An increasing number of Ryson Spirals are equipped with our proprietary induction and divert conveyor design that allows loads to enter or exit the spiral at intermediate elevation levels.

Ryson Induction and Divert Conveyor

Ryson 30″ and 16″ wide induction conveyors

The Ryson Induction and Divert conveyors are designed as an integral part of our multiple infeed or outfeed spirals. In addition to our belt-type induction conveyors, we have also developed new versions utilizing powered rollers. With 2 options now available, we are able to provide the optimal Induction and Divert Conveyor solution depending on the size and shape of the load that will be handled.

Both belt and roller versions are individually adjustable to match the spiral pitch, assuring a safe and reliable product transfer. These induction conveyors are available for all High Capacity and Wide Trak models and match their 16″, 24″, 30″ and 36″ wide slat widths.

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.

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.

This week, we had multiple spirals shipping with elevated leg support structures.

Elevated Leg Platform For Spiral ConveyorsIn the warehouse/distribution market, these structures are commonly designed to support our spiral conveyors that feed elevated levels of a pick module. All of these leg structures are custom engineered for each application, ensuring the best support with the most efficient space utilization. We fabricate them using structural steel shapes and can be engineered to conform to seismic requirements.

Elevated Leg Platforms For Ryson Spirals

The legs are a modular bolt-together design, to reduce freight cost and allow for easier movement from the truck to the installation area.The green support structure shown above will straddle a spiral sitting on the floor (Elevating product from level one to two), while supporting a spiral declining product from level four to level three.

Ryson stacked spirals Double Stacked Spirals: Next week, we’ll be shipping four spiral conveyors to a manufacturer of power tools for our Integrator Partner, Intelligrated.

The project includes two stacked spirals on top of each other. One spiral sits on the floor and elevates cases from the first level to the second level of a picking system. The upper spiral is mounted on a platform that straddles the lower spiral and brings cases down from the fourth level (32’-6”) to the third level.

This system is handling cases that weigh up to 75 lbs. at speeds of 150 feet per minute. Like our spirals, the support structure is modular, allowing it to be transported to the site in smaller panel sections for ease of handling and installation.

The spirals specified on the project are our 1800-650 and will be shipped on a step-deck flatbed to allow them to be shipped pre-assembled – which greatly reduces installation time.

Ryson Dual Track SpiralThis week, we travelled to a Beer Distribution center in Knoxville Tennessee. Our Integrator partner, ITW Warehouse Automation has installed a Ryson Dual Track Spiral Conveyor and their new automated order picking system is up and running great.

The spiral has infeeds at two separate elevations, the inside lane is fed from the first level of the pick module, and the outside lane enters from the second level. They both discharge onto the 3rd level to a sortation system.

Looking at the ITW’s system layout and the room they had to work with, it was the perfect application of this space-saving vertical conveying system. You can read about the same Spiral in a story from our manufacturing plant.

Ryson dual track spiralRyson recently built a Dual Track Spiral consisting of two 16” lanes with different discharge elevations.  

Our integrator partner PeakLogix, designed it to handle totes in a multi-level order picking operation at a distributor of hospital supplies in Virginia.. Totes are transported through the first picking level and if the order is complete, it goes to the inside lane and is conveyed directly to a 12′-6″ elevation and is conveyed to the shipping area. If additional picks are required on the second level, the tote goes to the outside lane which exits at 10’-0”.

The advantage of the dual track spiral in this application is the space savings of servicing two elevations within a 9’-0” diameter footprint.

Our technician was dispatched to assist the PeakLogix millwrights in the re-assembly of the spiral, which was installed over a 3-day weekend.

Ryson at Pack Expo 2012PACK EXPO International 2012 is the one and only event with the most innovative technologies and solutions that drive your business. The largest, most comprehensive processing and packaging event in the world. Ryson is looking forward to exhibiting thier spirals again this year. We will be running a Unit load spiral conveyor and our new high capacity mass flow spiral conveyor that can move up to 2000 bottles cans or jars per minute. We will also be showcasing a high capacity spiral conveyor with our new and improved slat design and our special induction conveyor for intermediate spiral entry both for the up and down direction.

We invite you to stop by our booth for a demonstration. If you are a systems integrator, we would love to show you some new features and we encourage you to bring your customers along. Ryson will be in booth N-5313. Click here for more information on our booth at Pack Expo. Let us know if you would like us to schedule a private demonstration for you or your customer.
