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.

Demo Loop  Illustrates how Multiple Entry and Exit Spirals Work

These versatile and space saving spirals allow loads to enter or exit the spirals at several intermediate elevations. This it particularly beneficial in multi-level order picking systems or multi-floor production facilities.

The new Ryson induction and divert out conveyors are designed specifically to work with the Ryson High Capacity Spirals and support intermediate spiral entry or exit. The conveyor belts and rollers are individually adjustable to match the spiral pitch, assuring smooth and reliable operation. The loads can enter or exit the spirals in the up or down rotation.

The video below shows how loads enter and exit the spiral at intermediate elevations. If you would like more information on Ryson Vertical Conveying applications, please visit www.ryson.com. For more information on the Multiple entry/exit spirals, download the spec sheet.

Ryson Spiral Conveyors at Modex 2012

Plenty of interest at the Ryson booth at Modex 2012

The Modex show has been a smashing success for Ryson. We weren’t sure what to expect since this was the first Modex exposition, but the attendance is better than expected and Ryson gets to show off our new Spiral Conveyors to many new prospects and integrators.

Ryson’s booth is running a tall Case Spiral Conveyor with a 16″ wide slats and a High Capacity Spiral with 24″ wide slats. The High Capacity Spiral is running with two induction conveyors to demonstrate how we can introduce packages at intermediate levels into the spiral both in the up, and down direction. The Multiple Infeed Spiral is getting much attention in the warehousing and distribution marketplace.
