Space-saving Multiple Exit Spirals allow multi-level product flow, allowing loads to exit a spiral at intermediate elevations… all with a single footprint. 

Multiple Exit Spirals: Exponential Space Savings.This is a perfect application for multi-level warehousing and pick module order picking operations. Loads are able to exit from  a single spiral at multiple elevations, saving valuable floorspace.

Ryson Spirals can also be configured to have loads enter the spiral at intermediate levels. Both options require a High Capacity or Wide Trak Spiral. The multiple entry and exit spirals are equipped with slats that have special rounded friction inserts. They provide just enough friction to prevent products from back sliding without preventing smooth side movement during induction or diverting out.

The specialized and proprietary Divert Out Conveyors have a pivoting arm which incorporates a powered face belt assuring proper product orientation when diverting out of the spiral.  The powered out feed conveyor is similar to the induction conveyor in that they have individually adjustable rollers that allows you to match the spiral pitch, assuring a reliable product transfer out of the spiral.

Integrated traffic controls are required for all Multiple Entry and Exit Spirals.  There are some limitations with regards to the placement (location) of these ancillary conveyors, and the throughput capacity may be reduced,  so we encourage you to contact the Ryson sales team for layout assistance early in your project.

This concept is also commonly used in applications where a single spiral is utilized for multiple production or packaging lines.

Ryson High Capacity Spiral Conveyors have the ability to induct and divert out at intermediate elevations.Ryson High Capacity Spiral Conveyors have the ability to induct and divert out at intermediate elevations. This is especially useful in multi-tier pick modules and warehousing. It allows a single space saving spiral to service multiple levels. The cost and space savings is exponential.

The video below shows some recent applications where Ryson Spirals are used to induct or divert out at intermediate points. There are 2 main operating modes for the induction operation. The first is where controls are applied to find a gap in the product flow to induct the loads, the other is a “batch” induction where “slugs” are introduced to the spiral at the same time.

The special induction and divert conveyors have individually adjustable conveying surfaces to match the spiral pitch, assuring a smooth and reliable operation.

Modex 2018 logoThis week Ryson is exhibiting at Modex 2018 in Atlanta. 

This show is our biggest show to reach our logistics, warehousing and distribution industry customers and integrators.

We are running our new Wide Trak Spiral Conveyor in our booth. This spiral can have a slat width of up to 36 inches. It is in our family of High Capacity Spirals that can optionally be configured with our proprietary induction and divert-out conveyors that allow loads to enter or exit the spiral at intermediate elevations. This is a clear space-savings advantage for companies that have multi-tiered product flow.

The multiple entry ability is most often utilized in two main areas:

In the manufacturing and packaging market, an induction conveyor is typically installed at ground level, near the Spiral’s infeed. This configuration simply allows flow from separate production lines to feed a single spiral.

In the distribution and warehousing industry it is most often used to feed materials from a multi-tiered mezzanine onto a single spiral. (see drawing on left). This is an ideal application and an efficient use of space when compared to traditional methods.

MODEX provides attendees access to the latest manufacturing and supply chain equipment and technologies. MODEX 2018 will be held April 9-12, 2018 in the Georgia World Congress Center in Atlanta, GA.

The first spiral will have three induction conveyors and the second one will have three divert out conveyors. The Ryson High Capacity Spiral Conveyors are perfect for this application due to the size of the products.

The model 1700-600 spirals will be elevating and bringing down sealed cartons and totes 30’ at a speed of 150 fpm. Both spirals will be supplied by and feeding to three picking levels. The induction and divert out conveyors are designed specifically to work with Ryson High Capacity Spirals and becomes an integral part of the spirals.

The Induction Conveyors have a new powered roller design where the rollers are individually adjustable to match the the spiral pitch, assuring a safe and reliable product transfer.

The Divert Out arm pivots across the spiral slats when diverting out. It incorporates a powered face belt, which assures proper product orientation when diverted out of the spiral. The outfeed conveyors also have an adjustable surface to match the spiral pitch, facilitating smooth product transfer out of the spiral.

The spirals were shipped  for our Integrator Partner, TGW Conveyor Systems. The spirals were manufactured, built and shipped in only 8 weeks. They were shipped fully assembled which will reduce the installation and integration time.

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.

The core Ryson concept is to vertically convey using minimum floorspace. Although the concept is simple, it can be used in countless applications.

Ryson Concept Vertical ConveyingThe Ryson Concept has two main kinds of spirals. A Unit Load Type, and a Mass Flow Type. The unit load Spiral Conveyors smoothly handle boxes, totes, trays and cases and the Mass Flow Spirals convey materials such as cans, bottles and jars in bulk mass. They both come in standard capacity and high capacity – for applications that require extra throughput, weight handling or elevation change. The High Capacity Spirals can optionally be equipped with intermediate infeed or discharge locations, ideal for multi tiered order picking applications.

Much of ryson’s business is in two main categories: Packaging /food & beverage / personal care products and warehousing / oder picking / distribution. Because of the diversity of applications, Ryson has developed several standard slat widths and each model’s footprint size is based on that.

Ryson Concept Standard Sizes Chart

We are dedicated to finding the best spiral that fits your application needs. On the Ryson Website, we have a request for quotation form that you can fill out. It will ask you many questions about the application’s requirements. The Ryson sales team will then figure out the best model and have a quote to you within 24 hours.
