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.

The Ryson modular design allows a standard option for a reversible Spiral. 

reversible spiralThis week we shipped the first of two reversible spirals  model 1200-300 for our Integrator – Sentry Equipment & Erectors, Inc. – It will be delivered to a major craft brewery in the Pacific North West. The spiral option is often times used to create two way traffic, to and from an elevated mezzanine level.

Our reversible option includes our air tensioning device and an air manifold. The manifold consists of two pressure regulators, one for forward and one for reverse and a four-way spool valve whose solenoid shifts to the higher pressure when in reverse. Our reverse speed limit is 60 FPM. We can also furnish pre-wired control stations to make field implementation a breeze.

dynamic bufferingA Ryson reversible Spiral Conveyor can also be used in conjunction with a robotic pick and place module for dynamic buffering. The spiral conveyor provides vertical accumulation and buffers any imbalances in the flow of products or supply of cartons. The spiral accumulates products during over-supply and purges during times of under-supply, where the robot will load the cartons directly from the spiral. This dynamic buffering system compensates for intermittent operating interruptions and thereby significantly improves overall production efficiency.
