In fact, it topped the list in Craft Brewing Business‘ article entitled “Five beer production, packaging products you didn’t know you should know about“. The article reported about great innovations found at this year’s Pack Expo.

In the fast line of bottling, there is a need for accumulation if something downstream stops. (like between the filler and labeler, if labels need to be restocked for example.) The Garvey Infinity Loop allows 60 ft2 of accumulation, but some operations require more. That’s when “Garvey teamed up with Ryson, makers of spiral conveyors, to develop a simple and elegant solution: the Spiral Infinity. The Spiral Infinity can be extended to provide up to 290 ft2 of accumulation space with only a slightly larger footprint than the standard Infinity loop table.”

This week, we’re shipping two Ryson Narrow Trak Spirals (an incline and a decline) for transporting empty plastic bottles up from a bulk depalletizing station to be conveyed overhead and then back down to the filler and labeler.

Ryson Narrow Trak Spiral Conveyor

Ryson Narrow Trak Spirals will be used to convey empty plastic bottles.

Our 6” wide slat Narrow Trak was specified, but needed to utilize the larger-diameter model (1700-150NT) to facilitate the tall bottle’s clearance through the spiral. The spiral was painted one of Ryson’s 200 standard RAL colors and has an elevation change of 8 feet at a speed of 60 feet per minute.

The NT Spirals offer a significantly larger elevation change capacity than what is currently available in the small package marketplace. They are also a good alternative to side gripper conveyors because they can run at high speeds and do not need to be adjusted for varying product sizes.

For more information about the Ryson Narrow Trak Spiral Conveyors, visit www.ryson.com or download the product spec sheet.

This week Ryson is exhibiting at Pack Expo in Las Vegas. It is the largest PMMI show of the year, and its a good one.

Ryson booth at pack expoOur booth was well attended with many existing customers and integration partners stopping by to say hi and to see what’s new. We also had quite a few new contacts that have application interest and questions.  At our booth, we had two versions of our Narrow Trak Spiral Conveyor, a Case Spiral and our Bucket Elevator.

Ryson Mass flow spiralsThis year we also had a couple of spirals in the Garvey booth, which helped highlight their new Infinity System that uses the Ryson Mass Flow Spirals for vertical accumulation. It allows the system to increase system capacity without enlarging the footprint.

Recently, our controls and service groups were assisting our Integrator Partner, Conveyor & Drives, Inc. with a project. The end-user, a distribution center for computer peripheral equipment, was replacing a competitor’s spiral conveyors, due to reliability issues they were having with them.

Stacked Ryson Spirals at a Distribution CenterThe reconfigured system consists of two of our model 1700-600’s, double stacked. One spiral inclines from level one to level two, the other declines totes down to level three. Our AutoCad 3D drawings helped Conveyor & Drives confirm the space necessary to install our spiral extended leg support structure, supporting the upper spiral.

We were asked to replace the existing spirals over a short down-time window by our Integration Partner. They also asked us to include a pre-wired full controls option, which included chain tension monitoring system and a motor over torque shutdown, because the previous spirals did not have them.

Ryson would like to take a moment to send out our well-wishes to everyone affected by the recent hurricanes and earthquakes. We hope everyone is doing ok and didn’t lose anything that couldn’t be replaced. We would like to express our sincere appreciation for our customers, vendors and integration partners, and especially those that have been affected by events of late.

If you have been affected, please know that we are thinking about you, and wish you a speedy recovery to you, your loved ones and your businesses.

This week we’re shipping a spiral to a Distribution Center with new pre-wired control options.

ryson wiring control options

Our Integrator partner, Conveyor Solutions Inc., requested a pre-wired Spiral Conveyor. Their master control panel was remote, requiring a local mounting of a NEMA 12 control enclosure that incorporated a panel mounted disconnect and a VFD (variable frequency drive).  The VFD was wired so that the integrator could control the spiral with a few digital inputs, and also have the spiral safeties (slack chain and motor over-torque) prewired, so they could be integrated easily.

The ease of implementation and lower cost of us doing that in our factory saved money and installation time.

Most of our Spiral Conveyors are shipped without controls because they normally integrate with an overall conveyor control system. Our spirals always include an inverter duty gear motor and two proximity sensors, one for the automatic chain tensioner and one for the overload protection device. Ryson offers a number of other pre-wiring  and control options.  For more information about Ryson Spiral Conveyor options, visit www.ryson.com.
