Custom Dual Track Spiral Implementation
We recently shipped and installed a custom Dual Track Spiral Conveyor that helped solve some production and layout challenges.
Our integrator partner, Creative Packaging Solutions, LLC, designed the spiral into a new line with a very tight layout. The Dual Track Spiral Conveyor is more compact than utilizing two side-by-side spirals because it is essentially two spirals on one frame.
This Dual Track model 1200-300/2000-300 Spiral has two independently-driven lanes of 12” wide overlapping slats, facilitating an elevation change of 10’-6”. The spiral will convey sealed cases from two separate packaging lines at a rate of up to 42 cases per minute.
Because of some interference created by the existing adjoining conveyor, we designed in a small section of MDR (Motorized roller) with a cantilevered frame at the infeed. This will also assure a smooth and reliable transfer into the spiral. We also pre-wired the controls for that Infeed as well as floor-mounted motor disconnects, reducing field implementation time and cost.
