Dual Track Spiral with Two Different Infeed Elevations
Dual Track Spiral with Two Different Infeed Elevations: This week, we travelled to a Beer Distribution center in Knoxville Tennessee. Our Integrator partner, ITW Warehouse Automation has installed a Ryson Dual Track Spiral Conveyor and their new automated order picking system is up and running great.
The spiral has infeeds at two different infeed elevations, the inside lane is fed from the first level of the pick module, and the outside lane enters from the second level. They both discharge onto the 3rd level to a sortation system.
Looking at the ITW’s system layout and the room they had to work with, it was the perfect application of this space-saving vertical conveying system. You can read about the same Spiral in a story from our manufacturing plant.
