Ryson Mass Flow Spiral Small Footprint

The Ryson Mass Flow Spiral Conveyor has a substantially smaller footprint than the alpine conveyor in the background.

The Ryson Mass Flow Spiral Conveyor is an efficient space saver. In the photo above you can see a Ryson Spiral Conveyor in front of an alpine conveyor system.  This is from a recent installation in a glass bottle manufacturing plant. The integrator SML Packaging decided to use a Ryson Mass Flow Spiral instead of a conventional alpine conveyor system in a new line.

The photo clearly illustrates the space saving. The Ryson Spiral conveyor has a much smaller footprint than the alpine conveyor allowing a much more efficient use of floorspace, making it a more economical solution. The spiral needs only one drive motor and only one transition at the infeed and one in the outfeed; compared to an alpine conveyor which requires a motor and transition area at every turn. Clearly the Ryson Mass Flow Spiral Conveyor is a more efficient machine that offers space savings, energy savings and reduces installation and integration cost, which, over time minimizes the cost of ownership.

The Ryson Mass Flow Spiral conveyor comes in 10″, 12”, 16” or 20” wide slats with capacities of up to 2,000 units per minute. They are available in powder coated carbon steel, stainless steel and washdown versions. Visit www.ryson.com for more information on the Mass Flow Vertical Conveying Spiral.

The award honors a local business that has done the most to enhance the employment of people with disabilities within the past year. Ryson  outsources certain assembly work to Eggleston Services, an organization that empowers people with disabilities to work.

Eggleston employees insert rubber friction inserts into the slats used in the Ryson Spiral Conveyors.  Almost all of the Eggleston employees have been trained to prep slats and 14,000 are assembled each week.

This year, Eggleston started the assembly of T-bolts and nut assemblies as well as chain bags which are used with service chain in the field. Eggleson employees have visited Ryson’s manufacturing site, to see how the carriers and slats fit into the incline conveyors.

It is a rewarding win-win opportunity and we look forward to contunuing this meaningful relationship. Visit Eggleston Services for more information on their valuable program. Visit www.ryson.com for more information on how our spirals are made in our manufacturing plant in Yorktown, Virginia.

Ryson Hosts an Unleash Small Business Forum

This week, former Commerce Secretary Carlos Gutierrez held an “Unleash Small Business Event” at Ryson International. Gutierrez spoke with close to 100 small business owners about Romney’s plan to support small businesses, strengthen the middle class and how to champion manufacturing jobs and bring them back to our shores. He also spoke about the need to change burdensome regulations and reform the tax code to create millions of new jobs.

Mitt Romney will champion small business and return America to the best place to start a business or hire a worker. He is committed to reforming the tax code, ensuring trade works for America, and cutting our nation’s deficit.” – Former Commerce Secretary Carlos Gutierrez

The event was politically motivated, but the message was clear – Small business is the engine driving our economy, and it was appropriate to hold such an event at Ryson – one of Yorktown’s largest manufacturing plants.

Ryson Reconfigure Spiral ConveyorIn the spring of 2003, Ryson International manufactured a spiral conveyor for a large coffee retailer distribution center. They needed to incline cases and totes between levels of a pick module.

Nine years later, the end-user asked their conveyor integrator: Conveyor Handling Company to re-design their system. A spiral would be needed to decline with different elevation parameters and speed. With Ryson’s proprietary modular design, repurposing an existing spiral is easy, and considerably less expensive than the cost of a new vertical conveyor.

The old spiral was shipped to our manufacturing plant and was reconfigured. We are preparing to ship it back to be installed in their new system layout — At a fraction of the cost of a new spiral.

Spiral Repurposing with RysonWhat sets Ryson apart is that our modular designs allows for our customer’s spirals to be re-purposed to fit new line layouts. Many of these spiral reconfiguration projects are made in the field by our technicians, most of the time over a weekend.

Repurposing a 9-year-old spiral speaks volumes for the longevity and durability of our spiral conveyors and how we can lower the cost of ownership for our clients. Call the Ryson sales team if you think an existing spiral is a good candidate for reconfiguration.
