Operating Flexibility: Ryson Spirals Save Space. With the multiple entry spiral conveyors in a multi-tiered order picking system, that space savings is multiplied.
This week we are shipping a 30 foot tall high capacity spiral which will be installed in a four-level order picking system at a new grocery distribution center in North Carolina.
Totes and full cases are delivered from all four pick levels to this single spiral. At each level, a high speed induction conveyor will provide controlled entry to the spiral. The load is then conveyed at 150 feet per minute down to the floor level where the orders are consolidated prior to shipping.
This solution not only provides considerable space savings, the customer also benefits from optimal operating flexibility with less equipment needed. The system integrator on this project is Intelligrated.
