Ryson Dual Track Spirals are an ideal solution for even more space savings because they allow 2 lanes of product flow within one spiral structure.

 Ryson Dual Track Spirals

This week we shipped another one of our Dual Track Spirals for our Integrator partner, Garvey Corporation.

This 1300-400/2300-400 machine contains two independent lanes of 16” wide overlapping slats in a nine foot diameter footprint. In this case, Garvey will take the output of the case packer and split them into two lanes prior to the spiral. The high level palletizer requires a dual infeed (cases infeeding two-abreast). The spiral conveys various cases of cans of paint at 120 FPM at rates up to 75 cases per minute to a discharge height of 10’-6”.

Two tracks operate independently within one spiral structure. Both tracks can go up or down and can optionally be reversible. Only one drive motor is required for each track, resulting in substantial savings in energy, controls and systems integration.

Ryson is exhibiting at Pack Expo East in PhiladelphiaThis week, Ryson is exhibiting at Pack Expo East in Philadelphia.

Pack Expo East is a regional packaging show where approximately 400 leading suppliers of advanced packaging equipment, automation, robotics and controls, materials, containers, printing and labeling technologies and other supply chain solutions exhibit.

Ryson booth at Pack Expo EastWe are running our Narrow Trak Spiral Conveyor with our new micro-pitch conveyor – our newest accessory to the Narrow Trak family of spirals. 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.

Two booths down, our integrator partner Garvey displayed their latest version of the Garvey Infinity Loop that integrates two Ryson Mass Flow Spiral Conveyors.

Garvey Infinity Loop with Ryson SpiralsJoining forces with Ryson has allowed the Vertical Infinity to utilize two incredible technological achievements and create the most efficient accumulation machine Garvey has ever built. The Vertical Infinity furthers Garvey’s mission to maximize the production of lines by keeping the constraint running when the non constraint machine’s go down. Download the product spec sheet to read more about this incredible collaborative application.

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.”

Ryson Garvey Infinity Accumulation Loop

A new version of the Garvey Infinity Accumulation Loop integrates two Ryson Mass Flow Spiral Conveyors and enables the use of available vertical space to increase system capacity within a small footprint.

Garvey will introduce a new version of their patented continuous Infinity Accumulation Loop at Pack Expo Las Vegas, September 25 – 27, 2017.

This new version integrates two Ryson Mass Flow Spiral Conveyors with the Garvey Infinity Loop and enables the use of available vertical space to increase system capacity within a small footprint.

The Garvey Infinity Accumulation uses patented technology to accumulate and single file even the most unstable of products at speeds that are unmatched in the industry. Using their patented loop technology, Garvey handles products with no back pressure, no breakage, no label damage and minimal noise.

The Ryson Mass Flow Spirals can handle full or empty bottles, cans, jars and other types of containers. Products in the spirals are conveyed up and down in a single file or in a continuous mass flow. These spirals utilize the proven modular Ryson high capacity spiral technology designed for reliability, low maintenance and long life.

Garvey is a global leader producing conveying, accumulating, and automation solutions. Joining forces with Ryson has allowed the Vertical Infinity to utilize two incredible technological achievements and create the most efficient accumulation machine Garvey has ever built. The Vertical Infinity furthers Garvey’s mission to maximize the production of lines by enabling products to keep moving. Download this press release.

Pack Expo Las VegasRyson will be in booth C-4642 and will be exhibiting other models of Spiral Conveyors. Ryson is the number one manufacturer of spiral conveyors in the USA. For more information about Ryson’s Vertical Conveying Solutions, visit www.ryson.com.

See the Vertical Infinity Accumulation Loop running in booth C-3809 in Las Vegas from September 25th-27th.

Mass Flow With Lane Divider

High Capacity Mass Flow Spiral Conveyor With Lane Divider to Run Two Production Lines at the Same Time

This week we shipped one of our new high capacity mass flow spiral conveyors with 20″ wide slats to Lindy’s Italian Ice’s production facility in North Carolina. The spiral will convey cups of Italian Ice from a spiral freezer down to the floor level. 

This application is interesting in that the cups come out of the freezer with two different flavors at the same time, which need to be conveyed in separate lanes. The two lanes are fed on to the spirals’s extended infeed which is equipped with a center lane divider ensuring separation of the two flavors in the spiral decline. The products are then discharged from  both sides of the spiral’s extended outfeed and conveyed to separate cartoners.

This spiral freezer and associated mass flow vertical conveyor enabled the customer to increase the production rate drastically. By using 2 lanes within one Ryson Spiral they also significantly reduced the cost of equipment.

Because of the size of the 2300-500 model high capacity spiral a stepped-deck flatbed trailer was used to ship the spiral. One of our Yorktown-based technicians met the trailer at it’s destination to supervise the unloading and set-up of the spiral, which took a day and a half.

The 20″ wide  slat mass flow model can handle capacities up to 2,000 bottle cans or jars per minute are also available in powder coated carbon steel, stainless steel and washdown versions. For more information on Ryson’s High Capacity Mass Flow Spiral Conveyor, please visit www.ryson.com. Our integration partner on this project was Garvey Corporation.
