Tall Ryson NT: Ideal for Small Package ConveyingSmall package conveying: This week we’re shipping one of our Narrow Trak Spiral Conveyors, to a food manufacturer. The model 1700-150 NT will elevate single serve gelatin cups to a 20’ elevation at 290 per minute.

The system integrator, Nercon, will be end-transferring in and out of the spiral via a micro-pitch transfer. The spiral’s full width friction inserts keep the cups in position on the way up this 7-turn spiral, inclining at an angle just above 6 degrees.

This 6” wide slat Narrow Trak model is also available in a smaller diameter 4’-2”. The 1200-230 NT Model has wider 9″ slat surface with an outside diameter of 4′-9″.

The Narrow Trak Spirals offer a significantly larger elevation change capacity than what is currently available in the small package marketplace. They are also a good alternative to side gripper conveyors because they can run at high speeds and do not need to be adjusted for varying product sizes. The nesting slats have the capacity to reliably end-transfer small cartons and packages or side-transfer small bottles or containers in a single file or in a continuous mass flow.

Narrow Trak Spiral Conveyors used for Curing Time: This week we finished a pair of Narrow Trak Spirals that will be used for a not-so-common application.

Two Narrow Trak Spiral Conveyors used for Curing Time

The products being handled need curing time to solidify in their containers.  This is done in a temperature controlled, chill room.

By using two 1100-150 Narrow Trak Spirals this was accomplished in a very small footprint.

Each spiral has 8 turns, providing extra travel distance and keeping the incline angle low, which is important while waiting for the product to solidify. Depending on the products being handled, they may spend up to 4 minutes traveling through the spirals before exiting the room.

The two spirals are joined together at the top by our new micro-pitch conveyor.  This special conveyor is attached to, and mechanically driven by one of the spirals facilitating the smooth transfer of smaller products.

The design of the narrow trak slats allow the spirals to handle a variety of products without requiring any changes between products. The integrator on this project is Pendergraph Machines.

The Ryson Narrow Trak Spirals are great space savers with high throughput that can run at speeds in excess of 200 fpm.  These spiral conveyors are equipped with our 6” or 9” wide nesting slats which provide an efficient flat conveying surface without gaps.

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.

The micro-pitch conveyor is our newest accessory to the Narrow Trak family of spiral conveyors.

micro pitch conveyor

This micro-pitch transfer conveyor is slave-driven off the drive or idle-end shafts and is geared to match the speed of the spiral- perfectly –  even at high speeds.

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.

The Narrow Trak spirals are available in a 6” and 9” wide nesting slat design. The proprietary slat design have the capacity to reliably end-transfer small cartons and packages or side-transfer small bottles and containers in a single file or in a continuous mass flow. The Ryson Narrow Trak Spirals are great space savers with high throughput that can run at speeds in excess of 200 fpm.

The transfer unit is available in either a powder coated or stainless steel versions. For more information on the Ryson Narrow Trak Spiral conveyors, visit www.ryson.com, or download the NT product brochure.

Ryson NT Spirals going to a microbreweryThis week we shipped (3) spirals to a Canadian microbrewery for our Integrator partner, Pacific Packaging Systems

The project involved an incline and decline spiral handling full 12 and 18 ounce cans of beer at a rate of 250 per minute on our Narrow Trak spiral model 1700-150.  This combination allows the brewery to move raw materials and finished goods through the area by getting part of the production line off the floor and 8 feet in the air. The cans run single file at a speed of 100 FPM.

The photo shows the units ready for shipment. (still with the protective wrap on them for shipment). They are the Hybrid stainless steel option for operation in a wet environment.

The third spiral is a case handling spiral shipped in two sections because of some plant egress challenges.

Ryson Spirals are growing in the bottling market, and the Narrow Trak Spiral delivers some advantages that our larger spirals can’t always offer. For more information on the Ryson Narrow Trak Spiral Conveyors, visit www.ryson.com, or read more application stories on our blog.

Happy New Year from RysonEveryone here at Ryson would like to wish you a fantastic and fortuitous happy new year.

 

As 2017 draws to a close, Ryson President and CEO, Ole Rygh looks towards 2018 with this letter.

Ryson International was founded in 1995 and specializes in Vertical Conveying Solutions.  We manufacture a full line of Spiral Conveyors that satisfy most vertical conveying needs. Ryson Spirals need less floor space than conventional incline conveyor and are faster and more reliable than any elevator or lift.

This week, we’re shipping two Ryson Narrow Trak Spirals (an incline and a decline) for transporting empty plastic bottles up from a bulk depalletizing station to be conveyed overhead and then back down to the filler and labeler.

Ryson Narrow Trak Spiral Conveyor

Ryson Narrow Trak Spirals will be used to convey empty plastic bottles.

Our 6” wide slat Narrow Trak was specified, but needed to utilize the larger-diameter model (1700-150NT) to facilitate the tall bottle’s clearance through the spiral. The spiral was painted one of Ryson’s 200 standard RAL colors and has an elevation change of 8 feet at a speed of 60 feet per minute.

The NT Spirals offer a significantly larger elevation change capacity than what is currently available in the small package marketplace. They are also a good alternative to side gripper conveyors because they can run at high speeds and do not need to be adjusted for varying product sizes.

Ryson Christmas

Ole Rygh

Ole Rygh – President and CEO of Ryson International

Seasons Greetings from Ryson International.

As 2016 comes to an end, we would like to convey our greetings and thoughts to our end users, integrator partners and suppliers.

This has been a busy year for Ryson. In addition to very high business volume, we have also seen the introduction of our Narrow Trak Spiral product line. This has greatly expanded our overall product portfolio and has been very well reviewed by our customers.

We have also expanded and reconfigured our manufacturing operation to increase capacity and improve productivity. As a result we have been able to reduce our lead times by approximately 20% and we see this as a very important competitive tool.

We are ready for new opportunities in the coming year and we look forward to working with you soon.

HAPPY HOLIDAYS,  The Spiral Team.
