Dynamic Vertical Buffer for Packages

dynamic vertical bufferTwo Ryson Spiral Conveyors can be used together to provide a dynamic vertical buffer. 

A perfect example is this current project: Next week we’ll be shipping this combination of an up and down spiral that will serve as a dynamic vertical accumulation buffer. Our Integrator partner, Conveyor & Caster EFI, needed to create a method of dynamically storing over-wrapped absorbent products in the case of a downstream interruption in line flow.

The two Ryson model 1500-400 spirals (15’ tall) contain over 150 feet of conveyor length creating room for about (130) packs or about seven minutes of buffer. When the case packing operation stops, packs are diverted into the up spiral, while shifting to a lower speed, thereby creating smaller gaps between the loads. When the line flow resumes, packs are metered into the line from the spirals and the buffer is emptied.

Stay tuned for the case history of an upcoming project where we are doing the same type of off-line buffering on a very tall reversible spiral in front of a robotic palletizer.

Spirals used in Filling Operations

Ryson Case Spirals in Filling Operations: Here, Ryson Spirals convey boxes of empty bottle to a filling station. The bottles are then removed from the boxes, filled and put back in the same box. Spirals then send them to a robotic case palletizer.
