The Ryson High Capacity Spirals with optional Multi Induction or Divert Out Conveyors are making an impact in the retail world. These spirals are perfect for distribution centers and order picking systems.

High Capacity Spiral with new divert out conveyors

The new Divert Out Conveyors are ready for shipping from our manufacturing plant in Yorktown, Virginia.

This week we shipped two High Capacity Spirals to a major retail designer and distributor right outside of New York City. 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 Multiple Entry Spirals allow loads to enter our High Capacity Spirals at intermediate elevations. This is an ideal cost and space saving configuration because it allows a single spiral to handle multiple lines.Ryson Multiple Entry Spirals with Induction Conveyor

Ryson Multiple Entry Spiral Configuration

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.

A  high speed induction conveyor provides controlled spiral entry. 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 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.

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.

Ryson played a key role at American Eagle Outfitter’s new distribution center in Hazelton, PA. 

New Ryson Solutions Highlighted at New Distribution Center

Ryson 33′ Tall High Capacity Spiral Conveyors equipped with 4 induction and divert-out conveyors

Our integrator partner, Vargo Material Handling Solutions, designed our spiral conveyors into their Direct-to-Consumer picking system, where operators pick into totes from one of four levels of the pick modules.  Totes are then transported to our multi-infeed spiral conveyors where they are inducted into the spiral and out to the sorter. Vargo’s traffic control system monitors the locations of the totes inside the spiral to allow metering of the totes coming from different levels.

On the other end of the pick modules, empty totes are fed to each pick level via our new divert-out conveyors. These are down spirals with swing arm diverts at each level, which, along with our powered  discharge spurs, divert the totes out of the spiral to feed each level, on-demand.

The high capacity spirals shipped pre-assembled and pre-tested, saving on installation time.

Our High Capacity Spiral Conveyors with multi-level induction and divert out capabilities allow our integrators to provide innovative and reliable space-saving solutions to their customers.

ryson induction level conveyorAdding Induction Level to Existing Spiral Conveyor: Ryson has on occasion designed spirals to facilitate modifications to accommodate future growth.

Last week Ryson added an induction conveyor to an existing spiral already installed. The end-user, a Distribution Center specializing in in-home delivery of Grocery items, had originally outfitted their distribution center with a Ryson High Capacity 1700-600 Spiral Conveyor with a discharge height 27’-9” off the floor. As their activity increased, they began picking from the second level of their 3-level mezzanine.

With the anticipated growth realized, they entered phase two and installed a Ryson High Speed Induction Conveyor to load cases and totes into the spiral at their intermediate pick induction  level.

Spiral Layout Drawing with new induction level

We drop-shipped the induction conveyor as a kit, complete with a new notched side guard, adjustable legs and it’s inverter-rated gearmotor already mounted. Our Service Department supported the project with written instructions to insure the unit was properly installed.
