Custom Engineering For Special Projects: Specialized Guide Rail

Ryson is developing a specialized guide rail design for spirals we’re building for a major beverage manufacturer.

The customer is inclining empty flap-up cartons from a carton erector to the carton packing machine on an adjacent mezzanine level. The challenge was to maintain orientation of (6) different carton sizes during the incline. The cover flaps are not yet scored and stand vertical causing some to be unstable.

Our engineering team designed a special guide rail system to trap them using a center rail and an extended-height outside UHMW guide rail.

The Spirals are our Narrow Trak model 1200-230’s which have a 9” wide nesting slat surface capable of speeds of up to 225 FPM. Here’s a product testing video of a guide rail design and testing for this spiral project.
