Ryson High Speed RotatorThe Ryson High Speed Rotator has the ability to rotate loads inline 90º or 180º. This specialized conveyor is used in packing lines where products need to be rotated upside down or to one side without delay or product damage. The Ryson High Speed Rotator can accommodate a wide range of load sizes without adjustment.

This week we’ll be shipping a high speed rotators for our Integrator Partner, Sentry Equipment. Sentry’s customer had a need to turn their display cases upside down just prior to the case palletizer, so that they can be stacked with that orientation.

 Ryson High Speed RotatorThe 16” wide tracks rotate the cases 90 degrees, then again another 90 at a speed of 120 FPM. This rotator is shown without the mandatory safety enclosure. These rotators are available in of 12”, 16”, 20” and 24” slat widths.

 Other applications of the rotator is in wineries where cases of empty wine bottles are rotated to uncase the bottles to the filling line.

You can read more application stories about the Ryson High Speed Rotator in this weekly blog, or visit the Ryson Website. The video below shows exerpts from the FAT video we sent to our integrator partner.

This week we shipped a product that many don’t associate with Ryson. The High Speed Rotator.

Ryson High Speed RotatorThis 90 degree case rotator system is an in-line way to rotate cases or bundles either 90 degrees or 180 degrees at speeds up to 200 feet per minute. This is an efficient method of reorienting product for downstream palletizing.

The Rotators utilize the Ryson proven chain slat arrangement which allows for twisting in the track to manipulate the load without any special guide rail. The Ryson High Speed Rotator can accommodate a wide range of load sizes without adjustment.

The video below shows the unit being tested at our manufacturing facility prior to being shipped.

The Ryson High Speed Rotator is an
innovative conveyor for in-line rotating of cases and other unitized loads.

This specialized conveyor is used in packing lines where products need to be rotated upside down or to one side without delay or product damage. The Ryson High Speed Rotator can accommodate a wide range of load sizes without adjustment.  The loads can be rotated 90º or 180º in a continuous motion.

Next week Ryson will be sending a custom rotator to an application that involves a 180 degree rotation of unsealed cases of empty glass wine bottles.  An automatic case depalletizer removes the cases from the pallet a layer at a time.  The cases are then singulated, oriented and conveyed to our rotator with the unsealed flaps facing up.  As show in the above video product test, the Ryson High Speed Rotator then rotates the case upside down,  and delivers it to an uncaser, which separates the bottles from the case.  The empty glass bottles get sent to the filler and the empty cases are conveyed to the packer, where the filled and labeled wine is “re-packed” into it’s case.

One of the challenging aspects of this project was the wide variety of case sizes that our Integrator – Barry-Wehmiller Design Group – wanted us to rotate. This required adjustable guide rail to prevent the bottles from leaving the case while being inverted.

The unit will be installed next month in a major winery in California and one of our technicians has been scheduled to oversee the start-up and perform training for the operators and maintenance staff.
