This Week Ryson is at Promat in Chicago. The hall is abuzz with the latest and greatest warehousing and logistics technology.

Ryson is at Promat This week

Ryson is showing a fully operating demo loop including two High Capacity Spirals with induction and divert-out conveyors at intermediate elevations.

The demonstration was a show-stopper. We are very pleased with the reception and it is clear that being able to run a loop is incredibly illustrative of real-world warehousing applications.

The operating loop clearly shows many of the features and benefits of the Ryson Spiral Conveyors. Some newer features were also highlighted:

Ryson Induction and Divert Conveyors

  • Extended In or Outfeed Tangents that can be straight or curved to fit challenging layout requirements.
  • MDR Induction Conveyor with friction coated rollers create an adjustable conveying surface to match spiral pitch assuring a smooth and reliable product transfer.
  • Divert arm with powered belt surface and an adjustable low friction MDR conveyor that assures controlled orientation of the loads as  they divert out of the spiral.
  • Special rounded (button) friction inserts thatprovide just enough friction to prevent products from sliding back in the spiral without preventing smooth side movement during induction or divert out.

Ryson Spirals are quickly becoming standard equipment in the warehousing sector. If you would like more information on the Ryson Spirals with intermediate level induction or divert out, visit our website, download our product literature, or read real world application stores from our weekly blog.

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.
